Are you looking to stay low carb but really missing bread? We feel ya. So, we created this spin off the usual zucchini bread to be a low glycemic index, high fiber, and nutrient-dense recipe that still meets your carb cravings!
Almond flour has really taken off lately, as it is a great replacement for wheat flour in almost any recipe with a 1:1 substitution. We love that almond flour is higher in protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats because it helps to improve gut health while keeping you feeling full longer. In this way, it has been shown to help with weight loss goals, lowering cholesterol levels, and managing blood sugar. Almond flour is also a great source of Vitamin E, an antioxidant that can reduce aging of cells and repair damage done throughout the years.
Coconut flour, another wheat flour substitute, is also a great source of MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) which have proven very helpful to manage conditions such as diabetes and heart disease as they promote stabilization of blood sugar as well as an improved immune system and good digestion. If you love coconut flour, we highly recommend trying our Nutty Bagels.
Zucchini is everywhere these days and here is why: it’s an incredible substitution for higher glycemic foods. Zucchini easily replaces foods such as pasta and potatoes because they are high fiber, low calorie, and zero fat, vegetables packed with nutrients such as Vitamin B6, riboflavin, folate, potassium, manganese, Vitamin C and K. If you love zucchini (or just carbs in general) and haven’t tried out zucchini hash brown or zucchini crisps yet, you absolutely must.
Also, if this recipe didn’t quite kick your carb craving, go check out our Raisin Pumpkin Spice Bread or our Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies– both of which are also made with almond flour.
