Paleo Courgette Loaf – Dairy and Gluten Free!

This paleo Courgette loaf brings me wonderful childhood memories. My mum’s courgette loaf would come out of the oven all gooey, sweet and delicious! 

My favourite part is that you would never know there was courgette in it, but it’s also a great addition, with the ground almonds, and naturally sweetened with coconut sugar. 

Courgette is a fantastic addition to baked goods, adding in lots of moisture and getting in a couple of servings of green veggies from your cake too. 

This loaf is delicious, and can work as a snack, for breakfast or even as a dessert. It’s a great all-round loaf to have lying around to eat for any occasion, in addition to it being free from dairy, gluten and refined sugars.

2 eggs

70g of coconut sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder
