IS THIS A HEALTHY ZUCCHINI BREAD RECIPE?
Compared to a traditional high carb sugar laden zucchini bread recipe, this keto zucchini bread recipe is:
- Lower in carbohydrates
- Higher in fiber
- higher in omega 3 fatty acids
- lower in calories
We like using walnuts for the omega-3 fatty acids, but feel free to swap the walnuts out for pecans or almonds if you prefer.
HOW TO MAKE ZUCCHINI BREAD
Preheat oven to 350F; line the inside of an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2-inch metal loaf pan with 2 pieces of parchment paper so it hangs over all 4 sides and spray the corners with coconut or avocado oil.
Whisk together the almond flour, flaxseed meal, erythritol, tapioca starch, oat fiber, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
Whisk together the slightly cooled butter or coconut oil, eggs, cream/water mixture, vinegar, vanilla, and stevia glycerite in a medium bowl.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry all at once and stir until combined, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in the zucchini and walnuts.
Immediately pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour, 15 minutes.
Once it’s done cooking, turn off the oven and let the bread sit in the hot oven for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
WHEN YOU GRATE ZUCCHINI DO YOU LEAVE THE SKIN ON?
Yes! We leave the skin on when we grate our zucchini. It gives the bread a better texture, plus it’s one less step you have to take to make this bread.
Just make sure to wash the outside of the zucchini before grating it 🙂
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER ZUCCHINI BREAD
We like to store our leftover zucchini bread in glass containers instead of wrapping them in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. These containers are air tight and this easy zucchini bread will last for about 1 week in the fridge.
You can also freeze the leftover zucchini bread and it should stay good for at least a month.
We’ve experimented with a bunch of different low carb zucchini bread recipes and this texture by far has been the best. We can honestly say that this is the BEST zucchini bread recipe we’ve had regardless of carb content.

DO YOU NEED TO REFRIGERATE ZUCCHINI?
Yes. Store your zucchini unwashed in your refrigerator. Wash promptly before using. Washing your zucchini makes it go bad quicker.
CAN YOU SHRED ZUCCHINI AHEAD OF TIME?
You can shred zucchini ahead of time, but do so with caution. After you shred it, store shredded zucchini in an air tight glass and store in fridge.
Shredded zucchini can last 3-5 days, but it may lose some water content. Before using pre-made shredded zucchini, drain off water.
