Lemon, Blueberry and Coconut Cake with a Maple Icing 🍁 (Meal Prep, Vegan Option)

I made this cake for Mother’s Day a month ago and it was super delicious and moist! So, I have been making this cake for our snacks during the week. It’s super easy to make and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry/fridge. It’s also healthier as it’s made with wholemeal flour, Greek yogurt and blueberries.

This cake is also meal prep friendly as it lasts in the fridge for up to a week. It also makes a great snack for your mid morning pick me up or when your sweet cravings strike at 3pm! Or if you are looking for a easy breakfast on the go, you can pair this cake with some high protein yogurt and nut butter on the side to make this cake part of a more complete breakfast 🤤 Or if you are like me, you prefer to have this cake with a cup of free tea before bed! So, tell me how do you like to have your cake? Breakfast, snack or dessert?
