Gluten-Free Zucchini Walnut Bread

SweatTheStyle_Zucchini Bread_ingredients The all-star gluten-free seed in this recipe is buckwheat (buckwheat is a seed!) and is loaded with anti-inflammatory vitamins and minerals, easily digestible proteins and fiber for a healthy heart and intestines. The addition of the zucchini boosts your daily recommended intake of vegetables while the walnuts and flax provide a nutty crunch while bursting with omega-3 fatty acids necessary for healthy skin and brain. Going gluten-free doesn’t always mean compromising taste. This bread is a prime example! Top with your favorites like almond butter, mashed avocado or coconut oil and prepare to be deliciously amazed.
