- This is one of my favorite dishes for so many reasons, first of all, it's got two of my favorite ingredients, chocolate and almond butter, and it's so stinking easy. It's what a like to call a dump and stir recipe. Dump, stir, bake, and you're done. You want, like, one medium zucchini, or about a cup of grated zucchini. Also, this dish is technically paleo, so for those of you who care, that's what this is. Mostly it's delicious. First, butter your baking dish. Okay, so we've got our grated zucchini, now we dump. That doesn't sound right to say in the kitchen when you're doing a recipe, but it's the truth. So we're gonna put our zucchini in there, and our almond butter, to think I didn't even know almond butter existed until I was an adult. What? Mm. And the maple syrup. Ohh, that looks so pretty. And vanilla, and egg. So mix that up. This is a little easier to mix altogether when you do it in a bowl, but I like to do the least number of dishes as possible when I'm cooking. So I'm just mixing it together in the very dish it will be baked in. So now I'm going to put in the baking soda, cinnamon, salt. And gonna go for about a half a teaspoon of nutmeg. I'm just gonna kind of eye ball this. This, as you can see, is a whole nutmeg, you can get it already finely ground, just in a jar at the store like you would get other spices, but I think that nutmeg is one of the spices that really makes a difference when you get it fresh, and it's super easy to grind up, just take the sharp point of a knife, and work a little magic at one end. There's nothing like fresh nutmeg. Then we're gonna give it another good stir to make sure all of the spices, all that baking soda is fully incorporated. And now we're gonna fold in the chocolate chips. And you can really decided how many chocolate chips you want to add. I'm doing half a cup, because I love chocolate chips. But if you want to sparingly add them, maybe a 1/4 cup is good for you. Or if you really love chocolate chips, add a full cup, And now we take it to the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. The hardest part of this recipe is now waiting for it to cool enough so that you don't burn your mouth, 'cause otherwise I would just. Patience. Do-do-do-do-do-do-do. These are super delicious warm out of the oven, or refrigerated, and they're really good chilled too. They've become a favorite snack of mine, because they're also full of all of these things that fuel you as you go on with your day, and don't like, drag you down, you know? Like, yeah! Well, it's been a successful day in the kitchen, ladies and gentlemen. The thing with these is, I don't even know if they're bars, they're cakes, it's cakey bar. All I know is that they're delicious. As always guys, keep it quirky. Hot dang. Mama like.
