This delish sweet Paleo Choc Chia Zucchini Bread is from the lovely Alyse Co-cliff from An Apple A Day Nutrition!
“This loaf would have to be my most popular. It uses zucchini instead of flour and is gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free AKA Paleo! It’s incredibly moist and full of magnesium rich chocolaty goodness. It also contains the nutritious chia seed, for added fibre and omega 3’s. Due to the fact that his recipe doesn’t contain any raising agents, it does remain relatively flat however, this does not affect the delicious flavour!” Alyse Co-cliff.
