Ingredients

  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup Swerve or Sukrin:1
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Carbquik see Note for gluten-free option
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup shredded summer squash

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy with an electric mixer. Beat in the sugar, butter, oil, and vanilla. In separate bowl, mix in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually add dry ingredients to egg mixture. Fold in the squash. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake about 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Notes

To make gluten-free, replace Carbquik with 4 parts almond flour and 1 part coconut flour. I used 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond flour, and 6 tablespoons coconut flour.
