Serves: 12

Ingredients:

Dry

1½ cups almond meal

¾ oats, ground to form flour

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Pinch of salt and pepper

5 tablespoons chia seeds*

2 tablespoons pepitas

Wet

220mL water

1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 large (200g) zucchini, grated with extra moisture strained

1 large (200g) carrot, grated

½ cup MyLife Biocheese® Original, grated

 

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C / 325°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the chia seeds with water and stir lightly. Set aside to bind for approximately 5 minutes (or until gelatinous).
  4. Once set, mix all wet ingredients until well combined before introducing this mixture into the dry ingredients.
  5. Place into a lined baking tin**, flattening the top surface progressively.  
  6. Evenly distribute the pepitas on the surface of the mixture, lightly patting them down. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until golden-brown.

 

*Chia seeds can be substituted with ground flaxseeds as a vegan-leavening alternative.

**Can be interchanged with a muffin tin.
