Healthier Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Healthier Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  This pineapple upside down cake is made healthier with whole grain flour and no refined sugars. It’s also vegan and gluten free.

This healthy pineapple upside down cake is super easy to make too!  I was amazed at how rich and buttery it tasted.

The pineapples caramelize during the cooking process so they are super sweet and juicy.  I used coconut butter instead of butter and it came out great. I don’t think you could taste the coconut at all.

Just caramelized pineapple deliciousness! I have also used coconut butter in my lemon blueberry cookies.


Healthier Pineapple Upside Down Cake - My Whole Food Life


I used sorghum flour in my pineapple upside down cake because I like the cake-like texture it produces.  It’s great in my pumpkin chocolate chunk cookies.

I am sure you can probably use gluten free oat flour as well.  This takes no time at all to make and your kitchen will smell amazing!

I know traditional pineapple upside down cake calls for maraschino cherries, but I didn’t want to use those since they are not healthy at all.

I garnished mine with dried cherries after it was cooked.  You might also be able to use frozen, thawed cherries.  Or you can just leave it plain.
