Sweet Potato Zucchini Bread

Introducing the healthiest zucchini bread ever: it’s the perfect breakfast to serve when you’ve got house guests (or are just sick of the same old everyday Greek yogurt).

The grain-free, Paleo-approved recipe was created by Solano Nolfo, NLC, a holistic health coach and baker who’s a graduate of The Nutrition School and is also certified by The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

While whole grains can definitely be one part of a healthy, balanced diet, this recipe is grain-free, so if you’re skipping gluten due to Celiac disease or any other reason, you’re in the clear. Nolfo uses almond, coconut, and cassava flours, which are way more nutritious than white flour.
