Gluten-Free Zucchini Noodle Banana Bread

 

Today is Inspiralized’s four year anniversary/blogiversary!! And we’re celebrating with zoodle bread!

Four years ago today, I started Inspiralized. The morning of this day, I walked with Lu as he went to work and I stopped off at a coffee shop on the way, opened up my laptop, and started from scratch.

It’s surreal to think of what all has happened since that day four years ago, but everyday I wake up feeling blessed, grateful, and excited about what the future holds! I couldn’t be happier bringing you spiralized inspiration every day, and I can’t wait to bring you on this journey for as long as you’ll join me!

You can read more about the Inspiralized story here, but since then, so much has happened. Here are the biggest highlights:

Aside from that, I got engaged, married, and pregnant! Talk about a fabulous four years. I don’t know how I’m going to top them!

Gluten-Free Zucchini Noodle Banana Bread

I literally pinch myself every day, and I never take a day for granted. Building my dream career and life has given me so much perspective and really taught me that we should be thankful for the life and opportunities we are given – and make the most of them!

NOW, to celebrate this four-year blogiversary (is that even a word?!), I’m sharing a recipe for this gluten-free Zucchini Noodle Banana Bread, using Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour! It’s the perfect healthy weeknight treat – or amazing for a morning breakfast, with a little drizzle of nut butter!

And what better way to celebrate my blogiversary than by using Bob’s Red Mill products, a brand that has supported Inspiralized from day one?! Bob’s is all about “Fuel Your Awesome” – enjoying your summer and keeping happy and healthy by fueling yourself with quick and easy meals!

This banana bread fits the “Fuel Your Awesome” theme – it’s easy to make and saves well, so you can fuel yourself all week long. I love to have it as breakfast, with a little drizzle of almond, peanut or sunflower butter. It’s great as a quick breakfast grab – or even after a workout, to refuel with potassium from the bananas and protein from the nuts, egg and coconut flour! This flour is high in fiber, perfect for feeling satisfied longer – and aiding in digestion!

Limiting us to one thing we like about Spiralizing? Not fair! Your blog has really been helpful in finding really tasty recipes that are as creative as I like to be! The fact that you go to the trouble to investigate and post the WW points, is a bonus. A friend bought me someone else's cookbook and I couldn't even begin to understand her directions and I'm a seasoned cook, so your walking us through your blog, You Tube and your FB community has really made spiralizing fun! I know you're grateful for the adventure these last for years have been, but we are grateful you decided to go on it, head on! Thank you!
Emily says:
I love how quick & easy spiralizing makes my meal prep! Having a diet full of fruits and veggies is a breeze! Plus...it's fun to get my whole family and my friends #inspiralized too!

These noodles sounds good

I like the unique and lovely ideas! They are also very simple.
Jane Kumar says:
I am obsessed with your blog on instagram Ali!! Love your live feeds. First thing I look at in the morning. You and Lu are so cute! Your recipes and pictures are great to follow. Love the links you add to it if you are not an experienced cook like myself. Like what coconut flour you use etc. Also, the youtube videos has helped me quite a bit. The Chicken sausage and potato recipe is great. I live in Saint Petersburg, Florida and wanted to show up at Fresh Kitchen to meet you (i promise not in a stalker way). You look so great being pregnant. You have soooo much energy!!! Thanks for being so inspiring!
Patricia says:
I'm perplexed, just made the zucchini banana bread, only thing changed in recipe is doubled the almond milk but was more like cookie dough thick and dry. Baked it came out dry and crumbly, horrible. How do we thin it out a bit to be more like bread batter and to bake up properly?
Patricia says:
I'm inexperienced with coconut flour so don't know how to adjust. Thank you

Mine was exactly the same! weird
Stephanie says:
I had the same issue! Would love to know if anyone has tips to improve this.
Anna E says:
I had the same thing! Any updates on how to fix this? It’s horrible :(
While players will usually argue abolut which map will bee the absoluyte hardest, Deep Space Turtle Chase beelongs innside thee top three, woth no doubt. From simple huts and buildings to complex loigic gates and switch systems used to power elaborate cities, in Minecraft anything iis possible. At the time of his writing, the 360 version is a few updztes behhind the present PC version, but in accordance with news found about the internet and good sources, eventually the 2 versions is going to bbe involved to every other.
Shelley J says:
I'm getting more fresh veggies into my son and he loves spiraling the veggies. It's win-win
Very creative. Congrats on your fourth year of blogiversary.
I would like to show my love for your generosity giving support to men and women who absolutely need help with this subject. Your special dedication to getting the message around ended up being wonderfully helpful and has really enabled women just like me to realize their targets. The invaluable recommendations indicates a lot to me and substantially more to my office colleagues. Best wishes; from everyone of us.
Anna E says:
Not sure why, but this recipe didn’t turn out at all for me. So crumbly and didn’t stay together. Sounded great but it was a total fail.
Awgirl says:
I just love how pretty food is when it’s inspiralized!!
Carly Glazer says:
Yes! Agreed!
Anonymous says:
Hello, this turned out great! how long will these stay fresh in fridge or freezer?
Carly Glazer says:
We usually only like to keep things like this in the freezer for about a week!

~ pineapple & mango salsa (fresh prepared foods)⁣

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas
...

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)
...

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
