I love recipes that inspire a low-sugar lifestyle and the wonderful people at Primally Inspired have a great one for us!
Their paleo and gluten-free Grain-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread recipe will leave you wanting more, as its chocolaty richness, achieved either by using unsweetened cocoa powder or cacao powder, comes through with every bite.
As the name suggests, zucchini is another major ingredient and there are amazing benefits to using this vegetable. Not only is it low in calories, with around 19 calories in a slice, it also has a considerable amount of potassium, and is high in Vitamin C. This means that it’s good for your heart and blood cells, and with a low sodium diet, vegetables like this can also lower the risk of stroke.
Added to these two major ingredients are eggs, pitted dried dates, coconut flour, vanilla extract, your choice of butter, ghee, or refined coconut oil, cinnamon, baking soda, and if you want to have toppings, consider mini-chocolate chips, raw pumpkin seeds, and coconut chips.
Watching the video of Kelly preparing the bread and seeing it all come together makes you want to take a huge bite and keep on going.
With a texture that’s firm and most, this sugar and grain-free recipe is a great addition for your quick-bread go-tos!
