You can treat yourself to a lighter version of a classic loaf with this gluten-free zucchini bread recipe. It's a little bit sweet, a little bit crunchy, and a wholly delicious way to eat your veggies.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Lightly coat 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with spray; set aside.
Grate zucchini; set aside.
Combine eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl; mix well.
Combine almond flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Set aside.
Pour egg mixture into almond flour mixture; mix until a smooth batter forms.
Gently fold in zucchini and 2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds.
Pour batter into prepared pan; top with remaining 2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. If seeds start to brown, cover with aluminum foil.
Cool for 5 minutes; turn loaf out onto cooling rack. Let cool completely before cutting into ten equal slices.
