Mmm look at that bread! Can you tell it has the most perfect texture, the perfect amount of sweetness and the most delicious zesty-almondy taste? It does!

What you probably can’t tell though is that there are hidden veggies in these gorgeous slices. Don’t lie, you’d really need a microscope to see them 👀 I’m talking about grated zucchini, of course!

Why add zucchini if you can’t taste it, you wonder? Well, its main purpose is to keep this bread so freaking moist and perfect. The fact that it makes it more nutritious and that it’s good for your happy little body is just an added bonus really.

Zucchini bread is pretty well known, but have you tried a lemon poppy seed version yet? You totally have to! It’s everything you love about, say, a lemon poppy seed muffin mixed with the perfect moist texture of a quick bread.

And did I mention that it’s not only made without refined sugar (yay!) but it’s completely gluten free and paleo? Healthy treats for the win! Enjoy 🙂
