This classic recipe is now adapted to not only be gluten and dairy free, but with the option to create it nut-free!

Utilizing Olive Oil is a great and healthy alternative that lends to the moist texture and deliciously light flavor of this bread!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup maple sugar & 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or 1/2 cup coconut sugar)

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract

  • 2 cups coarsely grated zucchini

  • 1 cup cassava flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.

    • Hemp seeds are also a great alternative.

  • Coconut or Olive Oil (if going for nut-free) and additional Cassava Flour to grease and flour your pan.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350⁰ F.

  • Grease and flour your bread loaf pan.

  • Optional: Can add a couple of scoops of Collagen Powder to the mix now to increase protein content.
