This is a great way to get veg into your diet. You can't taste the carrot but it makes the cake very moist and Moorish. With date nectar to add natural sweetness and the goodness of oats you can enjoy this cake knowing it's doing you some good.
1.5cupsoat flourmake your own blending oats in your food processor until you get a fine flour.
1chia egg1 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 3 tbsp orange juice or water. Mix & leave for 10-15 minutes to set.
1tspapple cider vinegaror lemon juice
1/2cupcacao powderor use cocoa
Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF
Grate the carrot and leave to one side. In a large bowl add the chia egg, peanut butter, date/agave/maple syrup, milk, vanilla, orange, apple cider and mix together. Now, add the salt, cacao, oat flour and baking soda and mix again. Add the carrot and chocolate chips and mix for one last time. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper and pour in the cake mix, spread evenly. Put in the oven on the middle shelf and bake for 35-40 minutes. Stick a cocktail stick into the centre of the cake to make sure it's cooked. If it comes out with cake mix on it leave in the oven for another 5 minutes. Remove the loaf from the tin and leave to cool fully on a wire rack. Enjoy as it is or decorate with chocolate spread (Sweet Freedom choc pot spread) and chopped nuts like I did. Delicious!
TIP: If you don't have orange extract use the zest from one orange. If you want to be extra healthy add chopped nuts or fruit instead of chocolate chips.
