    I used the little cup for grounds in my daughter’s Keurig when I was visiting them in Seattle so that I could make just plain coffee. They drink all of the fancy flavors and I just wanted plain. It worked great and it is way cheaper. Have you ever thought of just buying one of those little cone filters for one cup of coffee? You put it on top of your mug and you can make just one cup of coffee. Or using a little French Press? We have a fancy coffee machine at our house (Jura) and my husband’s new hobby is roasting our own coffee beans so I am really spoiled when it comes to coffee. I tell you what, you come and bake for me and you can drink all of the coffee you want!! It’s really good coffee too. I can’t remember the last time I went to Starbuck’s. Kind of spoiled when it comes to coffee so no need to go there. Oh, and we’re in California if you want to take me up on my offer! I really enjoy reading your blog.

    I luuuurrve the looks of this recipe. I love that you don’t have to squeeze the zucchini in a cloth to get the water out. I love that there is chocolate. And walnuts. Nom nom.
    I also love your life stories…You are hilarious and awesome.

    Just attempted to bake this… the flavor is deliciously amazing. However, the bread was too moist.. basically half mush on the inside but the edges are done. I tried to cook it longer but then the sides/edges just got overcooked but the inside still mush. Remake and try to squeeze out some water from the zucchini maybe? And maybe try baking as muffins? Probably my cooking error but I’ll definitely attempt again because it tastes good just have to figure out the texture.

      I haven’t tried it, but I might try decreasing the time and a little and just keeping a close eye on them!

    This is the best paleo bread recipe I have tried. I made it your way a couple times and loved it. Tonight I tried it with a cup of pumpkin and used pumpkin spice to season it and it was delicious!
