Part of the problem with our shift towards real foods is the fact that my children in general hate vegetables. For the first few days THE HUSBAND added a few handfuls of spinach to the boys smoothies in the mornings they would not drink them. Not because you could taste it but because they knew there was “green stuff’ in it.
I had some zucchini that was about to go bad so I decided to attempt Whole Wheat Zucchini bread. I found this recipe on the 100 Day of Real Food blog. It uses whole wheat flour and honey as sweetener.
I had a lot of help in the beginning, but as soon as everyone saw “green stuff” they were out. Only my one year old was faithful to “help” me the entire time.
It smelled delicious while baking and once it is done nothing looks too green. So my boys decided to try it. The verdict= they loved it! They all asked for more. This recipe was officially filed away in my recipe box next to the Maple Pecan Breakfast Cookies and will be added to the breakfast rotation around here.
Sorry I don’t have a picture of the finished product. I forgot to snap one when it was first done and now it is all gone!
Let me know if you try it and what you think.
