30 healthy cakes you'll love

At WW we’re always on the lookout for simple ways to make recipes healthier without compromising on flavour. With this in mind, we've nutritionally checked and created a collection of healthy cakes and sweet baking recipes. Our healthy baking recipes are all made with fresh ingredients, have no artificial sweeteners and use healthy fats and low-fat dairy products so you can enjoy these healthy desserts as part of a healthy well-balanced lifestyle.

Sometimes it can be the simplest changes that have the biggest impact. Get our healthy baking tips to learn quick swaps from increasing fibre and reducing fats to packing in extra fruit and vegetables to your baking.

Whether you are looking for a healthy birthday cake, kid-friendly cakes or just looking for some new healthy baking ideas, we have recipes you'll love.

Tip: If you are looking for a healthy chocolate cake, try our chocolate black bean cake. This gluten-free chocolate cake uses black beans instead of flour, which helps keep it lovely and moist.
