{Almost} Paleo Rhubarb Zucchini Bread

I stood looking in my fridge yesterday and saw the zucchini from my mom’s garden and the rhubarb from our garden and made a mental note to make zucchini bread and rhubarb bread before they went bad.  
And then… I thought, “OR, I could make zucchini rhubarb bread!”
Tonight, I took my first headfirst dive into creating my own {almost} Paleo recipe from scratch!
You can read more about Paleo here.
It turned our surprisingly pretty well (but be warned that it’s not all that sweet.  I topped the warm bread slices with creamed honey and it was perfect!).  Like I said, this is almost Paleo… But not quite.  I’ve always read that you should always mix about 50/50 almond flour with regular flour or it just won’t bake right, so I went ahead with that notion instead of chancing screwing it up.  Also, I’m not sure where Paleo stands on things like baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, agave syrup and honey.
Rhubarb Zucchini Bread
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (I left the peel on mine)
  • 2 cups diced rhubarb
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup regular (or wheat) flour
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/6 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • I just do what I always do and throw everything in a bowl together and just mix it all together.  It all gets mixed together in the end any way! 😉
  • I used two different sized baking pans: 1.) mini bread loaf pan 2.) regular bread loaf pan.
  • For the mini, I baked for about 18 minutes.
  • For the regular, I baked for approx 30 min (sorry I don’t know the actual time because I’m terrible at those things and always just check the oven to see if it’s done yet! … don’t you love my detailed instructions?! *sarcasm*)  

     If it’s not sweet enough for your taste (it wasn’t quite enough for me, but I’m a believer that bread is a dessert! ;)), smear a little creamed honey on the top and … devour. 🙂
    (We get ours at Trader Joe’s – SO good!)
