Sweets – recipes
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 cup rice grits or white corn meal
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 cup milk (or coconut milk)
1/2 cup olive oil
1-2 Tbsp GF flour
2 tsp baking powder (aluminum free)
5 grated organic apples
1 grated zucchini
pinch of salt
3-4 oz (100g) dark chocolate
Mix all the ingredients (except the chocolate) with a mixer: first combine the eggs, milk, sugar, and oil, then add GF flour, rice grits, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Finally, stir in the apples and zucchini.
Pour the mixture into an oiled square or rectangle pan and bake at 400F (200C) until the edges just start to turn golden, about 20 minutes. You can check if its fully cooked with a toothpick – insert a wooden toothpick into the cake, and if it comes out clean with no dough sticking to it, your cake is ready.
Melt the chocolate with a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of oil, then pour it over the hot cake. You may serve it warm or cold.
Zucchini is rich in magnesium, which helps relieve anxiety, improves sleep, aids in memory, wound healing, boosts immunity, and offers numerous other benefits.
Zucchini contains folate, also known as vitamin B-9, which plays a crucial role in supporting your metabolism, aiding in protein and nucleic acid metabolism. Proteins and nucleic acids facilitate cell growth and tissue maintenance, allowing your cells to access amino acids for tissue maintenance and synthesizing new DNA, essential for cell growth. Eating one large zucchini can boost your folate intake by 78 micrograms.
