Fizzy Lemon Fingers (fat-free!)

fizzy lemon fingers

How does a super tasty fat-free lemony treat sound? Good?  I thought so. Along with a cup of tea, this is a great afternoon pick-me-up which will only take a few minutes to prepare.

So what makes these cake fingers fizzy? The combination of baking soda and lemon juice creates a sherbet-like sensation which any citrus fans will love.

If you don’t have any stevia, simply substitute in half a cup of caster sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Fizzy Lemon Fingers

Makes around 8 fingers. Preparation time 10 minutes plus 20 minutes baking.

Ingredients:

  • One cup of plain flour (use rice flour to make it gluten free)
  • One-quarter of a cup of NuNaturals Stevia MoreFiber Blend
  • Teaspoon of baking powder
  • Half a teaspoon of baking soda
  • One banana, mashed
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • Teaspoon of NuNaturals liquid vanilla stevia
  • One egg, beaten

Method:

    1. Preheat oven to 180  degrees. Spray a loaf pan with oil
    2. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl – flour, stevia powder, lemon zest, baking powder and baking soda.
    3. Combine wet ingredients together in another bowl – mashed banana, lemon juice, liquid stevia and beaten egg.
    4. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry until thoroughly combined. The mixture may get a bit frothy but don’t worry, this is where the fizziness comes from!
    5. Bake for around 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and placing on a wire tray.

Have you ever baked with stevia? Do you ever cook without fat?

    That sounds good. You could probably easily make that recipe into more of a protein bar as well. Great idea!
