CHOCOLATE COCONUT MACADAMIA ZUCCHINI BREAD

Are you ready for another delicious bread recipe? You better be! I'm hitting you with zucchini bread this time, but with major coconut, chocolate and macadamia nut upgrades.



What I love about these types of breads that are double, or triple agents. They're great for breakfast, a snack any time of day or dessert, of course! That's right, I said breakfast.... I topped my yogurt with some pieces of it!


This bread, in its original recipe is gluten free. It can be made vegan if you use a vegan dark chocolate, use a flax or chia egg and sub out the collagen for another protein powder. You could also use all-purpose flour. I'm not personally gluten intolerant, but I A) love to experiment with different types of food, and B) I have a bunch of leftover almond and coconut flour that was gifted to me by the paleo gods (well, maybe not them).




Not only is this recipe gluten free and vegan, but it is
