FIT CARROT CAKE LOAF (vegan, macro-friendly, low-sugar, oil-free) 🥕🍰Save this recipe if you are a carrot cake lover! ⁣

Who says you can’t have your cake abs eat it too? 🤪 Bringing back this old favourite of mine today! I used my go-to healthy frosting recipe made from tofu! But if tofu isn’t your thing then feel free to use a cream cheese or yoghurt and get creative ✨⁣

FIT CARROT CAKE LOAF (vegan, macro-friendly, low-sugar, oil-free) ⁣

Serves: 8 (per slice: 147 cal, P: 10g, C: 21g, F: 2g) ⁣

INGREDIENTS:⁣
✅ 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour⁣
✅1/2 cup vegan vanilla protein powder (I used macr0mike – discount code “amb-chen” )⁣
✅ 1/2 cup granulated sweetener (can sub for 3/4 cup brown sugar) ⁣
✅ 1 teaspoon cinnamon ⁣
✅ 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg ⁣
✅ 1 cup shredded carrots ⁣
✅ 1/2 cup applesauce ⁣
✅ 1 cup almond milk + more if needed ⁣
*Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, walnuts to stir through ⁣

HEALTHY CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:⁣
✅ 150g firm tofu ⁣
✅ 1 tablespoon lemon juice⁣
✅ 1 tablespoon maple syrup (I used sugar free)⁣

METHOD:⁣
1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C/ 350 degrees F, fan-forced. Prepare a loaf tin with non-stick paper.⁣
2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, protein powder & sugar ⁣
3. Add in the applesauce, non-dairy milk and optional vanilla extract. Mix until no dry flour remains. You may need to add a dash more milk if the mixture seems too dry ⁣
5. Gently stir through the carrot shreds and optional walnuts.⁣
6. Transfer the batter to the prepared tin ⁣
7. Bake in the oven for 30-35 mins until a knife inserted comes out clean ⁣
8. Allow the loaf to cool before frosting⁣
9. Make the FROSTING: add the tofu, maple syrup and lemon juice to a blender and blend until thick & smooth. Smear the frosting evenly over the carrot cake loaf before slicing.⁣
*Storage tips: in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days⁣

Serving suggestions: slightly warm, with a smear of nut butter ✨ ⁣

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it 💓⁣
