Diabetic desserts are so much more than the usual sweets and pastries.

They can be delicious, healthy and even fun.

I had to do my own baking.

I chose to use the best ingredients to make my own birthday cake and I used an easy to make cake recipe to make it simple and tasty. 

First, you will need: 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup almond flour 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup milk (1 cup = 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk) 1 cup chocolate chips (or 1/3 cup cocoa powder) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup butter (1/4 cup = 2 tablespoons) 2 large eggs (2 tablespoons = 2 eggs) 3/4 cups sugar (1 tablespoon = 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons) Directions: In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and milk until smooth.

Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well. 

Roll the dough out on a floured surface.

Cut in the butter until it is just about 1/8 inch thick.

Fold the dough in half, leaving 1 inch uncut end to make a round.

Press into the center of the circle.

Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. 

Once cooled, cut into 1 inch squares and store in the refrigerator for at least a week.

If desired, use them to make birthday cakes for friends or family. 

Recipe Notes: If you have a hard time sticking to the recipe, you can simply store the dough at room temperature.

Once baked, they are not as dense and will stick to the pan when you try to spread them. 

If you make these, I would love to hear how you did it.
