Zucchini Bread Recipe

Health Garden Grain-Free Zucchini Bread

Summertime is zucchini-time! I haven’t made zucchini bread in quite a while and although I did have a zucchini bread recipe on this site, I revamped it recently. It’s such a great recipe that it didn’t need too much work, but I think the recipe below is simpler. Without further ado, here’s my Health Garden Grain-Free Zucchini Bread. Let me know what you think in the comments!

As you may have noticed in the title, this bread is made with Health Garden. Health Garden is a brand that makes sweeteners, including refined sugar-free sweeteners. This recipe uses their Baking Sweetener. This natural xylitol-based Baking Sweetener is a specially engineered formula that finally allows for totally sugar free baking without sacrificing on the taste, quality and texture of your favorite cakes and pastries. And although this recipe doesn’t call for yeast, a little fun fact about this sweetener is that it does not adversely affect the yeast in your recipes and allows for balanced rising in any recipe.

This bread is not just refined sugar-free and gluten-free, but also grain-free and optionally dairy-free.

Note: If you want to take this bread to the next level, when you want a slice or two, place individual slices on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven (or toaster oven) for about 10 minutes. The bread will crisp up and then you can top it with mascarpone cheese and a thin coat of jam (apple jam is great on this!). You can thank me for this tip in the comment section! :)

    Is there a different sweetener I can use in this? Such as Stevia, etc?

      Hi Mandy,

      This sweetener is a cup-for-cup replacement for sugar, so you can use regular sugar, coconut sugar, or any other cup-for-cup sugar alternative. Stevia is usually a bit sweeter than regular sugar, so if you use stevia you might need to use less or do part stevia and part another sweetener.

    Can I use another gluten free flour?

      I used almond flour to make this grain-free. If you don’t need it to be grain-free, you can try using regular gluten-free all-purpose flour blend.

    Too many recipes use almond flour which is just one of my allergies. I have tried to find substitutes for it but it seems to be a flour that is not easy to substitute. Can anything else be used?

      Hi Carolyn,

      You could use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend (the bread would no longer be grain-free though), but you’ll probably need to increase the temp to 350 and cut the baking time by 10 minutes or so, then check it and make sure a toothpick comes out clean in the center of the bread.
