5 from 1 review

8-ingredient Paleo Marble Pound Cake made with coconut flour, coconut oil and other simple ingredients for a healthier pound cake recipe that is also nut-free.

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 32 mins
  • Total Time: 42 minutes

Yield: 9 slices 1x


  • 6 large pasture-raised eggs
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (from a can – shake it up!)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (I don’t usually bake with honey and coconut sugar is too grainy for this)
  • 1/2 cup Garden of Life Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, softened a bit but not melted (almost like ghee consistency!)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut flour (I don’t recommend another flour here!)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 baking dish well (you can also use a round dish too but baking time may vary)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, coconut milk and maple syrup with a hand mixer or very well by hand
  3. Add in the coconut oil and vanilla extract and mix again
  4. Mix in the coconut flour and baking powder and mix so there are no clumps of flour and the batter is smooth and well combined
  5. Add about half the batter to a smaller bowl and mix in the cacao powder
  6. Alternate adding the batters to the baking dish then spread evenly with a spatula 
  7. Bake in the oven for 32-35 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean!)
  8. Drizzle melted chocolate on top if desired πŸ™‚
