  • 100 grams Coconut Oil (At room temperature)
  • 120 grams Coconut Sugar
  • 2 Eggs (Beaten)
  • 1 Medium Courgette (Grated)
  • 3 tbsp Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 115 grams Spelt Flour
  • 50 grams Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 50 grams Ground Almonds
  • 1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp Natural Cocoa Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt


  • Preheat oven to 360F (180C). Grease a bread tin with oil or line with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl whisk together coconut oil and sugar, until fluffy. Then gently mix in the eggs, courgette, milk and vanilla until well combined.
  • In another bowl combine the rest of the ingredients, and gradually add them to the other bowl mixing until combined. Don’t over-mix as it will make the cake tough.
  • Transfer the mixture to the lined bread tin and bake for 45-55 minutes. Test with a skewer if it comes out clean then it is cooked inside.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the tin, and then transfer to wire rack and cool completely before enjoying.
