I came up with this cake concept upon receiving a fantastic variety of products to sample for Glenisk.  I couldn’t resist coming up with new and interesting ways to use these fantastic protein packed fat free yogurts. I wanted to create a cake that could be used as a snack around training or even as an on the go breakfast, afternoon snack or a treat.

As the yogurt is sweetened slightly with Agave (natural sweetener) I did not add anything else to sweeten this cake which helped in keeping the calories down. Using a lot of coconut based ingredients added some healthy fat and additional sweetness.  The additional benefit of using Glenisk 0% Greek is that a slice of this cake provides 4 grams of protein.

This is a simple to make, healthy gluten free snack option perfect to curb and unwanted sugar cravings! 112 Calories a slice compared to 100 calories in a banana with the addition of protein and good fat make this a perfect lunch box addition!

Ingredients:

  • 0.5 cup of coconut flour
  • 450 grams Glenisk 0 % fat Greek yogurt vanilla flavoured
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 x ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup coconut oil

  • At this point you are ready for the secret ingredient! Add a 450 gram tub of Glenisk Greek Style vanilla 0% fat yogurt into your mix. Mix it through evenly
