GRAIN FREE ZUCCHINI RHUBARB CINNAMON LOAF (COCONUT FLOUR) a healthy amount of zucchini is subtly packed into this cinnamon-heavy coconut flour loaf, with bursts of tart-yet-sweet rhubarb.

Zucchini is my new BFF. I don’t know why I was missing out on the zucchini train for so long!!! The thing is, I’ve definitely been on the zucchini train before– but every time I get off the train I seem to forget just how lit that zuc’d up train ride can be until I randomly purchase another zucchini and I’m like OH YEAH.

This is a weird, unnecessary metaphor about loving zucchini when you have it and thus bake with it, but somehow forgetting about its existence and yumminess when its not sitting visibly in your fridge. I have more where this came from if you need any unnecessary metaphors that barely make sense holla @ me!

So yeah, I am in a bit of a zucchini craze right now, and you will certainly see another zucchini-related recipe from me, possibly by the week’s end. Sorry not sorry.

Nonetheless, first up in my zucchini recipe series (which may only consist of two-three recipes, lolol), is my zucchini rhubarb cinnamon loaf. It’s a grown-up, adult-friendly loaf, but kids may also enjoy the flavours here.

Basically, you have this coconut flour loaf that’s filled with the subtle sweetness of zucchini, backed with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg for a bit of a chai-esque flavour profile, and finally, filled with pieces of rhubarb for a bit of a tartness factor. Beautiful pieces of rhubarb are laid on top of the loaf, which I happened to do in a sort of ombre-esque fashion (I’m clearly super excited about it!), as the “icing on the cake” that is ultimately neither icing/cake.

Ouh, I did leave out one of the most important details concerning the creation of this loaf: a bit of cinnamon-honey goodness. You really cannot go wrong when you add cinnamon and/or honey to any of your baked goods. Everything benefits from a little cinnamon-honey swirl you know what I mean? Case-in-point. The cinnamon-honey swirl in this cake adds a bit more of a spice-kick to it while also giving the loaf a beautiful brown swirl beneath the red-and-green rhubarb. I’m an artist!
