Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

 

It’s time to start using up the goodies from your garden….or if you’re like me, the excess veggies donated from other people’s gardens!

This paleo and celiac-friendly zucchini bread is another stolen and slightly altered recipe from the wonderful Ellie at Healthy Training. I found myself grabbing chunks of it for an on-the-go breakfast and the 2 loaves I made had disappeared in less than 3 days. It’s sweet enough to feel like dessert without any added processed sugars.

    Hi, I was just wondering, since I have a nut allergy, do you think it would be possible to substitute the almond flour with rice flour instead, or do you think it would change the consistency of the mix?

    • Hi there! If you’re not allergic, you could try coconut flour, but you’ll need to play around a bit and will likely have to add some water to keep it moist. I have also heard great things about sunflower seed flour but have never tried it myself. Let me know how it turns out!
