Josh's super protein carrot cake with protein icing



- 2 Large carrots (2 cups grated)

- 2 tbsp salted caramel noode protein powder.

- 2 Cups flour

- 2 Tsp baking powder

- 1 cup coconut sugar (or 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup)

- 2 Tsp flax seed (to make egg substitute, alternatively use egg)

- 1 Tsp cinnamon 

- 1 Tsp Nutmeg

- 1 Tsp all spice

- 5 dates 

- drops of vanilla extract 

- 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar 

- 1/2 cup of olive oil

- 1/4 cup chopped pecan



- 1 Tbsp vanilla noode protein powder

- vanilla essence 

- 1 Tbsp soy or otherwise non-dairy milk

- 1 Tsp lemon juice

- 1 tbsp coconut oil 


  1. Heat oven to 180c bake.
  2. In a mixing bowl; Sift flour, noode protein, spices and baking powder. Stir to combine. Add sugar.
  3. Add carrots to mixing bowl, mix well and be patient; the flour will draw out the moisture in the carrots. 
  4. Add flax eggs (flax seeds soaked in water 1tsp:1tbsp ratio) or regular eggs. Add oil, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, dates and pecans.
  5. Pour mixture into cake or small baking dish of your choosing. Cook at 180 for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer poke comes out clean.
  6. Combine icing ingredients in a bowl (ensure coconut oil is liquid) and whisk well. Wait for cake to cool before pointing on icing. Topped with chopped pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup.

7. This can be kept in the fridge to set icing well or at room temperature. Enjoy!

Great pea protein!

I love the vanilla bean protein! Great taste, mixes with oats well or even just with water for a shake. Sweetens things up without being sickly at all, not gritty either. I had been using NuZest for years but needed to switch and I tried all the pea proteins I could find! Noode was the best!
Also love the salted caramel. Great in bliss balls and baking etc. Not a fan of chocolate protein in general, but this one seemed ok?? Chocolate isn’t my thing though, so probably not a good judge there.
Definitely found my new go-to protein though :)

Vegan natural pea protein

Love this protein. Best tasting pea protein I have had.

Bit of a surprise with no sweetener at first but usually add banana or kiwi fruit to morning shake - and even a teaspoon of honey so all good - vanilla one too sweet .

Natural Pea Protein powder

Great product with great flavour and super easy and smooth to mix!

Love it!

I am definitely buying more of these tubs!
