Flourless Cheesy Zucchini Bread…Yes Please!

Pinterest

Dear Diary,

Last night we all went out for dinner and I was lamenting to Valorie, that it was just one of those days…Val, never one to miss a comedic opportunity, broke out into the popular Monica song, “Don’t Take it Personal,” a la 1995.  I had forgotten that little ditty, but it couldn’t be more perfect in describing my mood this week. During times like these, I crave comfort food of the worst kind, namely deep dish pizza (You can take the gal out of Chicago, but you can’t take the Chicago out of the gal). But with our upcoming weekend trip to Laguna, I didn’t want to completely throw all my early morning workouts to the wind. So I decided to meet my craving halfway with cheesy flourless zucchini bread! It was definitely the right call…If you are in need of some YOU time, might I suggest this paired with a good rom-com!

Here’s what you need:

–          2 eggs

–          ½ cup low fat mozzarella cheese

–          2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

–          5 cups of shredded zucchini

–          1 tsp of garlic powder

–          Shake of salt and pepper

–          Fresh basil

–          Olive oil spray

First you need to shred the zucchini, I used this handy, “as seen on TV,” tool. I, also used it to make zoodles for my pasta sauce.  Then, using a knife I cut the zucchini into smaller pieces. If you use a food processor to shred the zucchini, you will need to squeeze out some of the water the zucchini contains. It’s really easy. Just wrap the shredded zucchini in a paper towel and squeeze over a bowl. After a couple hearty squeezes, the zucchini will be good to go.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Next, scramble the two eggs, add the zucchini, cheese, yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Combine all the ingredients together with your hands. Making sure to thoroughly coat the zucchini with the mixture. Using spray olive oil, lightly coat a large baking sheet or circular pan. Shape the mixture in the pan, as you see fit.  Then bake for about  25 – 30 minutes, until the cheese is browned.

It’s great by itself, topped with some fresh basil or use pasta sauce as a dipping sauce. Serve warm and enjoy immediately… It reminds me of Pizza Hut’s cheese breadsticks, which is perfect for one of those days…
