Snickerdoodle Zucchini Cake
Cinnamon and zucchini??!! Why not?! I’m ALL about getting in those greens, and I especially love potassium packed and hydrating zucchini. I think zucchini bread is such a classic recipe, but the original recipes boast a ton of sugar, butter and next to no protein. This is my take on the classic, but with some macro minded tweaks to level up each slice and get you the most bang for your buck all the while tasting absolutely delicious! No grating zucchini required (unless you prefer to go that route), to make this recipe as easy as possible for you to whip up. As usual, just blend, bake and serve. I reserved the Iced Oatmeal Cookie drizzle for last for that subtle, yet perfect ‘icing’ touch. This cake is so good and packed with hidden veggies, even your family or littles might want to get in on the action. This version almost has a bread pudding kind of texture because of all those blended greens, giving it an incredibly dense, yet moist texture. Best served chilled, the next day once those flavors really come together. Enjoy my friends!
