What’s Good About It?

Low in sugar, high in protein and fibre this is a delicious, healthy treat but equally great as a breakfast option. The addition of olive oil provides plenty of monounsaturated fats which are known for their anti-inflammatory benefits.



  1. Grease and line a 20cm spring form cake tin.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C
  3. Place all the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a food processor and process until smooth. If it is too stiff then add a splash of dairy free milk.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the cake tin and smooth the top. If wished add a few extra chocolate chips to the top of the cake.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool then cut into slices and serve.
