The nutritionist's advice:

Nuts, almonds, and hazelnuts are nuts that provide unsaturated fatty acids. For example, nuts provide a good amount of omega 3. To make this cake, prefer wholemeal flour that will slow down the passage of sugars into the bloodstream.
This cake can also be eaten for breakfast or as a snack.
