Made with just seven wholesome ingredients, this bread not only tastes amazing but is also incredibly easy to make! In just a few steps, you'll have delicious, oven-baked bread made from a blend of shredded zucchini, almond flour, and flax meal. The added bonus of fiber, protein, and healthy fat will help boost your health while keeping you feeling full and satisfied.
To get started, begin by shredding the zucchini in a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse several times. Place the zucchini into a steamer over a pot of boiling water and steam for 1-2 minutes. Then, ring out the water using a cheesecloth or hand towel and set aside. Note: Don't skip this step! Otherwise, the toast will be soggy.
Next, whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl and add in steamed zucchini with remaining ingredients. Mix ingredients together and divide the mixture into four equal portions. Shape each portion into medium-sized bread slices and place onto a baking sheet. Transfer to the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
