Jalapeno Zucchini Bites
Snacking is a favorite pastime of mine. While balanced meals throughout the day are extremely important, I couldn’t imagine getting through the day without snacks. Do you share the same sentiments? It can get tricky when it comes to maintaining a healthy snacking “diet” during sporting games and events. These Jalapeno Zucchini Bites are the perfect nutritious finger food for all fans and perfect party starter.
Zucchini is both versatile and healthy, so its only right they are given the royal “spicy” treatment in this recipe. Roasted jalapeno peppers and ground green Hatch Chile peppers create a delicious spice that brings a flavorful depth to each bite. This recipe uses a no-carb faux flour mix [recipe included below] that is a combination of finely ground almonds, oats and coconut. This simple mix has a pleasant flavor, seems to respond to baking powder, but will also bake firm without it. Like real flour, the final texture will vary proportionally to the amount of water used with this mix in any given recipe.
Dip these south of the border bite-size treats in Melissa’s Hatch Salsa for even a tastier kick! Made with authentic Hatch Chiles from the Mesilla Valley in New Mexico. Melissa’s Hatch Salsa adds wonderful flavor and moderate heat when used in a variety of recipes.
