This keto zucchini bread is an easy moist almond flour low-carb sweet bread with grated zucchini, walnuts, pecan, and delicious fall spices flavor.

Plus, it is dairy-free, meaning it is a paleo low-carb zucchini bread!

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!

Ingredients

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.
  • 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 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.

Tip: Preparing The Zucchini

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.

Tip: The Coconut Flour Adds Texture

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.

Tip: Use Fan-baked Mode

I recommend baking on fan-bake mode for more consistent baking.

Storage Instructions

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Classic Zucchini Bread Keto?

No, classic zucchini bread loaves are made with all-purpose flour and sugar, both very high in carbs.
A classic zucchini bread slice contains more than 30 grams of net carbs, almost 10 times what you have in this recipe.

Can I Make Savory Zucchini Bread?

Yes, you can make this recipe savory by replacing the sweetener with cheese, spices, or even bacon.

Can I Skip The Egg In This Zucchini Bread Recipe?

No, you can’t remove the egg. The recipe doesn’t work well with egg replacers or with flaxseed eggs.

Can I Substitute the Coconut Flour with Regular Flour?

No, coconut flour is highly moisture-absorbent. It would require too much all-purpose flour to compensate, making the bread heavy.

How Can I Make Sugar-Free Zucchini Bread?

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup Grated Zucchini packed, all the excess water removed.
  • 2 ¼ cups Almond Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • ¾ cup Granulated Sweetener or xylitol (use 1 cup if you have a very sweet tooth!)
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon Nutmeg

  • ½ cup Walnuts chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). 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 cooled down to prevent the bread from crumbling when sliced.

How to store the bread?

  • 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.

    172 Thoughts On Keto Zucchini Bread with Almond Flour
    1 2 3 4 5 6
  1. Can I cook this in an airfryer/toaster oven? I have one that also does convection cooking. It is 1800 watt. If I cook it in there, how long should it take?

    • I don’t recommend toaster oven for any of my cakes or bread recipe. I am not sure about airfyer, I don’t have one myself but some readers report success with their airfryer and usually decrease baking temperature by 20C. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

    I have made this recipe three times love it. I added Lily’s semi-sweet baking chips and it was fantastic!

  3. 5 stars
    Thank you for this recipe. I have tried so many low carb squash bread recipes & this is the ABSOLUTE BEST one out there. It has such great texture, you really have a hard time telling it’s Keto friendly. It doesn’t crumble, it’s perfect!

  4. 5 stars
    I followed this recipe to a T and I was impressed by the wonderful aroma during baking and the texture of the end product. Taste like a cake and I love it! Shared some slices with my neighbors and they love it too! I’ll definitely make this again and freeze them so I can have it anytime. Thank you for this recipe!

  5. Hello. I’m in the process of making this now. I have a doubt for the metric conversion. It says 2 1/4 cups almond flour is 270g. That seems a lot. 1 cup is usually 100 g, so it seems it should be 225g, not 270. Also the sweetener is way more when converted. Just letting you know…..

    • he conversion is correct. The weight of 1 cup of almond flour depends on the way your measure your flour and how coarse the flour is. I am always using ultra fine almond flour and the scoop, pack level up method which means that 1 cup comes to 121 g so yes 270 g. Follow the recipe in US cups or in grams as you like. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine

    This recipe was so easy to follow and I am so happy I found it! I didn’t put in nutmeg or ginger because I didn’t have any, but I think it still turned out delicious! Made my house smell like a bakery!

  7. I used a conversion website to see how much truvia(stevia and erythritol) to use instead of the 3/4 cup of erythritol. But will using truvia effect the recipe? Thank you

  8. 5 stars
    Just want to say these are REEEEAALLYY good!!!???????????? The only thing I did differently was exchange the zucchini for yellow summer squash, and made muffins instead of loaf.(and no blueberries this time- can’t have them right now) I might add some toasted sliced almonds to garnish the top with the glaze and for a crunch.

  9. 5 stars
    Made this and love it! It was still a little crumbly/moist in the very center so will bake a bit longer next time. Can this be made as muffins? Any suggestions for adapting baking times or temp? Thank you. This is a nice treat as hubby is diabetic and I’m always looking for goodies he can enjoy that aren’t too difficult. This is perfect. PS: I added 1 TSP physillium.

  10. 5 stars
    I made this tonight. It was soooo delicious and moist! The smell from the oven was wonderful. I didn’t wait the three hours before slicing. Sorry, .I couldn’t wait.

    • It will change the texture for sure but it should work anyway. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

    Made this last night and it is the best keto zucchini bread I have had or made. It is so moist and delicious. I divided the batter and made two small loaves…one is almost gone????It’s a keeper????

  12. 5 stars
    Just made today… best textured keto bread I’ve ever made. Ground my own almond flour and used 1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener instead. Next time, will add salt, a bit more sweetness and also a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg. This ones a keeper!

  13. 5 stars
    YUMMY! My husband can’t stop thanking me for making him this delicious treat. Everything turned out perfectly, he even proved you right about the loaf crumbling if you try to cut it too soon. But he said the crumbles were worth it to get a taste while it was still warm!

  14. 5 stars
    Just made this and I am totally impressed! I have made a lot of Keto stuff that just doesn’t turn out or tastes like cardboard! This is delicious and turns out perfect! The only thing I did different is I used yellow summer squash because we have a garden and that is what I have an abundance of! Turned out AMAZING!!!!

  15. We have severe allergies to nuts in our home & can’t use almond flour/milk. This recipe & zucchini bread call for almond flour, what could I do in its place?

    • Usually any keto recipe using almond flour can be made by replacing almond flour by same amount of pumpkin seed flour or sunflower seed flour. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

    This is the BEST zucchini bread I’ve ever made. Thanks for all the tips! I will definitely share this and make it again. WORTH all the effort! Delicious
