This recipe is easy to make, doesn’t have many ingredients, requires ONE bowl, is healthy, tastes good, freezes well, is great for lunchboxes and did I mention it taste REALLY good.

Thanks to my friend Carlene for this one.

  • 1 large zucchini grated
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 1 cup cheese grated
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • salt, pepper, dried oregano to taste

Throw it ALL in a bowl, mix it, pour into a lined slice tray and bake for about half an hour on 180 degrees.

Cut into lunchbox size slices and freeze, or just devour it like we did.


Throw in some chopped bacon, ham, mushrooms…..pretty much anything your kids like to eat.
You can substitute almond meal with wholemeal spelt flour if you prefer.
You can substitute coconut milk for normal milk if you prefer.


This recipe has NUTS (almond meal) and EGGS so not suitable for classrooms with food allergies.
