Paleo Zucchini Bread

Another fall recipe you don’t wanna miss is this zucchini bread! Fall has the best comfort food recipe ideas in my opinion, and most of them are quite flexible too, in case in you  like  to play with ingredients like I do.

Although this recipe is paleo, it’s not low carb, but can be. If you prefer less sugar, just use 1/4 cup of xylitol instead of honey and ta da! You have now a low carb recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup (or xylitol for low carb version)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground all spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup of grated zucchini
  • Optional: vanilla extract, cardamon, walnuts

Pre heat oven to 350F/180C. Mix all together, except the zucchini (and walnuts if you choose so), in a blender. Add the zucchini and mix gently, stirring with a spoon. If you choose to add walnuts (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup), add them at the end with the grated zucchini and stir gently. Drop the dough in a loaf tin greased with coconut oil or covered with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 1 hour, let it cool for  a bit and enjoy!

Banana Bread, Simple & Healthy

We just entered fall and the subtle lower temperature calls me for recipes like this: simple, fulfilling, comforting and packet with nutrients.

Ingredients:

  • 3 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Coconut oil to grease
  • Optional: ground cinnamon, honey, dark chocolate chips.

Pre heat oven to 350F / 180C. Mix all ingredients together in  food processor, until the batter is smooth. Grease a loaf tin or small oven proof dish with coconut oil, or cover with parchment paper. Drop the batter into the greased/covered tin and bake for approximately 35 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!

You can play around with this recipe. If the bananas are not too ripe, you may add some honey, maple syrup or xylitol to sweeten the recipe to taste. You may add dark chocolate chips to the dough, or just cover the batter already in the oven tin with a bit of honey and cinnamon to make a crust.
