- Healthy and easy baking recipes

Are you gluten intolerant or have celiac disease? Or are you simply trying to stay healthy - perhaps with a sweet tooth giving you a hard time? Then I have something for you: Healthy and easy cake, dessert and baking recipes - always gluten free and usually without refined sugar.


Personally I hate it when recipes becomes complicated or I need to run to a million different - and weird! - stores to get the ingredients. Carefree Cakes are easy and simple recipes based on ingredients you can buy at most supermarkets.


As you can see I’ve only just started and there will be plenty more to come!

Chocolate cake with coconut

- flourless, sugarfree and gluten free


400 g / 14 oz / 14 oz dates, pitted

75 g / 2.5 oz / 2.5 oz coconut oil

1 banana

4 tbsp coconut flour

85 g / 3 oz / 3 oz cocoa, unsweetened

Seeds from 1 vanilla pod

6 eggs


Measurements: EU / UK / US

Heat is always for fan forced ovens (multiply by 1.1 for conventional ovens)


Preparations the day before - if your dates are dried and not soft/mushy: Place the dates in a small bowl and press them together at the bottom of the bowl. Add boiling water, almost overflowing the dates. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator over night.


  • Remove the dates from the water (if you were soaking them overnight - and save the water: It is excellent for sweetening a cup of coffee or a smoothie).
  • Place the dates and the other ingredients in a foodprocessor/blender and mix for several minutes.
  • Grease a loaf pan and spoon the batter in the pan.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes in a preheated oven at 180C/355F.
