I like to make a baked good every week when we have cell group at our house, and instead of just making something with all kinds of ingredients I don’t own, I try to make something tasty that will use up what I already have! So I googled around, and I had a brainstorm to make apple zucchini squares! They were a hit and not only were they delicious, but they are super healthy too! They’re not especially sweet (although there’s an obvious sweetness to them), so if you want them sweet, you might need to add more honey to the recipe.
Apple Zucchini Squares:
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground sea salt
- 1 tbsp. ground flax seed
- 1 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 cup honey or pure maple syrup
- 4 beaten eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 apple, cored and diced (you can leave the peel on!)
- 1 cup of shredded zucchini (my peel was a bit hard, so I peeled it off)
- 1/2 cup nuts (I used sliced almonds)
Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl, and the dry ingredients in another bowl. Once each bowl is mixed, add them together mixing well. You might need to add about 1/4-1/2 cup of water to thin the mixture a little bit as kamut flour absorbs quite a bit. I added about a 1/4 cup. Then, grease a 1″ deep baking sheet, and pour the mixture in. Cook at 350F for 25 minutes. I cooled mine and then made this amazing cream cheese frosting to go on top.
