This Healthy Peanut Butter Breakfast Cake contains no butter/oil or refined sugar, and is gluten free, dairy free, and delicious! A great breakfast to leave you feeling pleasantly full until lunch – also a tasty snack or dessert!
On Tuesday, I was reading through Amanda’s “15 Quick & Healthy grab-n-go breakfasts” post on Running With Spoons (visit her blog – she’s got loads of great healthy recipes!) and decided that I should probably post a breakfast recipe of some sort!
There are so many options when it comes to deciding what you are going to eat first thing in the morning – sweet, savoury, fried, baked, toasted, refrigerated, frozen?
For today I picked this healthy peanut butter cake, which is baked:
I would just like to mention the wonderfully soft texture of this cake. As you cut the traybake into squares, small crumbs fall from the sides – just like with a ‘normal’ cake. But believe it or not, this breakfast cake is:
– Gluten free
– Refined Sugar free
– Dairy free
-Made without butter/oil
-Packed with protein (5 grams per slice)
-Substantial, leaving you full until lunch
-Can be eaten for Breakfast, Snack or Dessert
You won’t be able to tell – just look at the soft, cake-y texture!
Can’t see all that healthiness hiding in there? Nope, neither can I. Try again?
Because I used unrefined muscovado sugar (dark), I haven’t tried this recipe with honey, maple syrup or date syrup. I reckon they’ll work if you use the same amounts.
You could eat this as a snack, for dessert, or for breakfast – I ate a slice with some banana😍
