High Protein CArrot Breakfast Cake

High Protein Breakfast Cake with carrots, zucchini and walnuts.

Even though this breakfast tarte has been a staple for a while now because it’s 1) super easy to make in advance 2) high in protein and good fats and 3) pretty d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s, I have just come to realize that I still haven’t shared it on here. While I usually have it as a light breakfast, it also goes well as a sweet treat in the afternoon or after dinner. Mix in some chunks of apple and chopped walnuts, and don’t hold back on the cinnamon and you get a high protein “carrot cake like” tarte. So flavourful and so yummy!
