This delicious gluten-free zucchini bread is so good with just the right amount of spice and the zucchini making it extremely moist.



3 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar*
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup avocado oil or vegetable oil**
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups gluten-free flour blend***
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded zucchini (2 medium zucchinis)

Optional additions: 1 1/2 cups of gluten-free chocolate chips, walnuts, or pecans. 


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease two loaf pans (8.5 x 4.5-inch) with cooking spray or line the bottom of the pans with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk the dry ingredients together.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and sugars. Then add the oil and vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Fold the shredded zucchini into the batter and mix until combined.
  • Pour evenly into the prepared loaf pans.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes until a toothpick test comes out clean.
  • Let the loaves cool in the pans on a wire rack for ten minutes and then remove them from the pan and place them on the wire rack to cool.
  • Can be served warm or cold.

Once they are completely cool store them in a sealed bag, plastic wrap, or foil for up to two days. After that refrigerate for up two to three more days. Can be frozen for up to three months wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and then placed in a freezer bag.


*I did lower the amount of sugar for this recipe. If you want a sweeter bread add an additional 1/4 cup of each sugar. 

**You can also use half oil and half applesauce if you prefer.

***Gluten-Free Flour: My favorite gluten-free & dairy-free flour blends to use are Better Batter and Pamela’s Artisan Blend. I’ve been using them both with great results. They are both a 1-1 substitute. If you use another gluten-free flour blend be sure that it contains xanthan gum. If it doesn’t have it add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum per cup of gluten-free flour.
