Zucchini/courgette coconut cranberry bread

What could be better on a cold winter’s day than retreating to a warm kitchen and spending time baking  this lovely, heartwarming, healthy Zucchini/courgette coconut cranberry bread. If you want to indulge a little bit more I suggest you pop a tiny layer of almond or cashew nut butter on and serve it with a cup of steaming hot black coffee with a teaspoon of good, raw, coconut oil….guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Zucchini/courgette coconut cranberry bread

1 medium size zucchini/courgette, shredded or grated
½ cup coconut flour (you could use any other flour such as almond, quinoa or whole wheat)
1 ripe mashed banana
1 tbsp coconut oil
½ cup of coconut powder or desiccated coconut (optional)
4 vegan egg replacement (4 tbsp of ground flax seeds with 12 tbsp of water) or you can use 4 normal eggs
3 tbsp of brown rice syrup, agave or maple syrup, or any of your favourite sweetener
¼ cup cranberries
1/4 cup walnuts
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees. Shred your zucchini/courgette finely, and by using a kitchen towel squeeze all the moisture out of it.
Mix the egg, brown rice syrup and banana together in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients and zucchini, and stir until the batter is smooth.
Grease a baking tin with coconut oil or line with baking paper. Pour batter in, decorate with pecans and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Serve in slices, with a bit of almond butter.

Much love,

    Hi Heidi, how many servings is this recipe for and what is the best way to store it after? How long does it stay fresh?

      Hello Kath, with regards to servings I usually get around 12 slices out of it, but it all depends how thick you want each slice 🙂 I store it in airtight container and it lasts up to 5 days. I sometimes freeze some too 🙂 Hope this helps. Hedi xxx

    Hi Hedi, do you use the coconut oil just to grease the baking tin, or doesit go with the mix? Thanks!,
