This Almond Flour Zucchini Bread recipe is just what you need to put the extra garden zucchini to good use. Using almond flour, eggs, a touch of oil and a full tablespoon of cinnamon, this will definitely be your new favorite!



Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp coconut sugar (for extra sweetness)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup loosely packed, finely shredded zucchini, water squeezed out


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a medium loaf pan (8×4) with parchment paper, allowing overhang, or grease well. Set aside.
  2. Make sure you have shredded your zucchini and squeezed out all of the extra water between a cheesecloth or paper towel. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, tapioca flour, ground cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk together until thoroughly combined; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl whisk together maple syrup, sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla until smooth.
  5. Add dry ingredients into large bowl of wet ingredients, stirring with large spatula until just combined, then gently fold in shredded zucchini. Batter will be somewhat thick.
  6. Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 30 minutes uncovered, then an additional 15 minutes covered with foil.  Check with an inserted toothpick for doneness. If toothpick comes out with wet batter, bake for another 5 minutes uncovered.
  7. Allow bread to cool in pan for 15 minutes before carefully removing from pan and placing on a cooling rack to cool completely. Gently slice bread into desired sized pieces. Enjoy!



FLOUR – I did not test this with other flours. If looking for a whole grain recipe, try these muffins.

EGG – I do not recommend subbing the eggs here, since they help hold the bread together and provide structure.

SUGAR – Maple syrup or honey are the preferred sweetener here. Don’t sub in granulated sugar for the liquid sweetener or the wet-to-dry ratios will be off.
