Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread

Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread 1

This yummy Zucchini Bread is the sneakiest way to get your kids to eat their veggies without them knowing it! My coconut flour version of Zucchini Bread is a great option for those who are gluten-intolerant and tree nut-intolerant. Most bread recipes call for traditional white flour or almond flour, but I have always liked the lightweight texture of coconut flour! Keep in mind that coconut flour soaks up much more moisture, so the substitution for almond or white flour will not be 1:1. In most cases, you’ll need to double or triple the amount of flour and reduce the amount of eggs.

Yields: 8 slices

  4. In a large mixing bowl or NutriBullet, combine eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well.
  5. Slowly add in coconut flour, making sure to blend thoroughly, followed by baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  6. Last, fold in shredded zucchini (and chocolate chips, if desired) with a mixing spoon.
  7. Pour mixture into greased loaf pan (and top with pumpkin seeds, if desired).
  8. Bake 45-50 minutes (can be modified to 25-30 minutes for muffins).
