Zucchini Carob Dessert Bread

Before starting my low-carb lifestyle, every Fall or at the end of Summer, I would make chocolate zucchini bread. I've been craving this bread, and my son has been asking me to make it for him. This year I decided to adapt my recipe and make a low-carb zucchini bread using carob rather than chocolate chips. For my son I made my original recipe, and will include that recipe below.

Ever since I got my set of stainless steel mixing bowls I don't know how I ever lived without them. I use them every day in the kitchen for baking, making salads, and more.

Please note that in 1/2 cup of carob chips there are 48 grams of carbohydrates. If you divided that by 4, each loaf contains 12 grams of carbohydrates.

Cook Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

  4. Add and stir the oil into the dry mixture.
  5. Beat 4 eggs together with the vanilla extract.
  6. Add this to the large mixing bowl and beat well. (You can use an electric mixer, however I find using a wooden spoon works just as well)

What is Almond Flour

Almond flour, also known as almond meal is ground almonds. You can find this at your local health food store or in many grocery stores. It is also available to purchase online at Amazon.

Add the carob and walnuts to the batter, and mix well.

Get your loaf pans ready, and spoon the batter into the pans. I use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to equally divide the batter.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.

For People Not on a Low Carb Diet

While I was baking bread today for myself I also baked 2 large loaves of Chocolate Zucchini bread for my sons.

To make the bread you see here in this picture, simply substitute the following ingredients:

1 .All purpose flour rather than the almond flour

2 .Canola oil rather than the olive oil

3. Chocolate chips instead of the carob chips

Please note that for this recipe you'll need to add 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Measurement and the rest of the ingredients not mentioned here are the exact same as the recipe for the low-carb bread.
