2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener
2 eggs, at room temperature (or flax egg**)
2 tbsp coconut oil or grass fed butter, at room temperature
2 1/4 cups Almond flour
1 tsp baking powder

  2. Combine sugar and butter or oil in mixing bowl.  Blend together with electric mixer.  Add bananas and blend together.   Add eggs and vanilla.
  3.  In separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add flour mixture to wet ingredients, then stir in zucchini, walnuts and chocolate chips if using.
  4. Grease a large bread pan.  Add mixture and place in oven for 50 minutes.  Remove from oven after about 30 minutes and place foil on top.  Continue to bake for remaining 20 minutes.

*Make sure you squeeze out as much water from the zucchini as possible or it will not cook through.
