Gluten Free.
Grain Free.
Dairy Free.
Nut Free.
No Added Sugar.
Made with extra love.
What else is there to do on a snow day other than bake some healthy treats! My fiancé and I have a deal. He shovels and I bake. I think it’s a win-win. This snowstorm was named bomb-cyclone. What a name, right?! It just makes me want to stay in and cozy up with a nice cup of tea and par-take in my favorite home-y activities.
I was recently asked to come up with a recipe without grains and nuts. Allergies can make it tough to find a healthy good treat. Well, this is why this cookie was born!
So simple to make and really delicious. Each cookie has only 3g of sugar! The banana keeps it moist, as baking with coconut flour can be quite tricky. This took me a few tries, so I am hoping you will enjoy this recipe! I do!
Enjoy these cookies with a cup of coconut milk for dunking or on its own.
xx This recipe was made with lots of love. xx

Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

ChocolateZucchiniLOAFsliced

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
4 eggs
1/2 cups honey (if vegan, use maple syrup)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
