Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coarsely shred zucchini (you should have about 2 cups shredded zucchini). Place shredded zucchini in a sieve set over a bowl. Sprinkle the salt over zucchini; toss to combine. Let stand for 1 hour to drain. Place zucchini between three layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth or two or three layers of paper towels; squeeze out excess liquid. Set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray; set aside.

  • In a large bowl whisk together gluten-free oat flour, gluten-free all-purpose flour, almond flour, sugar, whey protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. In another large bowl whisk together yogurt and shredded zucchini. Add eggs and almond milk; stir until combined. Add flour mixture to zucchini mixture; stir until well mixed. Stir in walnuts.

  • Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake for 65 to 75 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached.

  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a thin metal spatula around the sides; turn out onto the wire rack. Cool completely before slicing.
