Healthy Buckwheat Carrot Cake
Looking for a sweet, flavorful and dessert-like (yet healthy) snacking cake?
Well, this Buckwheat Carrot Cake is it! Each slice is full of spices typical to carrot cake, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, along with the classic orange specks from freshly grated carrots, plus a little hint of citrus to brighten it all up. Except, there’s something a little different between a regular old carrot cake and this carrot cake…
This cake healthy.
And it is sweet, satisfying and flavorful enough to be eaten on its own. You don’t need a heavy, buttery and sugary cream cheese frosting!
(But, if you did, this healthified version is definitely the way to go)
Without the frosting, this cake is portable so you can take it with you on the go to school, work, the gym, wherever. It’s the perfect pick me up and you’d never know it’s actually good for you, nutritious and totally guilt-free!
^^ Now THAT is the perfect breakfast (or lunch or snack or dessert) right there!
This Healthy Buckwheat Carrot Cake is so nutritious and delicious you can have it all throughout the day.
It’s sugar free, low fat, high fiber, gluten free and vegan?? I’ll take a slice right now thank you very much. Wait, make that two…
^^ This is my very first GIF, so if it doesn’t work properly, sorry!
(I’m technologically inept)
Anyways, I topped my cake with a big spoonful of fresh, homemade cashew butter and a big drizzle of pure maple syrup. Because us Canadians know how to do things right.
Here is the cake’s nutrition label:
Mmmm, a nutritionally balanced cake (with only 90 calories, might I add). Totally breakfast material.
This moist and flavorful cake is whole grain, refined sugar-free, high fiber and full of complete protein, so it’ll keep you full and satisfied all morning long.
There is nothing more delightful than a slice of cake in the morning 🙂
