Wasting food is a pet peeve of mine.
I grew up in a very humble household, where we were taught to appreciate food and eat everything that was on our plate.
We weren’t aloud to leave the table until we did. I had so many zucchini’s that I needed to do something with them!
I decided to bake a GF/GF, Dairy-Free, Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Loaf.
This bread is nut-free, too! Just skip the nut topping.
Truthfully, this is one of my favorite breads I have ever baked. It is not too sweet, and it has just enough chocolate to make you smile.
I topped my slice with a scoop of coconut yogurt, a drizzle of cinnamon maca almond butter, a sprinkle of organic unsweetened shredded coconut, organic raw cacao nibs, and a few organic raspberries.
I hope you enjoy!
Food brings the family together.
Luckily, I love to bake!
It warms the hearts of everyone around me, including my own.
There is something special about the love put into the prepping and cooking process.
I want to make sure the people I am serving enjoy it, and can feel my love through my cooking.
Here is the recipe:
2 and 1/2 cups almond flour
1 and 1/2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups organic raw cacao powder
4 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cups honey (if vegan, use maple syrup)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
