Vegan Zucchini Date Bread

June 15, 2014 2 min read

Being vegan is amazing! I have endless energy, I'm saving the world by not eating animals and I feel great. Sometimes I still crave delicious goodies such as brownies and other desserts. On a recent visit to Native Foods (a vegan restaurant) I saw they had a dessert called date zucchini cake...it gave me an idea. Why not create my own vegan zucchini bread and use dates as well instead of a ton of sugar. I looked up a recipe for zucchini bread and modified it to make it vegan, gluten free and sweetened with coconut sugar and dates instead of toxic white sugar. I used a combination of different flours because I wanted to see how the bread would be without gluten. I used oat, coconut and a little bit of gluten-free all purpose flour. Instead if eggs I used flax eggs. Haven't ever had a flax egg before? It's just 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds to 3 tbsp of water. It works great in baked goods as an egg substitute. The recipe called for 3 eggs so instead I used 3 flax eggs. The finished product was amazing, I was proud of myself. Here’s how to make my: Vegan Date Zucchini Bread Ingredients: 2 cups grated zucchini ½ cup gluten-free all purpose flour 1 cup coconut flour 1 ½ cups oat flour 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt ½ tsp baking powder 2 tsp cinnamon 1 ½ cups coconut sugar 1 cup pitted dates (cut in half) 3 flax eggs (3 tbsp ground flax and 9 tbsp water) 1 cup canola & olive oil blend 1 tbsp vanilla extract ¼ cup almond milk   Preparation Procedures:
  1. Make your flax eggs and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or more.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Grate 2 cups of zucchini (unpeeled)
  4. Mix flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl.
  5. In a separate bowl combine flax eggs, coconut sugar, canola & olive oil blend and vanilla and blend well with mixer.
  6. Add dates and blend again with mixer.
  7. Add the dry ingredients, zucchini and blend. Mixture will be extremely think and stick to mixer, add almond milk, blend well. Batter will be very think.
  8. Grease 2 loaf pans with coconut oil or olive oil and using a scoop the batter into the pans evenly spread the batter into the sides of the pan.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes to 55 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes and slice and serve. Enjoy! Photo http://paleogrubs.com/zucchini-bread-recipes
