NEW COURGETTE BACON PIE

This is a little healthy spin on an old classic. I say courgette but we all know the real name is zucchini! However to make it different to my zucchini pie recipe already on the blog which contains sweet potato too, I call this the courgette bacon pie. Sounds tasty! Quick, simple and very nutritious – you will want to bake one this week for lunches or quick dinners. You can make it with almond meal or oats depending on your dietary requirements. I used oats and it turned out a treat.
