So I just discovered this new blog ~> Living Healthy With Chocolate <~ naturally this is going to be my new go to for chocolate recipes. I have always loved chocolate, always will. This recipe was a little piece of home too because my mom used to often make chocolate zucchini cake.
I decided to this version.
You will need:
- 1½ cups almond flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking soda
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup zucchini, finely grated
- 1 large egg at room temperature
- ¼ cup greek plain yogurt
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoon raw honey
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup pecans, chopped
- ½ cup chocolate chips
mix the almond flour with baking soda, cacao powder, ground cinnamon and salt
You can use a box grater to grate up the zucchini. I rested mine on some paper towel to absorbed excess moisture but I didn’t squeeze it or anything.
In a separate bowl beat the egg then mix in yogurt, coconut oil, vanilla, raw honey and apple cider vinegar. Make sure all is well combined. Then stir in the grated zucchini.
Add chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
gently mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Do not over mix batter. pour into a loaf pan and bake at 350°F until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 35 minutes
YUM! Look how gooey and delicious and chocolatey it looks!!
