Fruit-Sweetened Triple Coconut Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut flour
  • 1 cup date paste (about 16 Medjool dates blended with 1 cup hot water)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 1/2 shredded, unsweetened toasted coconut
  • Optional toppings: coconut whipped cream, date caramel, coconut milk, and shredded toasted coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the almond and coconut flour and stir to combine.
  3. Add the date paste, applesauce, coconut extract, and 2 cups of almond milk. Stir to combine.
  4. Once that is all incorporated, add the final cup of almond milk.
  5. Fold in the toasted coconut and mix until everything is combined.
  6. Bake the cake for 1 hour. Allow the cake to cool for at least 1 hour in the pan, and even after that it may be fragile when you turn it out.
