  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/4 C. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C. cacao powder
  • 1.25 C. almond flour blanched
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 C. zucchini grated
  • 1 Tbsp additional almond flour for flouring the baking dish


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and grease & lightly flour a 6x4 (small) loaf pan or baking dish with a tiny bit of almond flour.
  • In your food processor, shred the zucchini. Then lift out gently and set on a few napkins on the counter.
  • With that same food processor, combine the eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cacao powder, almond flour and baking soda and pulse briefly until well combined.
  • Lift the lid on the food processor and place the shredded zucchini inside - lock the lid back on and pulse once more very briefly until zucchini is combined - you may have to scrape around the sides.
  • Pour the batter into the greased and lightly floured mini loaf dish and place in the oven at 350 for 30-35 minutes until it no longer jiggles in the middle and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove and allow to cool completely. Run a knife around the outside of the bread and gently flip the loaf dish in your hand to turn out the bread.
  • Wrap the completely cooled loaf in plastic wrap, then place in a zippered bag and refrigerate for up to 7 days if you are not enjoying immediately.
