Spiced Zucchini and Apple Loaf

Bread is something I am eating more and more of. I have never been a massive bread person, we weren't really raised on it and it has always seemed like more of a weekend thing with more time and a bigger breakfast cook up. However since getting back into Crossfit, my body is needing more food for growth, repair and recovery. So having a heartier breakfast is important for me so my hunger stays under control the remainder of the day. 

This loaf is delicious with a spread of peanut butter or tahini. Plus it freezers really well.

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
