I had a play around in the kitchen today to make a cake that is both fussy foodie friendly and low GI. I managed to make a very easy low GI cake, using basic ingredients and no sugar, dairy, wheat or egg. If you can’t eat oats you could try using gluten free puffed rice cereal instead – let us know the results.
Low GI cake ingredients (makes 8-10):
- 100g oats
- 40g dessicated coconut
- 2 small or 1 large banana, mashed
- 6 tbsp oil (i used rapeseed)
- 6 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tbsp cocoa
- 1tsp ground ginger
Low GI cake Recipe:
Mix it all the ingredients together, spoon into 8-10 cake cases (or could be done as a tray bake) and bake at 180C for 40 minutes. These Low GI cakes really are simple as, love to know what you think.
