In the process of healing my autoimmune disease, I gave up grains. This was something that was really hard for me to do because I was in love with bread! One weekend when I was having the my usual debate (that slice of bread vs serious IBS issues), it occurred to me that I could use my love of baking to create the perfect Paleo loaf. And so, I used what I had on hand and added some zucchini to up the nutritional value. The result is this grain-free, nut-free, coconut-based Paleo zucchini bread recipe.
It’s dense, thick, and delicious warmed up with a tab of butter. I eat it on its own in the morning if I’m in a rush, or I’ll poach an egg and have it on top. The bread is so nutritionally dense that the smaller serving sizes are extremely filling.
QUICK AND EASY PALEO ZUCCHINI BREAD RECIPE
(This loaf makes 10 smallish pieces.)
- 6 free range eggs

- 2 cups of shredded zucchini
- 1 cup of coconut flour
- Mixing bowl
