5. Greek Walnut Spice Cake

walnutoliveoilrecipe_2013_07_04This whole wheat spice cake isn’t totally guilt free, but the nutritional value of the ingredients more than make up for it. Walnuts provide a huge dose of omega-3 antioxidants, while heart-healthy whole grain flours provide tons of fiber.

Add the monounsaturated fats of olive oil, and this cake is just about as healthy as cake can be. Orange zest, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon bring warmth and big flavor to this Mediterranean dessert. Sound good? Follow this recipe to make your own Greek walnut spice cake.
