So, I’ve got this garden and it’s literally giving birth to multiple zucchinis a day that it’s so hard to keep up with them! Not that I don’t love them or anything crazy. Just stop growing!
Zucchinis or not, I’ve been giving them away to friends, neighbors and eating them on almost a daily basis. They are super good for you. Rich in fiber, very low glycemic load, and fill of potassium and vitamin A and vitamin C.
And you can do anything to it. Eat it raw, grill it, bake it, sauté it, or add them to your baked goods which is what I’ve been doing lately. I’ve been adding so much zucchini in my oats for breakfast. Keeps me filled for the rest of the morning!
My awesome neighbors invited us over for a 4th of July BBQ and I made this Paleomg’s recipe for chocolate zucchini bread and added my own dark chocolate syrup to drizzle over it.
It stirred up the idea to do a protein mug cake. I love how moist and delicious it is. Not super sweet but super easy to make!
Just gather up these ingredients below. Mix the dry in a separate bowl before adding in the wet with the zucchini. It should be a green dough consistency. Don’t let the color freak you out, it’s from the greens in the Vega powder! Pour mix into a greased mug or soufflé dish (really, whatever you have on hand will work). Microwave for 2 minutes and you have your DELISH moist mug cake. Sit back and share this with your partner or not!
