Chocolate Zucchini Bread

chocolate zucchini bread

As I maybe have already mentioned I am not a kind of low carb girl. But as someone who is really interested in all kind food I have heard of those low carb flours which are made from nuts like (de-oiled) almond or coconut flour. And as a food blogger who is naturally curious and always happy to try out new things I have to buy some (okay it is a little more than “some”… actuatally I bought 1 kg!!!) coconut flour. Amittedly I have already heard baking with coconut flour requires a lot liquids. But I was still surprised how much liquids coconut flour absorbs. So if you experiment with coconut flour it’s can be very recommandable to allow the batter to rest for about 5-10 minutes, then you can see if your batter needs more liquid or not (the batter should have the same texture as you know from “normal” batter).

Please don’t worry about this recipe, which seems to have a lot of wet ingredients like apple sauce and zucchini (which contains naturally much water). The chocolate zucchini bread need that to turn out that wonderfully moist and fudgy. I served the the zucchini bread with plenty of fruits, plain yoghurt and a sauce what is made of overnight soaked dates, almond butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!!!

      Coconut flour is completely different to grain flour. But yeah, you should give it a try – there are so many benefits of coconut flour.
      Have a lovely day my dear :-*
