A 5'3 Perspective

Grain and Dairy Free Healthy Zucchini Bread

1 Comment

By now you probably know me well enough to understand two things – one, I like to turn unhealthy desserts into healthy ones, and two, I love adding veggies to dessert recipes. The zucchini bread satisfies both criteria and will trick even the most unhealthy eater into thinking they are indulging – if you decide to share.

Grain and Dairy Free Healthy Zucchini BreadGrain and Dairy Free Healthy Zucchini BreadIngredients

1 medium zucchini, shredded
6 eggs
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or make your own using ginger, cloves and nutmeg)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut flour

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Using a food processor with the grater blade or a cheese grater, shred the zucchini – do not remove the skin. In a large bowl combine all wet ingredients (zucchini, eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract) until well mix. Next add the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Pour the batter into a well greased loaf pan [I use coconut oil to grease]. Bake for 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Easy peasy right?

Happy baking everyone!
