Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with oil and dust with almond flour.
  • Beat together the butter and Swerve in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together almond flour, whey protein powder, psyllium husk powder, salt and baking powder.
  • Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream, and ending with the flour mixture.
  • Squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini by placing it in a clean dish towel and twisting the towel to release the moisture.
  • Stir in the zucchini and pecans and transfer to the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. (Watch it for the last 20 minutes - if the top starts to get too brown tent it with foil or parchment paper.
  • Allow to sit on a wire rack for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting.

Tips & Tricks

  • This recipe is best served toasted with butter.
  • You can refrigerate it for up to a week, or freeze it up to a month. Since bread can dry out when refrigerated, I recommend slicing and freezing it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then store the slices with parchment between them.
  • Don’t skip wringing the moisture out of the zucchini. If you do, it will be close to impossible to get the loft to cook through.
  • If the bread starts to brown too much towards the end, as often happens with baked goods that have almond flour, cover it loosely with parchment paper or foil.
  • Do not attempt to slice this bread straight from the oven. It is best to let it cool thoroughly first.

Variations for This Recipe:

  • Feel free to skip the pecans. This will result a lower carb count if that is desired. (But I think they are worth the carbs!)
  • You can substitute chopped walnuts or macadamia nuts for the pecans.
  • Add in 2 teaspoons of lemon zest.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds.
