Grain-Free Zucchini Bread

Jul 22, 2010 by

So did you try the Stuffed Zucchini Cheeseburger Boats? What did you think?

Do you STILL have more zucchini than you know what to do with? Yeah, me too.

One of my husband’s favorite breads I used to make was my zucchini bread, full of white flour and sugar. Obviously, I couldn’t make it that way so I tried to figure out a way to make it primal without sacrificing the taste or texture. It took a few batches but I think I got it.

In the interest of staying technically primal, I made this with agave. However, some of you have asked me and yes, I do still use a bit of Splenda in my daily life. Especially if you’re insulin resistant like me (for me it’s from PCOS and yes, I’m on 1000 mg of metformin daily), avoiding most sugar-based sweeteners helps the metabolic monster sleep.

However, I get that some people, primal or not, are against artificial anything and find the small amount of agave or honey used in some recipes is negligible and worth the taste. In most recipes, I’ll give you the equivalent amounts of both.

Don’t worry, I have a whole post coming about sweeteners tomorrow!

Anyway, for today I give you

    Yummmmm. I'm going to try to be light on bread for awhile for the sake of carbs and I made your rosemary bread last night so this will have to wait. But I WILL be coming back to it!

    Are you using the same size loaf pan (7.5" by 3.5") that Elana recommends in the Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook?

    Just curious, before I start trying all the bread recipes you're putting out here–which I hope to do this weekend! Thank you!

    Tara – Yup! I used a pretty standard loaf pan!

    I am making this right now. FWIW, your instructions don't include the arrowroot, agave, or vanilla…

  6. I also gotta try this… would be nice toasted with some hand-churned butter and ham :)

  7. When do you add the walnuts? I might ground them up first.
