INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper (an absolute must!). Set aside.
  • Finely grate the zucchini and wrap it up in a thin kitchen towel or cheesecloth. Then wring it out until almost all liquid stops coming out and measure up 200g/7 ounces (its roughly a medium zucchini). Set aside.
  • Whisk together in a medium bowl almond flour, flaxseed meal, cocoa powder, psyllium husk, baking powder and salt. Set aside. 
  • Add sweetener and eggs to a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 3-5 minutes until airy and lighter in color. With the mixer on, add in the vanilla extract and butter.
  • Add in the dry flour mixture in two parts, alternating with the cream. Mix for 2 to 3 minutes until fully incorporated and elastic, the batter will thicken as you mix. Fold in zucchini and half of the chocolate chips (optional!). 
  • Distribute batter evenly into pan, smoothing out the top with wet fingertips or a spatula. Top off with the remaining chocolate chips (again, totally optional!).
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, covering with a lose foil dome if needed (I did at around minute 40). Just be sure that the foil isn't resting directly on the bread!
  • Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the pan before removing, and cool completely in a rack before cutting. Keep in mind that your bread will continue to cook while cooling, so for best crumb you'll want to really cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days, or freeze for about 2 months (it defrosts very well!). p.s. its also delicious lightly toasted with generous smear of (salted!) butter 😉
