Gluten AND Sugar Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I have always enjoyed zucchini bread but never thought to make my own until I worked at the farmers’ market the past two weeks and had so much zucchini I had to think of some different ways to prepare it. I also have been trying to eat less sugar and gluten, so I came up with a good sugar free, gluten-free recipe to use up my zucchini and get my sweet fix in at the same time. I had some almond flour in the pantry and just a tad bit of maple syrup left, so I began to create this rich moist chocolaty zucchini treat using my favorite cocoa powder (Viva- My Ancient Mayan Superfood!).

Gluten Free AND Sugar Free Cocoa Zucchini Bread Cake

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4).
  2. Oil the bottom and sides a bread loaf pan and then lightly dust it with almond flour.
  3. Add the almond flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt to a food processor and pulse to blend the ingredients.
  4. Add the eggs, butter/oil, maple syrup, vanilla, almond extract, and grated zucchini to the food processor and pulse a few times to blend the ingredients.
  5. Add the batter to the loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes (testing just before with a cake tester to see if comes out clean).
  6. Cool for about 30 minutes and transfer before slicing.
  7. Store covered at room temperature for a few days, or refrigerated for a few weeks.

I was short on maple syrup, so I used half unsweetened applesauce and turned out great!IMG_0792IMG_0794IMG_0801IMG_0828
