Keeping things simple in a not so simple world

using up not-so-good-looking produce

Leave a comment

For whatever reason, there are always those vegetables that just don’t look so good. (Some farmers and grocers sell this produce at a reduced price to you!)
So what do you do with them?

Here’s one idea:

Chocolate zucchini banana bread with chocolate chips
Gluten-free, easily vegan (dairy-free!)
Makes a large 9×13 cake sized bread and 1 8×8 sized bread or three loaves. You can freeze this!

2 large zucchini, shredded
3-4 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup cocoa powder (to make vegan-use carob powder)
1 cup butter (to make vegan/dairy free, use all coconut oil!)
1 cup sugar or 1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 cup ancient grain blend
3 cups Pamela’s Gluten-free Baking Mix
(If you are not gf or if you would don’t want to mix flours, etc. just use 3 1/2 cups of whatever flour of your choice)
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix and place in a greased baking dish (see above). Bake at 350 degrees until done in middle.
