Banish the “cheat food” mentality with this nutrient dense treat. It’s void of all allergy aggravating ingredients (dairy free, egg free, gluten free, and sugar free) so you can actually feel good after treating it.
2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water for flax egg 2 cups blanched almond flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp cinnamon 3 very ripe bananas mashed 1/2 cup @traderjoes mixed nut butter 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup shredded zucchini (ensure all the moisture is squeezed out - I let it sit with salt before squeezing) 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
Additional mix in’s: if your bananas aren’t ripe enough you can add a sweetener like 1-2 tbsp of date sugar or 1-2 tsp of granulated monk fruit for a no calorie sweetener. Top with chopped nuts, sliced banana, and more chocolate 💁🏽♀️
1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a loaf pan with parchment paper. 2 Prepare your flax egg by combining your ground flaxseed with water. Let sit for 10 minutes to form a gel. 3. Combine the dry ingredients 4. In a separate bowl, mix nut butter with your mashed bananas and flax eggs. Combine with dry mix. 5. Fold in shredded zucchini and chocolate chips. 6. Transfer batter into the pan. Top with extra chocolate chips/nuts and bake for 40-50 minutes.
