Spelt Flour works great within Zucchini Bread

Here is a great recipe from about 1976 that I obtained when working at the Student Health Center at Colorado State University. It’s been adapted a little, spelt for wheat, and flaxseed for wheat germ. We also lowered the sugar, and changed the oil to olive oil. Next we will try applesauce as a substitution for the oil. Those of us who know we have a problem with wheat can make this and not suffer with inflammation or pain.

It makes 2 loaves or one 9X13 pan. We did not add any frosting leaving out cream cheese and/or alot of sugar.

3/4 cup white sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
3-4 tsp almond extract flavoring
1 cup olive oil
2 cups grated zucchini
2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/2 cup milled flaxseed
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs lightly, add flavoring, sugar and oil. Beat until thick and foamy. Add the rest of the ingredients, Mix well.

Grease and flour 2 81/2 x 41/2 x 4 loaf pans or one 9 x 13 cake pan and bake approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Organic Spelt Flour

Cold milled flax seeds are used, because whole flax seeds can cause kidney blockage.

Flaxseed is a great source of fiber and vegetable omega 3.  If you are prone to gallstones, and cannot eat walnuts, here is an alternate source for vegetable omega 3.  Be sure and eat cold water fish like salmon and mackarel for your animal omega 3’s.


I have made a low fat version of this and It also makes 2 loaves or 5 small loaves.

1/2 Cup white sugar

3 eggs

3/4 Cup Dark Brown sugar

3 tsp of Almond flavor or maple flavor

1 Cup of applesauce

2 cups of grated zucchini  You can add one cup of chopped nuts also.

2 1/2 Cups of spelt flour

1/2 Cup milled flax seed

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 Teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs lightly, and add flavor, sugar and applesauce. Beat until thick and foamy. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased and floured bread pans. or 1 9×13 cake pan.  Bake one hour.  This recipe is from Colorado…. here in Georgia, It needs only 20-30 minutes.  It is finished when a knife inserted is 99% clean.  It will continue to heat when pulled out and set on cutting board, or stove.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    How to keep the weight off after weight watchers weight loss?

    • kristi said:

      Remember what and how you ate with weight watchers…Duplicating, is good if you can duplicate. I look for recipes on the internet with ingredients I think were used in the dishes..Remember portion sizes. Aging is another factor, and things that worked when you were a child, may sabotage you now. Substitutions for wheat, and some sources of nutrients, may help with fat loss. For example since I don’t eat beef or pork, or eat sweet potatoes, I need to find my B12 somewhere else. Miso soup is a good source, as well as chicken. I take a supplement, because I have found that it is what makes me feel “good” like I can do anything again.

  4. I do enjoy the way you have framed this particular issue and it does present me personally some fodder for consideration. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional point.

    • kristi said:

      Whole wheat is so over produced, it may cause inflammation, or may cause insulin resistance, and higher sugar levels. Older forms of wheat like spelt, and Kamut can be very helpful for digestion, and in my case no pain.

      Yes this is one recipe. It shows how you can replace spelt for regular flour, in cooking, frying, and other applications. Sometimes I just leave it out depending on the recipe. For noodles I use these Why do we use older forms of wheat? Wheat in America, has been over processed and over produced to create more. This over production leads to a loss in nutrients. Wheat causes Blood Type A persons to become very acidic, resulting in bone loss and other mal functions.

  28. Kristi said:

    Wheat in America, is over produced, and over processed. It causes headaches in some, joint pain in some. Trying to replace all the bakery products, crackers, chips, and noodles. Plus all the pre- boxed cake mixes, muffin mixes and everything else, can be too much for just one little body. Cutting back, will cut your cravings, clean your gut, so good nutrients can get in, and maybe even keep you pain free. Substitutes for wheat noodles HERE Will help you, if you can just give up cakes, pies, donuts, sweets of any kind including cookies, and crackers.

    • Kristi said:

      Maybe Italy does not have the over processed and produced GMO wheat that America does. Americans need to take heed to this information as it can be vital to your health Here. Noodles are our other problem area. Now all we have to do is give up all crackers, pies, cakes, white rice, and white potatoes.

      Hi, Inflammation can come in foods actually, and there are two articles I wrote, while transitioning through menopause. This is the first article about my experiences and I have a friend, who started eating the blood type diet way, and found she gets headaches from wheat. This is the second article about my friend(s) Learning which foods inflame your body have been reported to be wheat, tomatoes, corn, and soy. Of which wheat, corn, and soy are now primarily GMO. There is only one blood type that does not have a reaction or inflammation to corn. There is one blood type which does not have a reaction or inflammation to tomatoes. All blood types are advised to use older wheat products. I have added these for reference. Review this page and invest in them for yourself.

      I hope you know your blood type, or you can find out HERE Then you need a book.

      I think this might help fight arthritis.

    Thank you for looking around. I feel so bad for suffering people, so I want to help. The most important thing is to eliminate all American wheat, or use healthy alternatives.
