  • 2 cups (250 g) chopped zucchini
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) egg substitute or 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar or other sweetener, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 1/2 cups (180 g) whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  2. Select Variable 1.
