Ingredients

2 eggs

1 1/3 cup sugar-free sweetener of your choice

6 T grapeseed oil or canola oil

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 1/2 cups grated zucchini

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F/175C. (I used a toaster oven so it didn’t heat up the house.)Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray.In a small bowl, combine the eggs, sweetener of your choice, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and buttermilk.Stir in the grated zucchini.In a slightly larger bowl, mix together the white whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, and salt.Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just enough to combine.Then fold in chopped walnuts or pecans.Scrape the batter into loaf pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. (I also used the rubber scraper to spread the batter to make the top of the loaf even.)Bake 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Let bread cool in the pan, then slice and serve.
