Paleo Zucchini Bread

This paleo zucchini bread is delicious, moist and flavorful. And unlike most paleo zucchini bread recipes, it’s not overly dense. It’s a tasty way to use up all your in season zucchini and give a nutrient boost to bread.

This super moist paleo zucchini bread recipe is made with almond flour, tapioca flour and coconut flour. It's gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and extremely delicious. 

When it’s zucchini season it’s an absolute must to whip up a loaf of this paleo zucchini bread. It’s gluten-free and grain-free, using my usual triumvirate of flours (almond flour, tapioca flour and coconut flour) for the perfect texture. And if there’s any doubts on why three flours are necessary, just read all the comments on my reader favorite paleo chocolate cake recipe.

This paleo zucchini bread is virtually identical to my gluten-free zucchini bread recipe, but so many readers didn’t realize that recipe was also paleo-friendly, so I’ve posted this updated version today (with just a few minor tweaks).

One thing you should note, I’ve kept kept the maple syrup to a minimum in this recipe. That means you could easily use this recipe for both sweet and savory options. But if you’d like a sweeter bread, you could certainly increase the maple syrup by 1-2 tablespoons. And if you’d like a much sweeter bread, you definitely need to whip up my chocolate zucchini bread.

This is a quickbread recipe (similar to my paleo banana bread and paleo pumpkin bread recipes) so it will naturally be a thicker bread than sandwich bread.

On my Summer Meal Prep video I show you a few ways to get creative with your paleo zucchini bread recipe. Of course you can eat it plain or top it with butter. But you can also top it with a variety of other ingredients for a delicious, healthy and creative breakfast or lunch option. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Add all of the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  • In a separate bowl add the eggs, applesauce and maple syrup and whisk together. Squeeze the grated zucchini in a nut milk bag or kitchen towel to remove the excess water. Then add the grated zucchini to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until the batter is well mixed. Pour the batter into a greased 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan.
  • Bake the zucchini bread for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Lisa's Tips

  • This is the nut milk bag I use to squeeze the zucchini and I love it. It's great for homemade almond milk as well.

  1. Is almond flour the same as almond meal
    I cannot get almond flour

    • Hi Yvonee – almond flour is normally made from blanched almonds where it is grounded more and almond meal has more of a coarse grind. You can try using almond meal instead if you don’t have almond flour :)
