Why You’ll Love This Almond Flour Zucchini Bread

Tasty – This healthy zucchini bread is not only easy and quick to make, but it is delicious!

Gluten free – I follow a low carb keto lifestyle so this keto zucchini bread recipe is made with no flour. It is gluten-free, grain-free and diabetic-friendly. I have also added options for dairy-free zucchini bread that is also keto vegan friendly.

Keto friendly – Leaving out flour also makes this an easy recipe perfect for any time of the day.

The Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the quantity of each ingredient used in our keto zucchini bread with almond flour recipe.

Butter – can be replaced with light taste oil, MCT oil or coconut oil for a dairy-free keto bread (see sour cream substitute).

Sour Cream – can be replaced with mashed avocado, Greek yoghurt, or coconut yogurt.

Zucchini – make sure you squeeze out the excess water from the grated zucchini after grating. 

Almond flour or almond meal – I have no preference for this bread. You can use lupin flour to make a lupin flour gluten free bread that is still very low in carbs.

Psyllium husk powder – swap with coconut flour (just 60g) or oat fibre if you prefer.

Baking Powder – I use Bobs Red Mill Double Acting Baking Powder in all my ketogenic baking. It really makes a difference. It helps to give rise to gluten free bread when liquid is added and when it is heated (hence double-acting). Some might recommend adding a touch of baking soda to regular baking powder but I find that Bobs has no bitter aftertaste and is worth ordering online.

Eggs – I use fresh free-range eggs and I always whisk just before adding. The eggs are best added when they are at room temperature. Room temperature eggs are the secret to making non-eggy keto bread.

How To Make It

Step 1. Preheat oven to 180℃ fan/400°F.  Line a 20 x 10 cm loaf pan with baking paper.

Step 2. Melt butter in a large mixing bowl in the microwave or over a pot of simmering water.

Step 3. Squeeze out water from the grated zucchini and add to the bowl along with the remaining ingredients. Spoon into prepared pan, smooth over the top and sprinkle with pepitas

Step 4. Bake 15 minutes then cover with foil and bake a further 30-40 minutes. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes before removing and cooling completely on a wire rack.

BAKING TIPS FOR LOW CARB KETO ZUCCHINI BREAD
This zucchini bread recipe is pretty simple. You simple mix and pour into the pan.
The batter is NOT a dough! It might seem wet when you scoop it into the loaf pan but like most low carb zucchini bread recipes you will find that the zucchini and flour really sucks up the excess moisture.
The bread is ready when it is lightly golden and springy to the touch.
The bread will rise only moderately as it is a low carb bread without yeast. the only rising agent in it is eggs.
Do not skip the apple cider vinegar as it helps to add strength to the bread.
I use a 20 x 10 cm metal baking pan. I do not recommend silicone baking pans for gluten free baking. Metal pans get hotter quicker and force more of a rise when baking.
