1 cup finely shredded zucchini (use the smallest blade on a cheese grater. It should look like a puree).
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons coconut oil, measured in melted state
1 large egg
2 t.s. honey
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
¾ cup almond flour
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or ¼ cup if you don’t like them too rich)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon sea salt
4 squares 90% chocolate cut into pieces/chunks
1. Preheat oven to 176°C | 350°F. Line a 8×8″ baking pan with baking?parchment paper, or lightly grease with oil spray. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the zucchini, butter, oil, egg, sweetener (or sugar), and vanilla until well combined. Add the peanut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; folding through slowly until just combined. The batter will be thick but shouldn’t be dry. (It depends on how much liquid your zucchini has! If too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water). Fold in half of the chocolate chunks; pour batter into prepared pan; sprinkle remaining chocolate chunks over the top.
3. Bake for 30 minutes or until the brownies spring back when gently touched. (If testing with a toothpick, they will be very moist in the centre BUT they do set and harden when removed from the oven.)
4. Allow to cool completely (about half an hour); cut into squares and chill to semi-set.
If storing at room temperature they’re best eaten within 2 days. If refrigerating, they last 3-4 days.
Today”s super easy, delicious cake in mug recipe.
2 tablespoons coconut flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 ½ tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 ½ tablespoons maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
1 tablespoon coconut milk (or almond milk)
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
optional: chocolate chips
In a small bowl whisk together coconut flour, and baking powder.
Add egg, peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut milk and vanilla and mix to combine Thoroughly.
Fill into a large mug and microwave on high for about 2 ½ minutes. Start checking at about 2 minutes. Let sit for a couple minutes before eating.
Optionally top with chocolate chips or crushed peanuts.
Here are some tips:
- Although you could prepare the batter right in the mug, to ensure even mixing, stir everything very well in a small bowl and then transfer to your mug.
- Using a straight-sided mug ensures the cake is cooked evenly. It should fit at least 12 fl.oz. (Or divide the batter into small tea cups for several small desserts.)
- Microwaves differ. These recipes all take about 2.5 minutes on high, but check at 2 minutes until you figure out your microwave’s sweet spot.
- Let the mug cakes cool for a couple minutes before you dig in. But you do want to enjoy them warm.
- Top the cakes to your hearts desire with whipped (coconut) cream, chocolate chips, nuts etc.

These crepes are very interesting taste… for me is still like sweet omelette :)). so for next time, I will try to make it little bit thinner.
For the crepes:
5 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp granulated sugar substitute (Splenda, Swerve, Ideal, etc.)
butter for frying
For the filling:
8 Tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar substitute
1 Tbsp (or more) cinnamon
1.Blend all of the crepe ingredients (except the butter) together in a blender or magic bullet until smooth. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
2.Heat butter in a nonstick pan on medium heat until sizzling. Pour enough batter into the pan to form a 6 inch crepe. Cook for about 2 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional minute. Remove and stack on a warm plate. You should end up with about 8 crepes.
3.Meanwhile, mix your sweetener and cinnamon in a small bowl or baggie until combined. Stir half of the mixture into your softened butter until smooth.
4.To serve, spread 1 Tbsp of the butter mixture onto the center of your crepe. Roll up and sprinkle with about 1 tsp of additional sweetener/cinnamon mixture.
