Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake has only two tablespoons of coconut flour and is packed with coconut balls that are covered in a light chocolate cake.

I love making coconut desserts like No Bake Almond Joy Rolls and Paleo Coconut Crack Bars.

These Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake is packed with coconut and chocolate flavor. It turns out that when it comes to coconut, you either love it or hate it. If you happen to be a coconut lover just like I am, then this Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake is something you must try.

The secret to this Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake is ricotta and obviously lots and lots of coconut flakes. Ricotta gets mixed with eggs, sugar and coconut flakes, rolled into balls. Then later are covered in chocolate batter, baked to perfection and covered in melted chocolate and some crunchy almonds.

Each and every slice of this Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake will featured a cut of the coconut balls. It makes for an interesting look. Also, what I like more is that it reminds me perfectly of the Almond Joy or Bounty chocolate Bars. The coconut mixture is still on its own, covered by the chocolate just like the bars. The coconut balls are rich, dense, chewy and packed with coconut flakes.

After I made this No Bake Almond Joy Bar, I just couldn’t stop thinking about another coco-nutty dessert. In addition I wanted also something easy to make. Bonus points is that you can safely share this cake with your gluten free friends. On the other hand, this Almond Joy Gluten Free Cake is so rich and decadent, that no one will ever suspect that its gluten free unless you tell them.
