Simple Zucchini Slice – Grain Free

zucchini, healthy, grainfree, paleo, dairy free, ray peat, recipe,

I had attempted the traditional recipes of this slice from ones found online however, firstly I don’t eat flour, so I balked at that ingredient.

I attempted to make one with coconut flour even allowing for the 1/3 cup to 1 cup of normal flour ratio as coconut flour is a whole other animal, however the result was too cakey, too dry, too sweet for a savoury dish and totally not the taste for which I was aiming.

I remember from my childhood days my cousins used to make this and I remember it being the same cakey texture. Nice for cake but not for this.

So while my last blog post was about how raw cacao is not that great for you after all (read it here)   – here’s a recipe using cacao!

What??

It’s ok, I haven’t gone mad, it’s just that I wanted to clarify that you don’t necessarily have to give it up altogether.

Sorry, but raw cacao chocolate may not be such a ‘super’ food.

Boo! Devastated.

I know, right?

Unfortunately, we’ve all been sucked in (me included, big time,) by the marketers who conveniently leave out the bad bits, when singing the praises of cacao.

So while it may have some benefits, for some people the bad outweighs the good and problems arise. Let’s just say, it’s no Spirulina!

Cherry Choc Geli Slice

I have a confession to make. This recipe was supposed to be something entirely different. It was supposed to be ice-cream!

With cherry season here I had visions in my head of this deliciously creamy ice-cream with chunks of cherry and chocolate through it and a bit of a crunch of macadamia nuts – heavenly, dreamy and yum.

Super Rich Coconut Choc Fudge

I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food. But this week was truly stellar, so here is one of the recipes today and the rest will follow in the weeks to come.

I love this one because it is super easy, as is my preference but again it was just a tweak on my Chocolate Tweets mix that made it completely different, rich, decadent and just all over Oh My Goodness!
