Last week I published a very French recipe, a savory zucchini bread: Zucchini and tuna bread (Coconut free, AIP, paleo). This was pretty new to many of my international readers, more used to sweet zucchini breads recipes. So this week, will be the exact opposite of last week. Those who were intrigued by my zucchini and tuna bread recipe won’t be impressed by this carob zucchini bread, whereas, French people will be intrigued by this sweet zucchini bread. 😂
I love this! That’s the beauty of culture differences!! So much, that, as a French girl, I literally had to do my research on sweet zucchini breads because I've never tried one before creating this recipe. So I really hope that it will be up to your expectations, as I have absolutely no comparison.
Only thing I can tell you, is that I think this recipe is delicious (otherwise, I wouldn’t have published it 😅). But I can’t tell you if it tastes like the real thing. So if you are a “connaisseur” of sweet zucchini breads do not hesitate to let me know what you think about this recipe.
- zucchini : do not peel the zucchini before grating (leave the skin on). And do not drain out, or squeeze out any of the liquid from the zucchini as you will need all the moisture from the zucchini to make the dough.
- tigernut flour This recipe uses tigernut flour (or almond flour for those who are not on AIP). If you are on AIP and still in the elimination phase, unfortunately there are no possible substitution for the tigernut flour. Why? Because all the other AIP compliant flours have very different texture and they all need their own amount of liquid. So it is not possible to replace the tigernut flour with another flour without altering the entire recipe.
- arrowroot it is a starch. If you are not cassava intolerant, you can substitute it with tapioca starch (also called tapioca flour). Other possible substitutions, only if you are not on AIP nor Paleo diets: you can use potato starch or corn starch instead of arrowroot.
- carob powder
- baking soda
- maple syrup. If you want to reduce the maple syrup quantity in this recipe, I suggest replacing it by same quantity of oil, water or coconut milk.
- apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
- extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil)
- vanilla extract
Can I make muffins instead of a loaf / bread?
Yes! You can make this, either as a loaf or muffins. Just follow the instructions in the recipe card.
