paleo zucchini breadThis blog entry is dedicated to our awesome friends out in L.A. — Martha and Keegan. They sent us a fun new recipe book a few weeks ago and it’s inspired me to get back into the kitchen! This zucchini bread recipe is pretty easy to whip up you just need the correct ingredients (like almond flour not meal) and make sure your zucchini doesn’t have a lot of water in it. To get the water out the zucchini, I took a kitchen towel and press on the shredded zucchini to extract water. I’m not sure if this is correct, but it worked for me. What I LOVE the most about this recipe (besides how yummy is it) is that you use to small loaf pans — so it’s nice to freeze a mini loaf for future snacks. Enjoy!
