Description

This Gluten Free Almond Flour Zucchini Bread is just as moist and delicious as a traditional loaf, with more added nutrients.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini*
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt (1/4 tsp heaping fine salt)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg, preferably freshly ground
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup fruity extra virgin olive oil*
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins

Instructions

  1. Heat oven and prep pan: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. Line with parchment overlapping sides. Grease bottom of parchment.
  2. Squeeze zucchini: Place grated zucchini in a kitchen towel and squeeze out all excess liquid. Put in a dry towel and allow to dry out further until ready to use.
  3. Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk to thoroughly combine.
  4. Mix wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and sugar until well mixed. Stream in oil while whisking until fully incorporated. Whisk in zest and vanilla. Stir in the zucchini. 
  5. Mix together dry and wet: Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients in 2 to 3 additions. Do not over-mix. Fold in the walnuts and raisins.
  6. Bake: Spoon batter into the prepared pan and smooth out top. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 35-45 minutes or until browned, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. The bread should register between 205-210F in the center.
  7. Cool and serve: Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
