My Mom used to make the best Zucchini Bread when I was growing up. I remember it wasn’t nearly as common a thing back then, and at school kids and teachers alike would give me a look of disgust when I told them what I had brought for my morning snack.
Well 20 years later it seems SA is now the one giving me that same look when I told him about this recipe… but then he tasted it. While grocery shopping last week, I saw a deal on zucchini and may have taken things a little too far (this will become very evident with the number of zucchini recipes I post in the coming week).
This bread is very quick and easy to make, it takes just 5 minutes of preparation time and an hour in the oven. It’s incredibly moist and can last up to 6 months in the freezer.
I enjoy eating it straight from the oven, or for breakfast toasted and topped with jam. To ease kids into the idea of zucchini bread try adding a handful of chocolate chips into the first few batches.
If you make this recipe let me know in the comment section below, I would love to hear what you think or take a photo and tag me (@everylastbite_) on Instagram, I love seeing your photos!
- 2 cups almond flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 cups of grated zucchini well packed should be approx. 2 zucchini
- 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
Set the oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf tin with parchment paper, this will make removing it after baking much easier
In a mixing bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Once well combined add in the eggs, honey and coconut oil and mix.
Finally stir in the chopped walnuts and shredded zucchini.
Pour the batter into the loaf tin and put in the oven for 45 minutes I usually cover the bread with tin foil to ensure that it doesn't brown too quickly on top
The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the pan and slicing.
