Slices of Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

The Best Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread Around

Alison Needham
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.

  • 3 mini loaf pans or 1 9x4 inch loaf pan



  • 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.
  • Place the shredded zucchini into some paper towels and gently squeeze out any moisture. Fluff the zucchini with a fork and set aside.
  • 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, vanilla and walnuts. Whisk thoroughly until smooth.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then carefully turn out to cool completely on a rack.


This loaf can absolutely be made in a standard 9x4 inch loaf pan. Increase the cooking time to 50-60 minutes.
