You know how much I love good zucchini bread.
Last year, I shared my chocolate zucchini bread recipe with you, so let me introduce the fall spice version of it!
What Is Zucchini Bread?
Zucchini bread is a classic bread loaf made with a large portion of grated zucchini.
The zucchinis in the bread add a degree of chewiness but also a great fresh taste!
If you are missing a sweet bread on your keto diet, this keto-friendly zucchini bread will fix it in no time.
Indeed, this keto zucchini bread has the most delicious sweet flavor, with only 3.3 grams of net carbs per slice.
Making Zucchini Bread
This is a simple recipe. It takes a few simple ingredients and very few steps to make it!
All you need to make this gluten-free zucchini bread recipe are a few simple ingredients:
- Almond flour – or almond meal, both work in this recipe. I’m a real fan of almond flour zucchini bread. Almonds give it a delicious taste! Learn how to choose your keto-friendly flour.
- Coconut flour – don’t be tempted to skip the small amount of coconut flour. This makes the texture perfect, preventing an overly moist bread.
- Melted coconut oil or butter.
- Grated zucchini – make sure you measure the grated zucchini after you squeeze out all the water. Zucchinis are very good keto-friendly vegetables. So is a Zucchini bread keto-friendly? Yes, it very much is!
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener – I am using erythritol. It has a delicious sweet flavor with no aftertaste. Don’t replace this with pure stevia, or the recipe will be overly bitter, and the bread won’t hold together. Other options are erythritol or xylitol, but to learn more about sweeteners or convert them, head to my keto sweetener converter!
- Baking powder or use half the amount of baking soda if preferred.
- Spices – I used a combo of ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. You may also want to add all-purpose spices or replace the total amount of spices with pumpkin spices!
- Chopped pecan and walnuts – you can use a combo of both nuts or only walnuts or pecan. It is up to you.
- Vanilla extract or essence
Making The Batter
This is a very easy keto low carb zucchini recipe as all you have to do is bring all the ingredients in one bowl.
Squeeze out as much water as you can from the grated zucchinis. Adding water to the bread will dilute the batter, and it will never cook inside if it is too moist.
Use your hands to squeeze out the water or pat dry the grated zucchini on absorbent kitchen paper to soak all the zucchini juice.
Start by combining the dry ingredients and mixing them with a silicone spatula.
There is a small amount of coconut flour, but I found this very powerful to keep the bread texture perfect. It comes out much moister if you skip it!
Then add the wet ingredients in any order and combine again until consistent.
Finally, add the grated zucchini and incorporate them gently into the batter.
Baking The Zucchini Bread
Transfer the Zucchini Bread batter to a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
Sprinkle some chopped pecan nuts on the top to decorate it.
Then, bake the low-carb zucchini bread at 350°F (180°C) for 50 to 70 minutes. You know it’s ready when a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
I recommend baking on fan-bake mode for more consistent baking.
This bread can be stored for up to 4 days in the fridge or in an airtight container.
You can also freeze the zucchini bread slices in individual zip lock bags. Thaw them in a toaster or in the oven for a minute or two.
