400g of grated unpeeled courgette. I used the food processor for speed.
8 medium eggs
120g grated parmesan
120g almond flour
25g sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons psyllium husk
2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps Ras al Hanout, or your favourite savoury spice blend
Preheat the oven to 180C
Finely grate the courgette and squeeze out excess water with a clean dishcloth.
In a large bowl mix up the eggs until fluffy. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine well.
Place the batter into a parchment lined loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy with cheese, salad or even on its own.
