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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    160 Thoughts On Keto Zucchini Bread with Almond Flour
    1 3 4 5
  1. Hey
    This recipe looks delicious, – any chance of metric measurements (grams) for your fans in Europe

    • I didn’t try something else I am sorry. Usually you can replace replace coconut flour by 4 times more almond flour but the texture of the bread will be very different too – it might be heavier and crumbly. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

  2. Going to make this for Christmas. My question is this. It says 3.3 grams of carbs but on the way ingredients it say 5 grams. My granddaughter was diagnosed with type one diabetes and has to count everything.

    • Great idea! A slice of bread contins 5 g of carbs including 1.7 g of fiber. We always takeaway fiber from carbs count beause fiber are non digestable and won’t raise blood sugar level. That is what we call net carbs, total carbs takeaway fiber. That is the reason why 1 slice of this zucchini bread brings only 3.3 grams net carbs per slice for 16 slices er bread. Enjoy the recipe and Merry Christmas, XOXO Carine

    This is delicious! I have this bread in my weekly rotation. I used to use meal replacement bars here in the U.S. for low carb dieting. Now that I have discovered these recipes I will never buy them again. This bread is so good and made with whole ingredients. Thank you Carine for another yummy recipe!

    • Thank you so much! That is the most beautiful comment I read today. I am so glad you find my blog, XOXO Carine.

  4. Hello, do you think it would work if i substituted 2 of the eggs with flax eggs? I usually dont try making anything with over 3 eggs as im super sensitive to the eggy taste factor . it looks so good!

    • Same response as for the pound cake, I have no idea as I didn’t try but based on experience in baking keto this will not work/hold together.

  5. 5 stars
    Omg this is the bomb! So most and delicious. I always put a piece of bread in the container. It keeps baking good moist.

    • Of course you can, if the pan is larger the batter will be less thick and bake faster, that is all. Check the baking with a skewer after 30 minutes and keep baking until ready. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

  6. 5 stars
    I just brought this out of the oven. Can not wait to try it. Smells delicious and looks awesome. Thank you for the recipe!

    • That is AMAZING! Thank you so much for reporting back I am so excited that you try this new recipe. XOXO Carine.

  7. 5 stars
    I just made this bread and it is delicious. Mine took 70 minutes to set in the middle and I wait 3 hours before slicing. It was perfect, the house already smell like fall !

    • I am SO excited ! you are the first who made it and I am glad it came out so well. Enjoy the low carb recipes around here. XOXO Carine.

    • There is no maple syrup in the recipe, I am using Monk fruit crystal as mention in the ingredients list so yes monk fruit or erythritol works. Enjoy the bread. XOXO Carine.

      • I was trying to look up mom fruit crystal to see if it’s the same as what I have “Monk Fruit in the Raw” (like the other Sugar in the Raw” specific Brand) and I don’t think it is because I know this is way sweeter than sugar and 3/4 cup seems like a lot of a sweetener that is sweeter than sugar. In your opinion is this the same? If not, how much of “monk fruit in the raw” should be used? Thank you!

        This is the sugar I’m talking about.

        • Raw monk fruit, like stevia doesnt add bulk to keto baked goods and its overly sweet. You cant replace erythritol in keto bread or cakes with this option. The texture will be very different. I recommend combo of erythritol and monk fruit, Lakanto brand is great, enjoy, xoxo Carine
