Paleo Zucchini Bread

Thanks Sarah for sending in this recipe, a healthy alternative to wonder white!

What you will need: 

  • 1 ¼ cup of blanched almond flower or you can use almond meal with a tablespoon of water
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • ½ teaspoon backing soda
  • 3 eggs separated
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (extra virgin cold pressed) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 large zucchini grated

 

How to bring it all together:

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees
  2. In a large bowl combine your almond flour, egg yolks, salt and baking soda
  3. In a separate bow lightly beat the egg whites until fluffy
  4. Add in the coconut oil and zucchini into your almond flower mixture.  If using almond meal stir until the mixture is a smooth consistency.
  5. Greased a 6.5 x 4 inch loaf pan and add mixture, you can also dust the pan with almond flour instead of using grease
  6. Place in oven for 35-40 minutes
  7. Remove and let cool for 2 hours
  8. Serve and enjoy!

 

The original recipe does not separate the eggs and uses a food processor.  However, if you don't have a food processor I suggest whipping the egg whites separately to help with the texture of the batter.

Makes 1 small loaf
