Zucchini and Olive Bread


This Zucchini and Olive Bread is an adaptation of Sarah Wilson’s Paleo Inside Out Bread. You can find the original recipe here. I’ve omitted ingredients according to what myself and my DD can tolerate. Even so the almond meal is a little too much for us so next time I will substitute coconut flour. It’s a great bread to toast and have with soup. I served it with my Cajun Spiced Sweet Potato Soup on one of those really cold winter nights we have had recently. I have abandoned dairy from my diet (again) and so used nutritional yeast flakes in this recipe. If you are not dairy intolerant you could use 1/2 cup of grated cheese.

A good alternative to gluten free flour breads. This bread is light but holds together well and toasts up beautifully. Great accompaniment to soup or as a toasted sandwich.
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 1½ cups almond meal
  • ¾ cups arrowroot
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 5 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • ⅓ cup pitted olives, halved (optional)
  • ¾ cup grated zucchini
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes**
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the almond meal, arrowroot, salt and bicarbonate of soda.
  3. In a separate bowl and using a fork, whisk the eggs lightly with the apple cider vinegar.
  4. Add the parsley, olives, zucchini, and nutritional yeast flakes then add the egg mix to the dry ingredients.
  5. Mix well to combine, then pour the dough into the prepared loaf tin and sprinkle with pepitas.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top starts turning golden and a skewer comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool for five minutes before slicing.
  8. Freeze leftover slices between sheets of baking paper in a ziplock bag.
** Nutritional Yeast flakes are a great source of B vitamins and are both vegan and gluten free. It has a cheesy flavour and can be found in most good health food stores and some supermarkets.
