  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months. 
  • The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener (sugar substitute) that is used in this recipe is zero points. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use. Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener also has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.


  • 1 3/4 cup kodiak pancake mix or all purpose flour 
  • 3 Tbsp light butter- I use Land O’Lakes light butter or I can’t believe it’s not butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup zero point white granulated sweetener – I use Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener
  • 1 egg or 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice 
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp Kodiak mix or flour 
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar crystals, optional

  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. You could also use a 9×13 dish but keep in mind the pieces won’t be as thick. I like the thickness that the 9×9 pan gives this cake. 
  • In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with 2 Tbsp flour; set aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the Kodiak pancake mix, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined. Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the unsweetened almond milk with 1 Tbsp lemon juice. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, in a separate medium size mixing bowl, combine light butter, unsweetened applesauce, lemon zest, and sweetener and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and continue to mix until well combined. Then whisk in the unsweetened almond milk lemon juice mixture. 
  • Gradually add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Whisk until JUST combined. NOTE: It’s totally normal to have clumpy batter. In fact, that is what you want. Otherwise, if you over-mix the texture of the cake will be very dense. 
  • Fold the flour covered blueberries into the batter, until fully combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared 9×9 inch pan.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. If you’re using a 9×13 dish, it may only need to bake 25-28 minutes. Use a toothpick to check for doneness, if needed. 
  • Remove from oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle sugar crystals ( course sugar) over the top of the cooled cake, if desired. 
  • Cut and serve into 12 even servings.
