Blueberry & Lemon hidden veg cake! Low calorie, high protein, no added sugar, gluten free, only 108 cals & over 7g protein per slice!

The Base:
👉150g oats (I use the gluten free ones from Aldi).
👉 Spoonful of baking powder. I also added a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.
👉 Scoop of whey – I used My Protein Salted Carmel – but use whatever flavours you like!
👉Blend the “dry” ingredients in the nutribullet, it turns the oats into “flour”.

👉Crack 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites into a mixing bowl and whisk up.
👉Grate a full carrot (peeled first) & courgette (skin left on).
👉 Blend 100g of blueberries (fresh or frozen).
👉Combine the “wet” eggs, grated veg and the blended berries all together, then whisk in the dry mixture until you have a bowl of “mud“. You might need to add a touch of milk.

👉Pour it into a lined baking tin and pop into the oven at 180, for 30 mins (give or take 5mins ovens will vary). Or until the cake is fully cooked (a knife / skewer come out clean).

Let it fully cool on a rack. It’s pretty tasty like this, without any topping on it.

The Topping:
My topping was super simple: Just 80g 0% Greek yogurt spread over the top of the whole cake with the back of a spoon like icing, and topped with a grated lemon rind.

📍Cals per slice using my topping (makes 8)
108 cals each (P7 C14 F2.5)
