A few weeks back I was craving bread... Not the flavor per say (ok yeah the flavor) but more so the texture. That soft but solid, springy (?!) beautifully decadent texture...le sigh am I right?!
Behold, a miracle was born.
-GRAIN FREE ZUCCHINI BREAD-
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
What you will need:
1 cup finely chopped (shredded) Zucchini
1/2 sunflower seed flower (I buy raw sunflower seeds and grind them in my vitamix... you can use a food processor)
1/4 cup quinoa flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp all spice
1/2 tsp sea salt
3-4 drops liquid stevia
3 tbsp honey (if you like thing sweeter add in an additional tbsp)
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
3 egg whites
Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk to remove any lumps.
In a separate bowl whisk together egg whites, stevia and vanilla until slightly frothy.
Add melted coconut oil, egg whites and honey to the dry mixture; stir until smooth.
Mix the Zucchini into the batter, until evenly distributed.
Pour the (sponge like) batter into a lightly greased or parchment lined bread tin and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
I don't know what magic of the gods transcended upon my kitchen while this bread was being created, but you guys, this bread will rock your grain free world.
For those of you who can eat real bread and want to judge the pants off this recipe, don't knock it till you try it! I batch tested this recipe on 'normal' people (those who can eat real bread) and they were none the wiser.
So go ahead, be brave and when you fall in love do try not to eat the entire loaf in one sitting!
