Honey, Fig & Almond Protein Cake


Continuing with my love for all things fig, I thought i'd create another Autumn recipe.

Baked figs give this gluten free cake a real gooey texture whilst keeping the calories down. This skinny cake contains only 152 calories per delicious slice. Each one packs a decent 15g protein hit too.

Servings: Makes 6 slices

Macros per slice: 152kcal / 15g protein / 7.5g carbs / 6g fat / 2.5g fibre

Ingredients:

45g almond flour (I used one by Sukrin available in the baking aisle of Tesco, Sainsburys & Waitrose)

60g vanilla protein powder

15g Sukrin Gold (or other sweetener of choice - again available at Tesco, Sainsburys & Waitrose)

150ml unsweetened almond milk

50ml water

2 eggs

2 fresh figs (sliced)

1 fresh fig (finely chopped)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp almond extract

30g honey

30g flaked almonds

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 180c.

2. In a mixer/food processor mix together all ingredients except the honey, flaked almonds & figs into a cake batter.

3. Stir in the finely chopped fig.

4. Spray a cake tin with 1 calorie cooking spray or line with baking paper & pour in mix.

5. Smooth top, add the sliced figs & almonds to decorate & drizzle over the honey.

6. Bake in the oven for 14 minutes.

7. Place on a wire rack to cool, slice, & eat! :-)
