Recipe: GF Herbed Zucchini Breakfast Bars (Paleo, GAPS, SCD) post image

When you are gluten-free or grain-free it’s a challenge to find a healthy bread substitute that’s easy to make. There are lots of gluten-free breads on the market, but many are made with very starchy substitutes that have not been properly prepared. I do not like most gluten-free breads or baked goods for this reason.

While it’s fun to make grain free waffles on a lazy Sunday, when you are rushed during the week, these grain-free breakfast bars are perfect. They are great with eggs, or can stand alone, loaded with butter. You can make them ahead, wrap them in individual portions and refrigerate or freeze them. They are loaded with nutrition, simple and satisfying!

I make 2 batches of these at a time and individually wrap them and freeze them. I keep a few defrosted in the refrigerator and in the morning, I just take one out and eat with eggs for breakfast.

Here is a simple and nutritious bread substitute that is made with whole ingredients that will add nutrition, not take it away. You can slice the bar lengthwise and toast – though toasting is not necessary. Add lots of butter and eat with eggs or other protein for a satisfying meal!

The zucchini adds moisture to the bread, yet does not add an overwhelming flavor. The herbs add the flavor. Feel free to use any herbs you enjoy – and remember, everything tastes better with butter or ghee!
