Saturday mornings.

That time when you crave a peaceful morning, with an almond milk cappuccino and a nice pastry.

The zen surrounds you like a cafe on Champs Elysees, shavasana, or a random Tuesday when you miraculously woke up 30 minutes before your alarm.

If only I still lived in a world where eating gluten, dairy and sugar-laden treats was a good idea for me. Then I could sonder into any cafe in the neighborhood, order a cappuccino and a bear claw, and nestle into my romanticly unrealistic expectations of life.

Nope.

Those days are no more.

I’d break out, get ill and generally be under the weather for a week. So I’ll skip the buttery croissants, creamy lattes and sugar cubes.

I will, however, make a homemade replacement that nourishes my body and get’s me “almost” to that Parisian cafe vibe. It will be delicious, nutritions and as always, gluten free, dairy fee, and refined sugar free. And totally Zen

Now, those Saturday mornings are for this healthy zucchini bread: a fluffy, light, bright and nutritious slice. Perfectly sized for 1 or 2. Delicately balanced with just enough natural sweetness from the dates.

Fluffy, naturally sweetened, and healthy, this healthy lemon zucchini bread is the perfect snack or breakfast for 1. Enjoy it guilt free, since hte recipe is free of gluten, dairy, grains and sugar.

Individual zucchini bread – for when you just want a little

I know when I make an entire loaf pan of bread, it’s usually too much and I either eat it to save it or end up throwing it out. Not the case with this mini zucchini twist: perfect for two to share on a lovely morning or for just me to have a couple of times.

I love individual sized baked goods. This recipe makes just a couple of servings so you can eat the entire thing and not leave any for waste. It also doesn’t tempt you to overeat.

And you get to use these cute little zucchinis.

Making it Healthy – gluten, dairy, grain and sugar free zucchini bread

This bread is completely free of grain-based flours, which reduces its glycemic load and in general makes the bread less inflammatory. It is also compliant with the autoimmune protocol, good for diabetics and low carb, low sugar.

The entire recipe is sweetened with just 4 dates. Using the full fruit allows all of the sweetness with the added benefit of the date’s natural fiber and nutritional benefit. Without refined sugar, you can enjoy this individual treat regularly without feeling guilty. 🙂

The unexpected side benefit of healthier ingredients is an easier recipe. You can throw all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and whip them together. Then just pour them into a pan and bake for 30 minutes.

The active time is about 5 minutes for this mini loaf.

Who would have thought that eating clean also saves time?
