Almond-Flour Zucchini Bread


Almond flour gives this tender gluten-free zucchini bread a boost of protein. Squeezing excess moisture from the zucchini prevents the bread from becoming too soggy. If you want to make it extra special, add some dark chocolate chips to the mix.

Prep Time:

Total Time:
2 hrs 15 mins
2 mini loaves


  • 3 large eggs

  • ½ cup light brown sugar

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups shredded zucchini (from 1 medium)

  • 1 ¼ cups almond flour

  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottoms and sides of two 6-by-3-inch mini loaf pans with parchment paper.

  2. Whisk eggs, brown sugar, oil and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Place shredded zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and wring out any excess moisture. Stir into the wet ingredients. Whisk almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Divide the batter between the 2 prepared pans, spreading evenly.

  3. Bake until the loaves are golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool before slicing, about 1 hour.


To make ahead: Store the loaves, individually wrapped, at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
