Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

With zucchini in full harvest, now’s the perfect time to whip up a batch of zucchini bread! Mum recently created a scrumptious gluten- and grain-free version of our favorite traditional zucchini bread recipe – you’ll find it below.

Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

To enjoy this treat year-round: simply shred fresh zucchini and freeze it in two cup portions, that way you can thaw and toss in the shreds (already measured!) when you’re ready to bake a batch of bread.

Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
1 ¼ cups coconut sugar
2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ cup coconut oil, melted
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ cup coconut flour, sifted
1 tablespoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Beat eggs until light and fluffy; add coconut sugar, zucchini, vanilla. Continue mixing while slowly adding coconut oil. Mix dry ingredients together and add to the egg mixture. Mix until well blended; add nuts.

Pour into two greased loaf pans or line pans with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour. Let cool in pan and then transfer to serving plate.

(It’s awfully delicious while still warm, though… I have to admit that I was rather distracted mid-photoshoot by making a snack out of the subject.)

    Zucchini bread sounds interesting and tasty too! I have had Zucchini cake before and it was really good. The idea of preserving portions of zucchini looks like a great way to save on time.
    I love reading your blog and the photos are beautiful, I don’t normally comment but I thought I’d just say hello!

    Looks delicious! You always make your pictures so lovely that you almost want to eat off your blog page. ;) hehe. Oh yes, I just love shredding the zucchini and using that technique…makes it so nice to have it stored away for future baking! And after a hard days work of baking and photographing, it’s okay to snitch a little of the “fruits of your labor”. ;)

    Blessings to you and your family!

    hi emily rose! this looks delicious! today i was planning on making a quick bread for my great uncle who is allergic to gluten and came to your blog because you always have yummy looking recipes. =) we have on hand a gluten free flour blend (i think it has tapioca flour and some other things in it) and i was wondering if that would work instead of the coconut flour and almond flour.

    I am not gluten-free, but I am trying to eat low-carb….do you happen to know the carb content of this recipe? It doesn’t have any wheat flour so that obviously cuts the carbs down significantly. But I don’t know anything about coconut sugar/flour and almond flour. Thanks for sharing! My daughters and I love your blog!

    Your sister in Christ,

    Made it this morning and it was great! We were out of eggs, so I had to use egg replacer, and it still turned out yummy. Thanks for sharing.

    What a delicious sounding recipe! Finally a bread that is dairy and gluten free. Thanks for sharing!

    It is a joy to read a blog by another Christian who loves God…and is gluten free!

    Thanks Emily!
