ZUC­CHINI CHIPS

½ large (75g) zuc­chini ¼ cup (90g) honey 2 tea­spoons finely grated lime rind 1 ta­ble­spoon lime juice 1 Pre­heat oven to 150°C (130°C fan-forced). Grease an 8-hole (⅔-cup/160ml) mini loaf pan; line base and long sides with bak­ing pa­per, ex­tend­ing the pa­per 3cm over edge. 2 ZUC­CHINI CHIPS Line an oven tray with bak­ing pa­per. Us­ing a man­do­line, thinly slice zuc­chini; pat dry with pa­per towel. Stir honey in a small saucepan over low heat un­til it comes to a sim­mer. Add zuc­chini; sim­mer, un­cov­ered, for 3 min­utes or un­til soft but still hold­ing its shape. Drain zuc­chini over a jug; re­serve syrup and cool slightly. Stir rind and juice into re­served syrup. Ar­range zuc­chini, in a sin­gle layer, on tray. Scrunch up slightly to make frilled edges. Bake for 15 min­utes or un­til dry, re­mov­ing out­side slices when done to pre­vent over-brown­ing. Cool. 3 In­crease oven to 180°C (160°C fan­forced). Sift flours, ginger, soda and salt into a large bowl. Re­turn husks to bowl; stir in pis­ta­chios. 4 Com­bine zuc­chini, ap­ple, su­gar, eggs, co­conut oil and vanilla in a large jug. Pour into flour mix­ture; stir un­til just com­bined. Spoon mix­ture into pan holes. 5 Bake loaves for 20 min­utes or un­til a skewer in­serted into the cen­tre comes out clean. Leave in pan for 5 min­utes, be­fore trans­fer­ring to a wire rack. Brush with the re­served honey syrup from the zuc­chini chips; cool. 6 Top cooled cakes with Zuc­chini Chips. Re­move rind from lime with a zester; sprin­kle over cakes. Serve with yo­ghurt. Un­dec­o­rated loaves suit­able to freeze. Not suit­able to mi­crowave.
