I'm making this post to let people know there are frauds out there, that put up blogs, pinterest and facebook pages, only to steal other blogger's recipes, remove the copyright, and post them as their own, stealing all the hard work, time, and love that goes into creating recipes. One such page on pinterest is https://www.pinterest.com/99LowCarb/low-carb-recipes/ and their facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/99LowCarb/
I've found several of my own recipes on their page, as well as other food bloggers that I know. Please, please, when you find pages like this, do not support them, confront them that you know what they are doing, spread the word to others to let them know, and report them if you see a violation. It is sad that this happens and very discouraging, and really makes me wonder if the work is worth it only for others to steal it and make money off my labor. I don't make any money off what I share. I do it as a labor of love! I get a small amount of money from ads on my blog, really not enough to keep up the blog. But others steal my recipes as well as others who have worked hard, and make them their own and use them for profit. Please don't support these types of pages if you know what they are doing.
I report them when I find them, and will post them on my blog to expose them when I become aware of them, and hopefully enough people will spread the news that they will no longer be able to continue to do what they do. It is nearly impossible to keep up with all the crooks out there who don't want to make an honest living. It's nearly impossible to protect your own work. People can steal recipes, put together their own recipe books, and who is any the wiser? I will keep posting recipes because I want to help people. I guess what others do they will do. But I will do what I can to make others aware of it also and hope all you good people out there will hold them accountable when you are able and make sure to spread the word.

This is just a very quick post, because it's my birthday. Yes, and I've been too busy enjoying the day with my honey, hiking and picnicking. We had a beautiful day! And my Heavenly Father blessed me with a gift too, perfect weather in October! 72 degrees and sunny.
This is basically the same recipe as my zucchini cake recipe here. The only thing changed is that instead of Einkorn flour I added cocoa to make it a chocolate cake. I love the way it turned out in every way. It is a very moist and chocolaty cake. The zucchini really adds the right amount of moistness, and it rises well. Most chocolate cakes I try to make don't. But I loved the way this rose. I use a silicone bundt pan, which worked really nice.
So here we go...
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
by Ginny Larsen, © ginnyslowcarbkitchen.blogspot.com, 10-10-2016
5 large eggs
1/2 cup erythritol
1/4 cup Pyure
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded zucchini -- (I cut one large zucchini in chunks and place in food processor with S blade and process.)
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cups almond flour - Honeyville
1/4 cup whey protein isolate, Isopure -- unflavored
1/4 cup golden flaxseed meal
1/4 cup oat fiber
1/4 cup cocoa
In mixing bowl, add eggs, erythritol, Pyure, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Blend together with electric mixer.
Add Zucchini, oil, almond flour, whey protein, flaxseed meal, oat fiber, and cocoa. Mix until combined.
Pour into Bundt pan, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and bake in 350F preheated oven for 1 hour to 1 1/4 hr. If knife inserted comes out clean it is done. It was done for me at 1 1/4 hour.
Cool completely on wire rack. Turn out onto plate and add a glaze if desired. I simply mix powdered sweetener such as Pyure or Swerve, and add a little bit of vanilla and enough cream to make it the right consistency.
