Healthy Birthday Cake

birthday cake, healthy, healthy birthday cake, dessertONLY 5 INGREDIENTS!!! Thank you to @tastyhealth for the recipe!

150g whole almonds
1 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp granulated sweetener of choice
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Whole eggs plus 2 egg whites

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 7" or 8" round pan with parchment paper
2. Place almonds in a food processor and run for a couple minutes until the almonds are ground to a course meal.  Put the almond meal in a bowl, add baking powder and stir well.  Set aside.
3. Whisk one egg white in a bowl until stiff and set aside.  This will take a long time by hand so an electric mixer would be a HUGE help!!
4. In a mixing bowl beat eggs plus one egg white with sweetener (I used stevia) until fluffy. Add the almond meal and stir just until evenly combined.  GENTLY fold in the stiff egg white.  DO NOT STIR!  You want to keep the air in the batter.  Pour into the pan and immediately put in the oven.
5. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until cake has risen.
6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, run a knife along the sides and invert the pan onto a large plate.
7. When it is completely cool, cut cake in half and fill it with whatever you like!  I used mashed up bananas and Justin's Hazelnut PB (whipped with milk).  Top with cool whip or frosting!!  SOOO GOOD!!
