  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini (peeled first – ~1 zucchini)
  • 1 1/2 cups cashew meal (I ground up 1 1/2 cups raw cashews)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup melted ghee (I used browned butter ghee)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 12 tablespoons poppyseeds (I think the more, the better)

For the strawberry sauce

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×5 bread pan and line with parchment paper to help with easily removal.
  2. Peel and finely shred zucchini. Place in between paper towels and place on a plate on top to help pull out the excess moisture. Set aside to drain while you prepare everything else.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together cashew meal, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda and powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together ghee, honey, almond extract and eggs until combine. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture along with the zucchini and poppyseeds and mix with a spatula to combine until smooth. Fold in sliced strawberries.
  4. Pour batter into greased and lined loaf pan. Place in oven to bake for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean of the center of the bread. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
  5. While the bread bakes, place a small saucepan over medium heat and add all ingredients for the sauce. Let cook down for 10-12 minutes, until strawberries are soft. Place in a blender and blend until completely smooth. Pour sauce through a fine mesh strainer.
  6. Once bread has cooled, pour sauce on top of bread or spread it on like you would butter!
