Zucchini Almond Bread



I use zucchini a lot during summer as this veggie is as versatile as it can get. Of course, you can make Provencal ratatouille with it but zucchini has its place in desserts as well. I am not really 'pro' hiding vegetables in desserts to make children eat healthy but it is a good way to get more greens into your diet as most of us just don't eat enough vegetables (honestly, how many veggies did you eat today?). This Zucchini Almond bread or cake is my favourite summer treat as it combines veggies (you guessed it, zucchini!) and healthy fats (nuts and grass-fed butter or ghee). It is also gluten and lactose free (if you use ghee instead of butter). After baking, let cool and store in a beeswax wrap in the fridge. The wrap on the picture is homemade, a step forward on my way to zero waste lifestyle...
