Introduction

I adapted these from an amazing recipe on here called Healthy Carrot Cake. I substituted wholemeal flour for Allinson's wholemeal seed and grain, added a carrot, and substituted some of the brown sugar with Splenda to make it just a little more healthy. I also topped with a low fat icing and included in calorie count. Yum! I adapted these from an amazing recipe on here called Healthy Carrot Cake.

Ingredients

    6 egg whites
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 tbsp cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1.5 tsp vanilla essence
    0.5 cup Splenda
    1 jar ( 280 g ) applesauce ( very limited for choice in the UK )
    1 cup 2% milk
    2 tbsp baking powder
    2.5 cups Allinson's wholemeal seed and grain flour
    0.5 cup white flour
    3 large carrots, shredded
    75 grams crushed walnuts - I saved 25 grams to sprinkle on top!

    Icing:
    250g extra light cream cheese
    150g half fat sour cream
    0.5 cup Splenda


Directions

Combine egg whites, apple sauce, milk, sugar, Splenda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Then stir in flour and baking soda. Last, add carrots and walnuts. Bake at 175C for 20-30 minutes or until you can poke with a clean fork.

Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, sour cream, and Splenda for topping.
