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!

Zucchini Keto bread, a  gluten-free zucchini bread recipe

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.

Plus, 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!
  • Coconut flour – don’t be tempted to skip the small amount of coconut flour. This makes the texture perfect, preventing an overly moist bread.
  • Eggs
  • 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 monk fruit sweetener – I am using Lakanto sweetener as always. 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 to 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

  • Zucchini – you must 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.
  • Baking time – it is a huge loaf, be patient, and bake for at least 50 minutes up to 70 minutes! Also, I recommend baking on fan-bake mode for more consistent baking.
  • Don’t skip the coconut flour – this is a small amount, but I found this very powerful to keep the bread texture perfect. It comes out much moister if you skip it!

There are many options to make sweet bread with no white sugar. My favorite option is always sugar-free monk fruit crystal as it has no after taste and can be used in a 1:1 ratio replacement to sugar in most recipes.

Hi! Do you need help to start Keto?

However, if you can’t find where you live, there are plenty of keto-friendly sugar-free sweeteners on the market like:

  • Swervea combo of erythritol and stevia also known as Natvia in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Lakanto – a combo of Monk fruit and stevia.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper to make sure the bread doesn't stick to the pan. Set aside.
  • Grate the zucchini finely, skin on, using a food processor or a hand grater. Squeeze out the water from the grated zucchini pressing them with your hands first, then pat dry on kitchen absorbent paper (or clean towel). You must remove all the water from the zucchini or the bread batter may be too moist. Measure the amount of grated zucchini required by the recipe after you dry them. Set aside in a bowl.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, sugar-free crystal sweetener, baking powder, and spices: cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Stir in wet ingredients: beaten eggs, vanilla, and melted coconut oil. Combine for about 1 minute until it forms a consistent cake batter.
  • Stir in grated zucchini (make sure they are dry, no liquid), chopped walnuts, and 1/4 cup chopped pecan nuts as you keep 1/4 cup to decorate the top of the bread.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chopped pecan on top. Slightly press the nuts on top of the bread to make sure they stick to it while baking.
  • Bake on fan-bake mode, in the center rack of the oven, for 50 -70 minutes in total. After 30 minutes add a piece of foil on top of the bread to avoid burning the top of the bread and ensuring the bread cook perfectly inside.
  • After 50 minutes of baking, insert a skewer in the middle of the bread. If the batter sticks a lot to the skewer, it is not ready. Return to the oven with the piece of foil on top and keep baking for another 10 to 20 minutes. It can take up to 70 minutes to be fully baked inside as this is thick bread, be patient, and keep baking until set in the middle. Repeat the skewer trick every 10 minutes to check when ready. It is ready when few to no crumbs stick on the skewer, and the center is not jiggly.
  • Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then lift out the pieces of parchment paper to transfer the zucchini bread onto a cooling rack. Wait at least 3 hours or overnight before slicing. It must be fully cool down to prevent the bread from crumbling when sliced.

How to store?

  • Store in the pantry or fridge for up to 4 days, in an airtight container, or freeze zucchini bread slices in a ziplock bag. Defrost the day before.

How to eat zucchini keto bread?

  • Eat plain or spread peanut butter or butter on your bread slice. You can bring the slices 1 minute in a toaster if desired.

    Made this last night and waited until this morning to try it. Cannot believe how delicious this is and you would never know it’s low carb.. Winner winner

  2. Hi! I’m planning on making this for my diabetic sister who doesn’t like coconut. Does this have a strong coconutty taste? If so, what can I substitute the coconut oil with? I understand the coconut flour is necessary but can I substitute the coconut oil? Thank you for this recipe!

    Made this this morning; actually doubled the recipe! Waited until just now to try it (My husband was chomping at the bit but I told him he had to wait 3 hours for it to cool), but it was worth the wait. Looks exactly like the pictures and I think the key was squeezing all the moisture out of the zucchini. Anyway, will definitely be making it again. Also I usually grate the zucchini but followed directions and used food processor which was much quicker and easier. Then I used cheesecloth to squeeze out all the moisture. Thank you. Re-starting my keto journey and this will definitely help me through it! Thank you.

    This recipe turned out perfect! I used yellow summer squash instead of zucchini and added some fresh orange zest to the batter. Definitely does not taste like a keto recipe. I’d put the flavor and texture right up there with regular zucchini bread!

  5. My batter is thick, almost like thick cookie dough. Yours looks much more moist, but I followed the recipe exactly, and squeezed all the water out of the zucchini. Is it supposed to be that thick?

  6. 5 stars
    Delicious!! My husband is diabetic, so I’m always in search of low-carb dessert options. The only thing I changed was using Trivia for baking instead of erythritol. I will be making this many many more times!! Thank you so very much!!

  7. 5 stars
    I made this last night and it is sooooo good!!! I will be making it in my muffin pan next. I love all your recipes I have tried.

    Thank you.


    • I didn’t try this option as I don’t use Splenda in my recipes. The amount you will need will probably be lower as Splenda is very sweet compared to erythritol. Feel free to experiment ! Let me know how it goes. XOXO Carine

  8. 5 stars
    This was awesome! It had a more breadlike feel than most almond flour baked goods, and it baked just as the instructions said. I REALLY REALLY like cinnamon, so I’ll add more next time, and maybe more zucchini. But it was just fine the way it is!

    • You can’t make the bread without coconut flour, it’s 4 times more liquid absorbent than almond flour and it hold the bread together. If you want to experiment replacing coconut flour by 4 times more almond flour it may work but the bread might be wet or too dense.

  9. Can I make this bread without the zucchini or substitute it with cheese most likely cheddar cheese

  10. 5 stars
    This was the best keto recipe I have ever tasted, never would have guessed it was keto. My SO loved it too. I added some psyllium fiber to it. I will be making this again, might try a savory version.
