This Keto zucchini bread is a so delicious you will never feel like you are missing out! It is filling and satisfying. In the flavor department it is so amazing you will never know that it is also low-carb. Zucchini add to a fluffy but moist texture of the bread. It is slightly sweet and just plain delicious.
Great with butter or cream cheese and is a wonderful compliment to your morning cup of coffee or tea. It also makes a great snack.
I have made this particular recipe with coconut flour in order to make it not only Keto but also nut-free. My husband is allergic to most of the nuts and I was trying to bake something delicious but at the same time wholesome and nutritious. This is a perfect recipe for that.
But you can use any gluten-free or Keto-friendly flour. Baking without gluten can get a little bit tricky since gluten is the component that holds everything together. So it is very important to use the correct gluten-free flour. Combination of flours work best! Fortunately, it’s getting easier and easier to find a variety of alternative flours. You can find them in the natural foods section of any large supermarket or online. Gluten gives breads their soft spongy texture. To replace gluten, you’ll need to use other thickeners like xanthan gum or guar gum in your baking. Look for flours that have it in them.
I am using coconut flour in this recipe mostly due to the nut allergies. but it is also lower cost than almond flour and has less inflammatory properties. If you are on a Keto diet it add up fast. coconut flour is basically ground nuts, full of fat and moisture, entirely without gluten and not nearly as powdery, fine and dry as wheat flour.
Coconut flour gives the bread a delicate nutty aroma and some extra protein to bind everything together.
Trust me it just works! And it is a great compliment to the moist delicately flavored zucchini. They carry out the coconut flavors beautifully.
