Lunchbox-friendly carrot and zucchini cake

While it’s still what you might call a ‘sometimes’ food, this cake is higher in fibre and lower in added sugar than most pre-made options.

It’s also nut free, making it a great option for a healthy lunchbox treat for the kids.

Why not make a batch (or two) and freeze in individual slices. This makes it easy to defrost and reheat a slice for morning tea.

We love making healthy versions of the things you love as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

There’s no need to miss out on treats while you lose weight in a healthy way. Find out about the next 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge HERE.
