Whoever said eating healthy had to be boring? This easy protein loaf cake is the perfect thing to whip up in advance & have for breakfast, pre/post-workout or just as a nutritious snack.
It provides you with slow-release carbs, protein, good fats & contains no added sugar.
This recipe makes two 1lb sized loaf tins, but if you just wanted to make one simply halve the quantities.
125g of wholemeal spelt flour
100g of vanilla/natural protein powder
(I use Sunwarrior vanilla protein & really recommend it for baking)
1 tsp baking powder
100g of stevia
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp of cinnamon
50g Greek yoghurt
250g sliced apples
Set oven to 180°C
Blend the half the walnuts, banana, butter, yoghurt, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon & stevia in a food processor.
Add the sieved spelt flour & protein powder.
Line the tin with greaseproof paper (I use these hassel-free cases).
Evenly place half the cake mixture inside the tin.
Place half the sliced apple on top of cake mixture, then add the remaining cake mixture on top.
Top with remaining sliced apple & walnuts.
Place in the oven & bake for 50 minutes - 1 hour.
The cake is really moist & sweet due to all the apple in the center. It will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
Pop a slice into your gym bag to have after a workout, or serve warm with yoghurt as a delicious healthy dessert.
