Healthy Carrot Protein Cake


Yep, I said it–it has protein, it’s healthy and scrumptious! 8 Servings.

Ingredients

1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup water or unsweetened almond milk (I used unsweetned almond milk).
2 cups shredded organic carrot
2 cups shredded organic zucchini (or one large zucchini)
3/4 cup Stevia
1/2 cup unsweetend apple sauce
1/2 cup almond flour
1 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup egg whites
2 Tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tsp ground nutmeg
pinch cloves (optional)
2 Tsp baking soda

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350.
Grate the carrots and zucchini (I used my blender).
In a large batter bowl, mix in chia seeds with the sugar until creamy, then stir in the apple sauce until well mixed.
Add in the flour, protein powder, spices, salt, and baking soda, and mix well.  Add almond milk or water as necessary to achieve a “batter” like texture.
Stir in the carrots and zucchini.
Pour/spread into the prepared pan.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Bake approximately 50 minutes until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
