    Healthier Red White and Blue Mini Cakes (Gluten-Free, Paleo)

    This naturally gluten-free fourth of July dessert is made with fruits, coconut flour & almond flour, almond butter and coconut sugar.  The frosting in the pictures is cream cheese frosting because I had some leftover but I have also made them with coconut whipped cream for Paleo option, and it’s fantastic!

    INGREDIENTS

    Cream Cheese Frosting (see notes for Paleo version)

    • 8 oz cream cheese
    • 1/2 cup butter, softened
    • 3 cups powder sugar , (or erythritol)
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Mini Cakes Rounds

    • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line 2 round pans with removable bottoms with a cut round parchment paper.
    • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, coconut oil, almond butter and vanilla extract until fully combined.
    • Add the coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt to the wet ingredients and mix well. 
    • Pour the batter into the prepared round pans. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
    • Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. 

    Cream Cheese Frosting (see Notes for Paleo Coconut Whipped Cream)

    • While the sheet cakes are baking, mix the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. 
    • Add confectioner's sugar (or erythritol), 1/2 cup at a time. Add in vanilla extract and beat on high speed until light and fluffy.

    Assembly

    • Carefully, remove the sheet cakes with the bottom from the pans. Cut out cake rounds using a round biscuit/cake cutter. You should get about 12 cake rounds.
    • Add about 2 Tbsp of frosting on 6 of the cake rounds and spread it out, then add the other 6 cake rounds on top. Add another 2 Tbsp of frosting on top  of the mini cakes, and spread it out. Just before serving, top them with raspberries and blueberries.

    NOTES

    For Paleo version, instead of Cream Cheese Frosting, use this Coconut Whipped Cream.

    I’m allergic to coconut. What should I replace the coconut flour and coconut sugar with?

      Hi Jan,

      I haven’t tried substituting the coconut flour with another flour but I believe almond flour could work. Because coconut flour absorbs liquids very well (compared to almond flour), you will need to make sure the consistency is not too runny. Just don’t use any coconut oil at all. If the batter is too thick, add a little bit of shortening of your choice. And you can substitute the coconut sugar with brown sugar. Hope it turns out good! 🙂

    Hi there, curious where I might find the coconuts frosting recipe? I’m on my mobile and it’s not popping up on this page. I’m spending the Fourth with my best friend, who is Paleo me would love to make these with that version of the frosting? Thank you so much!
