LOW CARB Zucchini Nut Bread

  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup soy protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup splenda -- (I use equivalent liquid sucralose
  • to reduce carbs)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter -- melted
  • 1 medium zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest -- or orange zest
  • vegetable oil spray

1. Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Pour into a sprayed or buttered 8" x 4" x 2" loaf pan.
2. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick tests clean. Cool the loaf laying on its side on a wire rack until it can be touched with bare hands, then invert it quickly onto a cooking rack. Using another rack, turn the bread so it is right side
up. Slice into 12 slices.

Oh dear. I am so sorry. I have adjusted the recipe now.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
