Easy Delicious Fruit and Spice Scan Bran Cake - high in fibre and the perfect treat for any day of the week.
High Fibre Cake
This Fruit and Spice Scan Bran Cake is my go to treat, when I want something high in fibre to enjoy with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
Usually I make a baked Cheesecake or muffins of some sort, but when I noticed some scan bran in the cupboard that needed to be used up, I just threw together some ingredients, aiming for a kind of bread and butter pudding and this totally hit the spot.
Moist, spicy, fruity - I couldn’t even taste the scan bran like you do in some cakes and it really was a nice substitute for the very high calorie filled bread and butter pudding recipes you see.
What is Scan Bran?
Scan bran is short for Scandinavian Bran Crispbread. A very high fibre and hard crispbread that is great for keeping you well satiated.
They are pretty hard to eat on their own, but with a good choice of toppings they can be more enjoyable. However you eat them, they are going to keep you fuller for much longer than any other cracker or bread.
