LUPIN FLOUR RECIPES

 
 A/Prof Antigone Kouris PhD APD
 Nutrition Scientist & Dietician

"My patients kept asking me to recommend a healthy biscuit. Unable to do so, I decided to develop my own range. Two years in the making, Skinnybik cookies have a better energy and nutritional profile than many plain sweet biscuits due to their wholesome ingredients. Even though they are not super low in calories (despite my efforts!) you can't eat too many because they are so filling due to the fibre and chewy texture - so truly skinny. I have sold thousands to my patients and have successfully included them in their weight loss plans.
E
njoy with less guilt”.

 

Dr Kouris' tasty and healthy LUPIN flour recipes

 

CAUTION: Avoid lupin if you have a peanut allergy

Gluten free Reduced Carb Lupin Banana cake

 

This cake has 1/3 the sugar, 1/2 the carbs, double the fibre and protein of regular commercial banana cake (see table below). Has a fluffy texture and tastes delicious!

INGREDIENTS

100 gluten free flour (if you do not need to eat gluten free you can try wholemeal spelt flour instead and cake texture will be lighter)

100g lupin flour

130g (2 large) eggs

300g (3 medium) bananas, mashed

120g walnuts, chopped

60g dark brown sugar

30g canola oil

20g (3/4 cup) granulated natural (stevia/natvia) or artificial (splenda) sweetener (if you dont want to use sweeteners you can use sugar instead but cake will become high in sugar)

7g bicarb soda

10g cinnamon

2g ground clove

10g vanilla sugar

Method: Preheat oven to 180C (plus fan). Grease (or spray) a medium size loaf pan.
Beat eggs and add sugar, sweetener, oil, spices and vanilla. Add mashed banana.
In another bowl combine flours, walnuts and soda.
Spread batter into loaf pan.
Bake for about 30 min or when knife inserted into centre of cake comes out clean.
Set aside for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Instead of serving with icing, try a low fat Greek style yoghurt (e.g Chobani) mixed with vanilla, a little honey and cinnamon!

Even though this lupin banana cake is healthier, a typical serve (50g) still provides 145 calories, so take it easy! But 50g serve has only 6 g sugar, 12g carbs and 2.5g fibre which is much better than your regular banana cake (see below).
