Apple Zucchini Snack Cake

     Are you looking for something to feed your family (or yourself), for a healthy breakfast or satisfying snack, and feel good about?  Whelp, I have an idea.  This recipe is filled with non processed ingredients, you will grow more vital with each bite.  This is not a overly sweet Cake, so feel free to increase the Bananas or Apples if you are looking for that.  But I will tell you, as I’ve been off sugar, everything is much sweeter, and I find this cake very satisfying.  Each of the 12 pieces are only 168 calories, 21.6g carbs, 3.9g fiber, 17.7g net carbs, 6g protein and 5.6g fat.  Such wonderful macros, it leaves room for 2 pieces!!!😉

Ingredients for 12 servings~

1 large (8 or 9oz) Zucchini

3 extra large ripe mashed Bananas (add another for extra sweetness)

2 large Eggs

1/2 cup/4oz unsweetened Applesauce (feel free to make your own) 

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Dash Cinnamon

Dash Vanilla

1/2 cup ground Flax Seed

3 cups Oats

8oz chopped Apple (I use Envy, Fuji, Cosmic Crisp or Honeycrisp~increase amount for more sweetness)

1/4 cup chopped Walnuts

     Grate Zucchini into dish cloth, and squeeze out excess liquid, set aside to rest and drain in dish cloth.  Meanwhile, add Bananas to large mixing bowl and beat til smooth, incorporating Eggs and Applesauce, then Zucchini, as well as Baking Powder, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Flax Seed, Oats and Apple.  Pour into parchment lined 9X13, garnish with Walnuts, and bake at 375 for 35 minutes, remove and cool.  Enjoy 😊
