Almonds and cakes are such a great mix for making delicious, creative, and fun cakes. Almond flour and almond milk make for great bases for these tasty cakes, and adding almond butter and almonds themselves really enhance the texture, flavor, and most importantly your satisfaction.

From the Food Monster App, here are 15 cake recipes containing almond ingredients that we believe will bring you lots of almond joy!

You will need a couple of ripe bananas, almonds, coconut oil, some sweetener, a blender, and a dehydrator. Easy, right? The almond butter is kind-of solid because the almonds are mixed with coconut oil and kept it in the refrigerator. You can also make a caramel paste to spread it nicely onto the crêpes. This dish by Nadia Petrova is an amazing blend!
