2 days ago High Protein Zucchini Fudge Cookies 🍪
I know most people hide veggies in their food so they can’t taste them, but I hide veggies in my food so my family don’t look at me like “steph really, you’re eating ANOTHER zucchini?!?!”.
Whatever your agenda, the more veggies and chocolate in your diet, the better. So here’s a recipe for you 🙋🏼
▪️30g almond meal
▪️30g oat flour (oats blended into flour, or any flour of choice)
▪️50g @happywayau Choc Pea Protein powder
▪️30g dark chocolate, melted
▪️100g zucchini, grated and squeezed of excess liquid
▪️10g honey (or use agave/rice malt syrup for a vegan version!)
▪️2 tsp cacao powder
▪️1tsp baking soda
1️⃣Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
2️⃣In a large mixing bowl, add grated zucchini (drained of excess fluid! I squeezed the liquid out of mine using paper towel!), oat flour, almond meal, pea protein. baking soda and cacao powder. Stir to combine dry ingredients together.
3️⃣Pour in the honey/syrup and melted chocolate.
4️⃣Using your hands, start to work with the mixture to form a dough, adding small drops of water or extra syrup as necessary to bind the mixture with enough liquid (note: you don’t want too much otherwise it’ll become soggy!).
5️⃣Continue to squeeze and mould the dough until you can start to form it into balls
6️⃣Roll mixture into 8 even sized balls and place on baking paper. Flatten softly.
7️⃣Bake for 15-20 minutes, and allow to cool on a cooling rack to firm up before eating!
