Know your nutrients
Zucchini is full of potassium which is great for controlling blood pressure, and it is high in vitamin C, which is great for helping the lining of your blood cells to function better. Chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, chia seeds contain more Omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram. Omega-3's assist the body in decreasing inflammation, and therefore help to keep us heathy and working to our best.
1 Cup Baking Mix/GF Flour/Flour/Coconut Flour/Tapioca (whatever flour floats your boat - except rice flour in this case)
- 2 Cups Almond meal
- 1/2 TSP Salt
- 1 TSP Baking powder
- 1/2 Cup Chia seeds
- 1/3 Cup Sunflower Seeds
- 1/3 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
- 6 Eggs
- 2 TSP Apple cider vinegar
- 3 Large zucchini, grated
- 2 TBSP olives, finely chopped
Turn oven on to 160 degrees celsius and line a loaf tin or baking tray.
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl; flour, almond meal, chia seeds, baking powder, sea salt, 1/2 the pumpkin seeds and 1/2 the sunflower seeds and mix well.
In another bowl whisk the eggs lightly with a fork, add apple cider vinegar, zucchini and olives, mix well.
Combine ingredients and pour into the loaf tin/oven tray, whatever works for you! and place in the oven for 45 mins - 1 hour. Mine came out ready at 52 mins. To determine if it is ready or not just place a knife into the middle of it, if it comes out with unbaked ingredients on it then its not ready, if it comes out clean or crumbly then you are good to go!
Serve with butter, cashew butter, almond butter...butter..mmmmm.
