Secret Veg Chocolate Protein Cake

Let’s get the secret out of the way: it’s sweet potato, zucchinis/courgettes, spinach and it’s ‘secret’ because it tastes like pure chocolate heaven.

Ingredients:

170g sweet potato
30g fresh organic baby spinach
50g chocolate hemp protein powder
10g cocoa powder
1 medjool date
80g greek yogurt
145g liquid egg whites
10g apple fiber
136g grated zucchini

Directions:

1. Blend sweet potato, baby spinach, hemp powder, cocoa powder, the medjool date, greek yogurt, egg whites, and apple fiber in a bowl.

2. Add grated zucchini and mix with a fork. (You’ll want to squeeze the water out of the zucchini with a paper towel).

3. Bake at 160 celsius for 30-40 minutes.

Macros per Serving (out of 1):

552kcals
9g fat (1g saturated)
78g carbs (26g sugars/6.5g fiber)
47g protein

That’s it. With some almond butter on top, the stuff was really mmmmmmm :-) Pretty cool, no? I mean, once slice (i.e. 1/4 of the cake) is only 138kcals, 11.7g protein, 19.5g carbo, 2.25g fat and 6.5g fiber! You could up the protein by adding some pea protein to the mix and/or a bit of whey (watch out for adding too much whey though because it can suck the moisture right out of the cake and leave you with a relatively rubbery concoction).
