Coconut Flour Zucchini Banana Protein Bread (Vegan, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar Free)

Friday, June 12, 2015

As some of you might have already known that I have been working as an internship recently. Everyday after work, I would be busy in the kitchen preparing my lunch for the other day. Consequently, I have been exploring many different recipes and new lunch ideas that I can't wait to share with all of you. Last week, I made a coconut flour zucchini banana protein bread (they look more like protein bars in fact) with Sun Warrior's Raw Vegan Protein powder added. I have been using Sun Warrior's protein powder for quite a long while during my marathon training and found it one of the best one I've tried so far. What's more, it's absolutely a perfect way to sneak in some protein into your meals when you are busy.

This recipe makes one loaf, and is adapted from Casey's Wholesome Kitchen.


Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut flour
1 small zucchini, shredded
1 ripe banana, mashed
10 soaked, pitted dates
3 chia eggs (3 Tbsp of grounded chia seeds mix with 9 Tbsp water)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop of Sun Warrior's Raw Vegan Protein powder
1 tsp psyllium husk powder
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 tsp salt


Directions:


  1. Preheat your oven to180°C
  2. Line a rectangular bread pan with parchment
  3. Soak the pitted dates in water for about 30 minutes until soft
  4. Make the chia eggs by adding 3 tbsp ground chia seeds with 9 tbsp water for about 10 minutes until gelled
  5. In a large bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husk powder, protein powder, cinnamon and salt and whisk until combined
  6. Shred your zucchini and set aside for later use
  7. Place the soaked dates together with the ripe banana in a small food processor and process until smooth. You may need to add a bit of water to help them smooth out.
  8. Add the date-banana mixture to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine.
  9. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, and mix until combined and the flour is absorbed. The dough will be very thick.
  10. Place the dough in the pan and flatten it out using a spatula
  11. Bake in the oven at 180°C for about 40-45 minutes, or until the top is browned.
  12. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  13. Slice it up and let it cool completely.
  14. Enjoy <3
