Ingredients

  • 8 oz almond flour
  • 1 scoop protein powder unsweetened
  • 7 tbsp Truvia or other erythritol-based granulated sweetener (check conversions for proper amount to add)
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 tbsp salted butter room temperature
  • 5 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz zucchini shredded
  • 4 oz whole walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf-pan with parchment paper. 

  2. Gently wring out the shredded zucchini in paper towels or a kitchen towel until water no longer flows out when the zucchini is squeezed. Set aside. 

  3. Reserve 1 oz of walnuts. Chop the remaining 3 oz of walnuts and set aside. 

  4. Next, in a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients, except walnuts until well combined with a whisk (almond flour, protein powder, sweetener, psyllium husk, baking powder, salt and cinnamon). 

  5. Now grab a small bowl, and combine the egg, vanilla extract, and room-temperature butter. Note, if you need soft butter in a pinch, microwave it in 5-8 second intervals until it just starts to melt. 

  6. With a spatula, mix the wet ingredients into the dry until well combined. Gently fold in the zucchini and 3 oz of chopped walnuts. Pour into the parchment-lined loaf pan, and top with reserved 1 oz of whole walnuts. 

  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes. Let cool, remove from pan and slice. Give it a quick heat in the microwave with a pat of salted butter if desired.
