How To Cut Zucchini For Bread

I like to use a cheese grater. Run the zucchini along the edges of the grater.

How Does It Taste

It does not taste like zucchini. It’s a sweet bread and you can’t feel the pieces and texture of the zucchini. The zucchini helps give the bread a soft texture. You can read more about How to Make Zucchini Bread here.

Can You Substitute Coconut Flour For Almond Flour?

No, coconut flour is not interchangeable. It absorbs moisture much differently than almond flour.

Carbs in Zucchini

1 cup of zucchini has 4 total carbs, and 3 net carbs. The carbs are relatively low.

Is It Good for Keto?

Zucchini is great for keto because it’s low in carbs and can also serve as a wonderful substitute in pasta dishes.

How Long Does It Stay Fresh in the Fridge?

You can store the zucchini bread at room temperature for 1-2 days. It will last in the fridge for up to a week.

To freeze the zucchini bread, wrap it in foil and freeze it for up to 3 months.

Recipe Tips

  • I only needed to use 1 large zucchini to gather 1 cup. The amount of zucchini you will need will vary based on size.
  • You can fold in Lily’s Low Carb Chocolate Chips with the nuts or instead of nuts if you like.
  • Squeezing the water from the zucchini is really important. You will end up with soggy bread if you don’t do this.
  • For additional flavor you can add lemon zest.
  • Almond butter, peanut butter, cream cheese, and grass fed butter make great toppings for zucchini bread.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a cheese grater, grate and shred the zucchini into smaller bits. Place the zucchini on a paper towel. Sprinkle salt throughout. This will allow the zucchini to sweat out excess moisture. I let the zucchini sit for 30 minutes to release moisture.
  • Add the eggs, olive oil, and vanilla to a medium-large bowl and whisk.
  • Squeeze the excess liquid out of the shredded zucchini. Add the zucchini and ginger to the eggs and olive oil. Stir.
  • Add the almond flour, baking powder, granular sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to a mixing bowl and stir.
  • Add the zucchini and egg mixture to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  • Use a hand mixer and blend until fully incorporated.
  • Spoon the bread batter into the loaf pan. Smooth the top of the batter.
  • Sprinkle the walnuts throughout the top.
  • Bake for 60-65 minutes until you can insert a toothpick and it returns clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Notes

  • You can fold in Lily’s Low Carb Chocolate Chips with the nuts or instead of nuts if you like.
  • Squeezing the water from the zucchini is really important. You will end up with soggy bread if you don’t do this.
  • Zucchini is a veggie that is filled with a lot of water. You will not be able to remove all of the water and moisture, but following the steps above, will remove most.
  • For additional flavor you can add lemon zest.
  • Almond butter, peanut butter, cream cheese, and grass fed butter make great toppings for zucchini bread.

Absolutely wonderful! Easy to follow recipe. On a cold morning with a cup of coffee or tea or whatever you fancy warm drink is absolutely heaven. Plus I have no guilt about eating it because of the healthy ingredients. A little hack, if you live in a area like me where it is hard to find good fresh zucchini sometimes, Harris Teeter has the fresh zucchini in spiral is the produce section. Get it and still do the process of getting the excess water off and then chop it up.
