I was skeptical – but wanted to try a new vegetable for my first Paleo Dinner Party! Wish I wouldn’t have waited so long to give this a try!
I normally do not make breads – not even paleo breads. But this week was special. Some of my very close friends and family were embarking on their very first whole30 challenge, and I wanted them to see that even WITHOUT SUGAR there was really no food deprivation involved. So, our dinner party – which started with refreshing “mocktails” – ended with fresh baked zucchini bread. No sugar. Really! It was a hit!
I found my recipe at one of my favorite places … Stupid Easy Paleo. I cannot tell you how many great recipes I have found on this her site. Please check it out! In the meantime – I did not make many changes to her original recipe:
- 3 Organic Zucchini, shredded to make about 4 cups
- 2 teaspoons Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch or cayenne pepper
- Coconut oil for cooking
Shred zucchini in food processor. Sprinkle with salt and toss well. After a 10 minute rest, squeeze all the moisture from the zucchini until they are dry. Place in a dry bowl. Add coconut flour, egg, peppers and baking soda. Stir to combine. Melt a large spoonful of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of mixture onto the pan and flatten until you get a patty. Fill your skillet – and cook on each side 3-5 minutes until nicely browned.
Be sure to add fresh coconut oil to the skillet for your next batch!
Remove to a cooling rack so they do not get soggy.
No one will have trouble eating their veggies tonight 🙂
Wow! So Yummy! What a treat!!!
