his healthy flourless chocolate zucchini cake comes with two TESTED options because I’m an equal opportunist.


The flourless vegan and gluten-free chocolate zucchini cake, which is made up of rolled oats and contains no eggs.

**If you choose to make the flourless option, you’ll need to prepare a flax egg, but that is super easy to do. 

HOW TO MAKE A FLAX EGG 

For ONE flax egg (to replace a single egg in a recipe) combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds (flax meal) with 3 tablespoons of water. For the best texture, refrigerate it for at least 20 minutes, or until a gel-like substance has formed. 

Note- If you want to make the flourless option but don’t follow a vegan or egg-free diet, you can use 1 large egg. 

The paleo and keto chocolate zucchini cake, which uses coconut flour, coconut oil and which is completely sugar free.
