Granola cake, the same taste, just a bit healthier. With granola, whole wheat flour, walnuts and currants, a real treat.
Cake is delicious and you've got a lot of varieties. Some very tasty, but full of calories with a frosting and creamy filling. On the other hand you've also got the sugar free range, the healthy food cakes.
But this granola cake isn't sugar free, but it's still a bit more healthy than the usual cake (at least the ones I bake). You use granola, whole wheat meal and add some walnuts and currants.
And then you get this really rich cake, which is great as a snack at your coffee break.
It's a good taste!
