Ingredients

  • 6 Tbsp Coconut flour, sifted (37g) *
  • 6 Tbsp NeoCell Super Collagen (6 scoops)
  • 5 Tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder (26g)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 Large egg white
  • 6 Tbsp Honey
  • 5 Tbsp Natural smooth almond butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Grated zucchini, lightly packed
  • 6 Tbsp Dairy-free mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line the bottom of a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper, rubbing the sides with coconut oil.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the coconut flour, collagen, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate, large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the eggs, egg white, honey  and almond butter until smooth and combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and beat on low speed until smooth and combined.
  • Place the grated zucchini in a kitchen towel and ring out as much water as you possibly can. Really put some muscle into it, as ringing out the water is key for a great textured bread! You should have just under 1 cup zucchini, tightly packed, once you've rung out the water. 
  • Fold the zucchini, along with the chocolate chips, into the batter. Let stand for 10 minutes so the coconut flour can begin to absorb the moisture. 
  • Pour into the prepared pan, spread out evenly, and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50-55 minutes - don't over-bake! Let cool in the pan COMPLETELY before slicing.
  • DEVOUR!
