Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Bread | Gluten-Free | Queen of Quinoa

Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast?

For many of us, myself included, breakfast is usually whipped up in less than 5 minutes, like this delicious recipe. For me, it tends to be random ingredients, fruit and vegetables alike {really it’s whatever I have in my fridge or freezer at the time}, thrown into a blender with a little almond milk, and that’s my meal.

It’s quick, healthy and always delicious. 

But what about those moments when you actually have time to sit down and enjoy your breakfast? When you want more than your same old smoothie or green juice. When you want something slightly sweet, but still packed with vegetables. When you don’t mind really want to spending a few extra minutes in the kitchen, mixing, creaming and baking to your heart’s content.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I’m the type of person who goes crazy for baked goods. And I want something that is melt-in-my-mouth good.

Sweet, summery and chocolatey all at the same time.

No Dairy, but what about Eggs?

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Dutch Baby

Over the years I’ve had countless inquiries about eggs. I’m dairy-free, can I eat eggs? Why do you have an egg recipe on a dairy-free website? Some are confused and polite, but some are downright belligerent!

I finally created a post entitled “Are Eggs Dairy?” to direct people to whenever the question arises. You can read that post to better understand the difference, but the fact of the matter is eggs and milk products are very different foods. It is true that egg allergies are more commonly seen in those with milk allergies versus those without any food allergies, but most people with a milk allergy or intolerance can in fact eat eggs. I think this becomes even more important for those who are gluten-free.

Many who are gluten-free have to go dairy-free, too. Lactose intolerance is very common among those who are newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and cross-reactivity with milk protein seems to be on the rise for those with gluten intolerance or sensitivity. However, those who assume (without confirming via an allergy or elimination test with their physician) that they must cut out eggs with the milk may be in for more of a struggle than need be.

Let Them Eat Vegan – Book Review, Recipe and a Giveaway!


I have a new favorite cookbook and it just so happens to be from one of my favorite cookbook authors (and fellow Canadian), Dreena Burton.

Dreena is the hardworking vegan Momma behind Vive Le Vegan (among others), which I bought about 7 years ago. It’s definitely my most-loved cookbook. Her newest cookbook Let Them Eat Vegan is perfectly titled since you could serve these recipes to just about anyone!

I instantly loved Dreena’s new recipes – they’re kid-friendly (she’s the mother of three young girls), they’re easy, they’re nutrient-dense, and they use ingredients I love and usually have in my pantry.
