Almond Meal Paleo Bread (with Zucchini)


whisk away!

Last year around this time, I was a self-declared kitchen disaster…

My limited cooking ability only extended to 2 minute noodles and the only pancakes I knew how to make were the instant ones in the shaker plastic containers. Hell, I even managed to burn my fried rice (and I’m Asian)!

With that introduction, I proudly present to you my masterpiece- Paleo Bread made from almond meal and zucchini.

Remember how I mentioned that I’ve been collecting heaps of Paleo recipes?

This one is from Running to the kitchen, but I’ve modified the ingredients to take out the added sugar (no banana, no maple syrup). Still, the almond meal makes the bread sweeter than normal grain, so I’ve been enjoying my mini-loaf with peanut butter or crushed berries.

So easy-peasy to make too- I blended everything with my hand held blender in the mixer attachment!

  6. Pour batter into loaf pans.
  7. Bake for 32-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. Hi, sorry it took me so long to get back to you- I should have mentioned that sometimes the zucchini peel can be bitter, so perhaps peel them before mixing? I’ve made these a few times and haven’t had an issue. I’ll try again in the next few weeks and let you know how I go, but thank you for the feedback x

    This recipe without the bananas and maple syrup didn’t turn out for me at all! I just made it. It’s too salty and tastes pretty bad!
