Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread Recipe by A Girl Defloured

These loaves are chock-full of shredded zucchini, chopped walnuts and spice. Thanks to the addition of coconut milk, they have a light and tender crumb (without any hint of coconut flavor). I like to have mine toasted for breakfast with my coffee, but add a little cream cheese frosting and it would make a perfect tea cake or dessert as well.

  • 1 full cup of grated zucchini (from about 1 medium zucchini)
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose gluten-free flour blend (we like Pamela’s GF Artisan Blend too)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour(or finely ground almond meal)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend already has it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil (or other light oil)
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk (or regular whole milk)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pure GF vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray 3 mini loaf pans with gluten-free cooking spray (or one standard 9-inch loaf pan) and set aside.
  2. Place the shredded zucchini into some paper towels and gently squeeze out any moisture. Fluff the zucchini with a fork and set aside.
  3. Put the all-purpose gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl and whisk to blend. In another large bowl add the brown sugar, canola oil, eggs, coconut milk, lemon juice and walnuts. Whisk thoroughly until smooth.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat until combined. Fold in the grated zucchini (I always reserve just a little to sprinkle over the tops of the loaves) and the nuts.
  5. Divide evenly between the pans, sprinkle over the reserved zucchini and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then carefully turn out to cool completely on a rack.
