Grain Free Courgette & Walnut Bread
April 23, 2014 | Makes 1 Loaf
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey
- 1/4 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (60ml)
- 1 Large Courgette (or 2 small)
- 3 Cups of Ground Almonds (360g)
- 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1/2 Cup of Walnuts, Roughly Chopped (75g)
My Paleo Cranberry & Pecan Bread was such a hit last week, I decided to put up another bread recipe sooner than I had planned. I saw courgette bread mentioned somewhere recently and remember having it years ago and loving it, so I just tweaked my usual grain free bread recipe to come up with this. It’s lovely and moist and is delicious in a sweet or savoury way-with the subtle hint of cinnamon and the crunch of the walnuts. It’s great toasted with you’re favourite eggs or as a sweet treat with some jam!
Add the eggs, honey and coconut oil into a large bowl and mix.
Grate the courgette and then add it into the egg mixture and mix.
In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Then mix them into to the egg and courgette.
Roughly chop the walnuts and add them to the mixture.
Line a bread tin with parchment paper and pour the mixture in. I decorated the top with a line of whole walnuts. Bake at 180’C for about 40 minutes.
Take out and serve, hot, cold or toasted.
