This is a fat reduced, protein enriched version of Keri Glassman's GreenTea Walnut Loaf. (www.the02diet.com) In this recipe you can substitute the gluten free flour with whole wheat flour. It is rich in antioxidants, low in fat & high in protein. The perfect start to your morning. NOTES: I often double or triple this recipe and freeze the additional loaves for future use. Gluten Free Method: Be sure to use small loaf pans (makes 3 mini loaves.) Cook time is 30 - 35 minutes. Also, you will want to make sure your flour is enhanced with dough rising aids such as Xanthum gum. If not, then add 1/2 t extra baking soda. Whole Wheat Method: You will want to make the bread in a regular loaf pan (1 loaf). Cook time is 40 - 45 minutes. EXTRA IDEAS: Use a banana or a carrot instead of zuchini Add Raisins or dried cranberries or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ABOUT THE PROTEIN POWDER: I use Aria protein powder from Trader Joe's. This seems to be a pretty balanced multi-source powder that has a very low glycemic index and not too many additives. You can use any kind of protein powder, but be sure that it does not have added sugar or fat.
