Coconut Flour Protein Zucchini Breakfast Bars, grain free breakfast bar

Here is an exciting breakfast idea that can be make ahead of time, frozen in portions and ready to grab on the go! These Coconut Flour Protein Zucchini Breakfast Bars make a nice change!

There are lots of gluten-free breads on the market, but many taste awful.

Additionally, they are made with very starchy substitutes that have not been properly prepared.

Here’s why I do not like most gluten-free breads or baked goods.

While it’s fun to make grain free waffles or grain free french toast on a lazy Sunday, when you are rushed during the week, that is not possible.

For those busy days, these grain-free breakfast bars are perfect.

You can make them ahead, wrap them in individual portions and refrigerate or freeze them.

They are loaded with protein, 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 collagen peptides (I like this one) add the amino acids so important for gut, joint and skin healing.

The herbs add the flavor.

Feel free to use any herbs you enjoy – and remember, everything tastes better with butter or ghee!
