Here’s a non-chocolate recipe for a change. I know what you’re thinking – it’s not like Nadia to post a chocolate free recipe, what’s going on? Well as strange as this may sound I don’t actually eat chocolate all day everyday! In fact, some days I won’t have any chocolate at all (shocker!). However, what I can’t live without is something sweet, even if it’s simply a piece of fruit.

So we’ve established that this cake has no chocolate but what it does have is blueberries…it may not taste like chocolate but, like cocoa, it’s full of antioxidants, vitamins C, B, E and A. They’re also a good source of selenium, iron and zinc.

This yummy, moist protein cake is excellent for a pre/post-workout snack and only contains 99 calories per slice!! Yep, this blueberry protein cake is high in protein and low in calories. Oh and did I mention it tastes amazing?

This blueberry protein cake is gluten free and sugar free.
