Zucchini Bread (Paleo & SCD)

 Zucchini Bread
I love my new green grocer!  I used to buy my fruit and veg from the local supermarket, but I have found a green grocer that is so much cheaper!  The produce is really fresh, great quality and did I mention so much cheaper! :)  It's wonderful to be able to stock up at half the price.
Anyway, even though it's winter, this green grocer has wonderful, fresh zucchini.
This bread is DELICIOUS! It passes the husband the kids test (all not SCD/Paleo) with flying colours. :)
 It's moist, spicy and smells heavenly.

  2. I can't have bananas, would applesauce work in place of the banana?

    1. Hi Alana, I haven't tried it, but I think applesauce would work. If you try it, let us know how it goes. :)

    2. I tried both applesauce and banana. Applesauce leaves a little thinner consistancy for some reason. I made my own pure applesauce but not as good as banana. Try an extra 1 or 2 eggs in place of banana or applesauce. SHOULD WORK GOOD.

  6. By spice, do you mean cinnamon or a mixture of spices?

    1. In Australia, mixed spice is a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice.

  8. Are the dates & nuts necessary? I dont have either on hand but need to use my zucchini & ripe bananas. I think I'll give it a try!

  9. Hi again...I posted above on Sep 7/14. I am now making this recipe every week! I make muffins instead of bread, and freeze them. I find this recipe freezes beautifully and the frozen muffins make easy-to-pack snacks for school and work. I have substituted carrots for the zucchini, and even used a mixture of both and they turned out great! I've also replaced the zucchini with blueberries and raspberries (separately, not combined). For the raspberry batch, I tried making a raspberry syrup as a replacement for the honey, just by boiling down some raspberries. They tasted good, but resulted in a more fragile muffin.

  10. Thanks for this recipe, it's delicious, we use it to make muffins for breakfast. It has helped me with weight loss and managing my sensitive digestive system.

  11. Can I use potato and/or sweet potato flours instead of coconut and almond flours?

    1. Sorry, I don't know, as these flours aren't allowed on SCD or paleo. If you give it a try, I'd love to hear how it goes. :)

  14. Can the already liquid coconut oil be used instead of the one that needs to be melted?
