High carb, low-fat vegan Zucchini Bread Bites are perfect for snacking on while sneaking in some extra veggies! Gluten-free and only sweetened with fruit, these bites are great for kids and adults alike. All the taste of zucchini bread with no need to turn the oven on!
Spring is here! Days are getting longer! Fresh Produce is back! The sun is shining!
Trying to focus on alllll the good stuff right now plus things that we have control of because stressing about things that are out of out control will NEVER serve us long term.
One thing we have control of? Nourishing our bodies!
And that starts with the food we make for ourselves.
You all know I love sharing easy healthy recipes with you and today’s recipe is no different. It combines some of my favorite ingredients from Bob’s Red Mill PLUS zucchini for some added veggie nutrients in your day.
I actually love adding veggies to baked goods or, in the case of these Zucchini Bread Bites, no bake snacks!
Fresh zucchini, medjool dates, raw walnuts combined with whole grain instant oats and coconut flour from Bob’s Red Mill makes these bites packed with nutrients to carry you through your day.
They also have a fun, slightly green coloring to them from the fresh zucchini. But green food seems totally appropriate to me because March is the official start of spring!
Sure the weather still isn’t totally cooperating yet, but things are starting to shift and I am counting down the days until all the trees are green, the flowers are in full bloom, and the air is warm(er). Time to welcome back some color into this dreary grey/brown winter world!
The inspiration for these bites comes from my mom’s banana zucchini bread that she used to bake all the time when I was little. She hasn’t made it in years and since I wasn’t able to find my mom’s original recipe, I decided to come up with my own Zucchini Bread Bites to replicate my childhood favorite! And thanks to Bob’s Red Mill products…it was incredibly easy.
