Wonderfully moist and fragrant, this keto zucchini bread is the perfect breakfast. It’s delicious, easy to make, and very filling!
Avocado oil spray for the pan
3medium zucchinis(about 21 oz total weight)
1 1/2teaspoonstevia glycerite(equals about 1/2 cup sugar)
2cupsblanched finely ground almond flour(8 oz)
1/4teaspoonDiamond Crystal kosher salt(or a pinch of fine salt)
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a small loaf pan (8.5 X 4.5 inches) with parchment so that there’s an overhang, as shown in the video below. Lightly spray the lined pan with oil.
Grate the unpeeled zucchinis (I grate them by hand). You should have about 2 cups of grated zucchini.
Place the grated zucchinis in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. You’ll get quite a lot of water out, as you can see in the video!
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, stevia, and vanilla extract.
Using a rubber spatula, mix in the almond flour, cinnamon, kosher salt, and baking soda. Then add the grated zucchini.
Depending on how thorough you were when squeezing the water out of the zucchinis, at this point you might need to add a little water to the mixture. Add one tablespoon at a time until the batter is thick but easy to mix. I typically add 2 tablespoons.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Smooth the top out with a spatula.
Bake the bread until browned and set, and a toothpick inserted in its center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
Using the parchment paper overhang as handles, carefully remove the bread from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack. Carefully remove the parchment, as shown in the video, to allow air to circulate.
Cool the bread on the cooling rack about 1 hour before slicing. Or speed things up by placing it in the fridge, on the cooling rack, for 30 minutes. Don’t try to slice it when it’s warm.
After slicing the bread, if the slices are very moist, place them on the cooling rack for 10 more minutes.
