Low GI Cake

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.

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.

    yumm, yum, yum – I’ve cooked up a batch of these and they are very good! I tweaked it a little to fit what I had in my cupboards – so I used cinnamon instead of ground ginger and used oatly instead of oil, and the result is spot on! The coconut give it a nice texture and the banana anc cocoa combination is obviously a classic. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on the top, plus a few shavings of our favourite willies, just for an extra special treat. Good recipe Laura, top marks from me x
