Highlights

With summer quickly approaching and zucchini almost in season, you’ll want to try this recipe as soon as possible. I don’t have a garden at home, but I have so many friends who are amazing gardeners. It seems like every summer they are practically begging me to take giant zucchini off their hands. Now you know what I will be making with all of it!

This recipe is gluten-free, and can also be made dairy-free and vegan. See the recipe card below for all of my substitutions.

Recipe Tips

I recommend using Bob’s Red Mill 1 For 1 Gluten Free Flour for this recipe. It’s what I use for most of my gluten-free baking, and I find that it is very consistent and gives great results.

You’ll also need a food processor or grater to grate the zucchini. I adore my Breville Sous Chef food processor, and the shredding disk that came with it.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Preheat your oven and spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Grate or shred your zucchini and gather up your ingredients.

Step Two

Step Three

Step Four

Let the bread cool for about 10 minutes before serving. One of the best parts about this recipe is that it’s not mushy in the center, it’s absolutely perfect!

You won’t need any extra butter or topping for this bread. It is so scrumptious just as is.
