ZUCCHINI BREAD 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F 

  • Mix together the chia seeds and the yogurt and set aside to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid

  • Line a small loaf pan (8” x 4”) with parchment paper or grease it with coconut oil and set aside. 

  • Shred the zucchini finely (either with a cheese grater or a food processor.) You need to get the liquid out of the zucchini - don’t skip this step! Place on paper towels or in a colander lined with paper towels and salt it lightly. Let sit. Later you will squeeze it out like you are squeezing out a wet sponge.

  • Mix the eggs, sweetener, mashed banana, coconut oil, and yogurt/chia in a large bowl.

  • Mix in the dry ingredients. 

  • Add the squeezed, shredded zucchini and the apple cider vinegar. 

  • Stir until the batter is smooth.

  • If the batter is very dry, you can add a little water flavored with a few cloves. 

  • Taste and adjust the spices accordingly. (I often double cinnamon and nutmeg!) 

  • Stir in the optional nuts.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans and bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
