Her eyes were full of outrage while I ate it, á la how-could-you-be-eating-ALL-that-CAKE-at-NINE-thirty-AM-! But there I was, smiling ear to ear - enjoying the hell out of my creation :-D
I'm telling you this because the exact same thing happened today, only this time it was at the gym. And this time, one could say the outrage was more directed (because the gym tends to make people more aware of their and others' food choices).
I grabbed a seat across from a woman who looked like she just finished workout out (all the tables are shared because, well, there aren't that many). I opened my bag, took out my tupperware, 'exposed' a big slices of cake and BOOM: munched it!
She then gave me a look of "are you sure that's the best thing to be eating post-workout?" The kind of look that you and I probably save for the people that down all makes of junkfood after the gym because they've 'earned it'. But whatever, I just ate my cake with immense gusto and left ;-)
1 can of aduki (or black) unsalted beans (cooked)
1/2 cup of liquid egg whites
1/2 cup of chocolate whey protein powder (I used this)
1 pot (300g) of low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
3/8 cup of date syrup
3 tbsp of coconut flour
1 tsp of baking powder
Blend everything together and bake in a cake pan at 170 C (370 F) for about 45-40 minutes or until, when stabbed with a knife, your knife comes out clean. Make sure you don't overbake the cake is the only thing I'd say. You want it JUST cooked, ideally still a bit moist in the center so it's nice and moist inside :-) When it's done, let it cook, take it out of the pan and sprinkle some cocoa on top with a sift!
If you slice the cake into eight BIG slices, each slice:
19g carbs (out of which 5g is fiber!)
