 ½ tsp xanthan gum, divided

 1 tsp Splenda brown sugar blend
 ¼ cup erythritoldepending or sweetness preference
 ¼ cup black walnuts, chopped

For the Maple Butter
 ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

 1 tsp ground cinnamon
 ¼ tsp kosher salt
 2 tbsp erythritol
Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 325°F and coat a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or oil.

2

Sift the almond flour, coconut flour, hazelnut flour, protein powder, psyllium husk powder, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and ¼ teaspoon of the xanthan gum into a mixing bowl; set aside.

3

Separate the eggs into 2 large bowls. Add the butter and coconut oil to the bowl with the yolks and, using a whisk, mix until the ingredients are smooth and emulsified (with no separation). Add the heavy cream, vanilla extract, Splenda baking blend, and sucralose, and mix until combined; set aside.

4

Whisk the egg whites until frothy. Add the remaining ¼ teaspoon of xanthan gum and whip until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes.

5

Fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until combined, then add the dry ingredients, walnuts, and shredded zucchini and mix until a thick batter forms.

6

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 40 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

7

While the bread is baking, make the maple butter: Whisk together the butter, maple extract, cinnamon, salt, and sucralose until the mixture is smooth and spreadable.

8

Remove the bread from the oven and turn out onto a cooling rack. When the bread is cool, slice it into 6 equal portions. Serve warm or cool with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the maple butter. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
