I had a fun weekend. I’m used to not really have a weekend since I mostly work 6 days a week and have plenty enough other useful stuff to do. But this weekend I planned to spend time with my friends and do fun stuff. One of my friends recently got home from traveling for almost half a year, so we had to catch up and do some dancing! And so my friend from Refreshbug joined us as well, and stayed over. And what to do on a cold, dark and hungover Sunday? Yay, bake a healthy banana-carrot cake!
I love cookies but I need to stop eating those if I want to be able to wear my bikini again this summer. So we decided to bake something that is tasteful, heavy and healthy at the same time!
It’s just 125gr flour, baking powder, 115gr of melted (soy)butter, 2 eggs, 3 banana’s, 3 carrots, a hand full of raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. We literally didn’t use any sugar preparing this cake!
We mixed the carrot, banana’s, melted butter and eggs with a machine. After making a nice batter you just add the rest bit by bit and stir it with a spoon. In the oven for 50 min (180°C) and done! There’s your healthy breakfast or replacement for cookies and cake.
Last week I made another carrot banana cake, and added some cardamom and 2 apples as well. Tastes even better and a bit sweeter!
Wait, wait, wait for 50 minutes… (look at that cute face of her!)
