For this carrot cake (10 slices) 1 slice approximately has around:  70 kcal; 7 prot., 8 carbs, 1.3 fat, 2.2 fibre

Obviously, the numbers vary depending on the actual products you use.

It is a live-saver in a low carb diet and you can eat it with quark, nice-cream or any topping which your diet allows. Getting fit was never this easy!

 

3/4 Egg whites

1/2 Whey protein powder (unflavoured or matching flavour of your choice)

1 banana

1/2 cup rolled oats

2 tbsp coconut flour (flakes will work too)

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup peeled and grated carrot (I added 1/2 cup and it worked well)

Cinnamon, Vanilla extract and stevia or sweetener of your choice – add according to your taste

 

  1. Preheat oven to 160C
  2. Blend all the ingredients together, except grated carrot
  3. Stir the carrot and place batter into your cupcake or loaf pan, remember that batter will ‘grow’ so do not fill the pan for more than 3/4
  4. Bake 35-40 minutes
  5. Remove from the oven and leave to cool

Enjoy!
