Zucchini Basil Veggie Cakes

These are a great plant-based protein to add to any meal that happens to sneak in veggies AND has the most delicious, refreshing flavor with the basil. I used kaniwa, which, is actually a seed (not technically a grain) to make mine but I think you could easily sub quinoa since I know that is more commonly found. I get my organic kaniwa from Suncore Foods, you can use code PRESSSTART15 if you want to save $$ on anything from them too! (I love all their products). Another thing I love about this recipe is that it’s a great one for meal prep. These cakes are easy to make and can be served all week as a main dish or an easy pop-in-your mouth snack!

Bakery Style Choco-Chip Zucchini Muffins (paleo friendly)

I don’t have kids yet (at least not kids that are outside of my stomach and that I have to feed separately from feeding myself) but I will very soon. And from what I’ve been told, lots of kids don’t love veggies. And let’s be honest, I meet lots of adults who don’t love them either. This is the perfect recipe for those people because the veggies are completely disguised in chocolate chip muffin form. And even if you LOVE veggies, this is a great way to get even more into your day. In my opinion, there is rarely such a thing as too many veggies. Anyways, this easy muffin recipe is paleo-friendly and free of all the usual suspects (grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free) but it’s SUPER fluffy and satisfying. I hope you try them!
