Yields1 Serving
Total Time45 mins
 4 Eggs
 ¼ cup Maple Syrup
 1 ½ cups Almond Flour
 1 tsp Baking Powder
 360 g Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1

Preheat the oven to 400°F and prepare a 9" nonstick round cake pan by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray, greasing it with butter, or lining it with parchment paper.

2

In a large mixing bowl, crack 4 eggs and add maple syrup. Whisk until combined. Other sweeteners like honey, sugar, or Splenda can be used as alternatives.

3

Add almond flour and baking powder to the egg mixture, then mix with a spoon until fully combined. Fold in the blueberries.

4

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a screwer comes out clean.

5

Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes before serving.

6

Storage:

To store at room temperature, cover the cake or store it in a container for up to 4 days.

For longer storage, place it in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week, or freeze it for several months.

When freezing, allow the cake to thaw at room temperature instead of using a microwave to defrost.

Blueberries aren't just about their vibrant colour; they're bursting with nutritional benefits! Loaded with antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals, they're considered a powerhouse superfood. Blueberries support heart health, help regulate cholesterol, blood pressure, and even assist in managing diabetes. With just one cup, you can get 25% of your daily vitamin C intake. Plus, they're relatively low in sugar compared to other fruits, making them a fantastic snack option for both kids and those keeping an eye on their calorie intake.

Compared to wheat flour, almond flour has lower sugar and carbohydrate content. Using almond flour can aid individuals with diabetes in better controlling their blood sugar levels. Almond flour is rich in prebiotic dietary fiber, which is metabolized by bacteria in your small intestine.
