This low carb and keto zucchini bread is made with almond flour and is perfectly moist. Make it savory or sweet and walnuts, blueberries or chocolate chips can be added for extra flavor and crunch. I also give instructions for freezing.
This Keto Zucchini Bread requires only 7 ingredients and uses only 1 bowl. Plus it can be made sweet or savory and I give instructions for adding blueberries, walnuts, or chocolate chips!
Zucchini is a keto staple as it can be turned into all sorts of things like pasta noodles, taco shells, etc. I bet you probably have at least 1 zucchini in your fridge right now.
Grab that zucchini and let's make this bread. Let me show you how it's done!
SHRED ZUCCHINI AND SQUEEZE OUT THE LIQUID
Lets start by shredding our zucchini. This is easily done with a box grater and the zucchini shreds up in no time.
Now we need to squeeze out the liquid by placing our shredded zucchini in a clean dish towel and squeezing it. Try and get out as much liquid as possible and set that aside.
- This ensures your zucchini bread isn't too wet.
Now let's move on to the dry ingredients. That would be the almond flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and the sweetener. Add all of those to a large bowl and mix with a fork or whisk.
- If you want a savory zucchini bread, simply leave out the sweetener and cinnamon if desired.
Now we can add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Just toss the melted butter, eggs, and grated zucchini right on top of the dry ingredients and give it a good mix.
- All of the measurements can be found in the recipe card below.
Now it's time to bake!
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray. Pour in the zucchini bread mixture and bake in a 350F oven for about 1 hour. A toothpick will come out clean when it is finished.
This Keto Zucchini Bread is magnificent with zucchini in every bite!
ADDING WALNUTS, BLUEBERRIES, OR CHOCOLATE CHIPS
If you want to add some extra sweetness, you can add sugar free chocolate chips or blueberries. Of course, this would alter the nutrition information so please be aware of that.
To add walnuts or chocolate chips, measure out ½ cup and fold them in to the batter right before baking.
To add blueberries, measure out 1 cup and fold into the batter right before baking.
To freeze this zucchini bread whole, let it cool completely and then wrap in plastic wrap, followed by foil. Place in the freezer and keep frozen up to 4 months. When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and let thaw on the counter. It should thaw pretty fast.
To freeze this healthy zucchini bread in individual slices, let cool completely and refrigerate overnight. Slice into individual slices and wrap each one in plastic wrap. Place wrapped slices in a freezer bag or freezer safe container and freeze for up to 4 months. When ready to eat, remove as many slices as you like and let thaw on the counter.
MAKING ZUCCHINI BREAD MUFFINS
This batter is the perfect amount to make 12 regular sized muffins. Divide the batter evenly in the muffin tin and bake in a 35oF oven until a toothpick comes out clean. About 18-20 minutes.

I made muffins and added walnut pieces. They turned out to be amazing! (I only used 1/4 of sweetener)
Kim Worthy says
I made zucchini muffins yesterday morning. They were a little crumbly. Today they’re better than they were yesterday, more firm and not crumbly. My opinion store them for a day before eating.
Mary Smith says
BEST RECIPE .Was absolutely delicious. This is my go to recipe . The only thing I did different was I added 1/4 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla
Just took these muffins out of the oven. My house smells so good. They are AMAZING! I followed the recipe exactly with nuts and I am so grateful right now. I've been following the Keto lifestyle for almost 3 months and was really starting to miss my nut breads. Thank you ♥️
Is the carb count the same in a muffin vs one slice of bread?
Delicious! Even husband loves it.
Nicole Cogdill says
I made this last night. It was so incredibly moist and delicious. It seriously did NOT taste any different than one made with sugar and flour. Kudos for an amazing recipe! Side note: I used 1/4 c allulose and 1/4 c ethyritol, added 1/4 c walnuts, doubled the cinnamon and used 1/4 c avocado oil as I was out of butter.
John Masterson says
Wow impressive! Just made the muffins... DELICIOUS! First of your recipes I have tried. Doubled cinnamon as some suggested. Now I'm looking for a donut recipe on your site! Well done!
Cheryl Newey says
This was so easy and delicious!! Thank you for sharing
Brenda L. Smitherman says
This zucchini bread was amazing. I did tweak a bit. I added a fat 1/4 cup of coconut flour and 4 oz. of cream cheese and an extra 1/2 cup of zucchini. than that followed recipe exactly , it was browning rapidly so I turned oven down to 335 for last 20 minutes.
You look good did you eat any dessert when you first started keto I love all of your recipes and I want to louse some weight to
Just put mine in the oven, can’t hardly wait!
I made this and brought it to a party yesterday, and numerous people commented on how good it was. It's probably the best zucchini bread I've ever made!
Susan N. says
This is a great recipe y today and I highly recommend it. I did one loaf with half the sweetener and added half cup of 60% cocoa chips and 12 muffins with one pecan on top. They are moist and a hit with my 5yo grandson. The added protein powder is a great suggestion as I read on one of the comments.
Make this, you will not be sorry. It will be a regular in the house
Delicious recipe. I added a scoop of banana favored protein powder and walnuts. Cooked for only 45 min. It was perfect.
Moist and delicious and helps me use all this zucchini I have!
Tara Thornton says
Amazing the best zucchini bread I have ever had. Thank you for the recipe.
Teresa W. says
I made a loaf of this yesterday and it was the best zucchini bread I've made. I've tried other recipes in the past, and this one was so moist and tasty. My husband loved it! Definitely a keeper. I will be making this again soon.
Best low carb zucchini bread EVER!!! I made it into muffins, added walnuts, a few fruit sweetened dried cranberries, and decreased sweetener to 1/3 cup. Would never know they’re this healthy! Yum!
Is it 1 1/2 cups of grated zucchini before you squeeze it, or after it's been squeezed?
Before you squeeze it
Sooo I might have let them stay in the oven too long because they're a little dark but... I love them! The sugar eaters in my house don't. That's ok. More for mommy!
I uses the recipe as is.
SHARON Harvey says
I made muffins with avocado oil. It didn't have any flavor and was kinda oily. Next time I will use the melted butter..
Should I use fresh blueberries, can I use frozen? Would I need to thaw first before adding frozen?
Amazing zucchini bread recipe. Added the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips as suggested.
Made three loaves of this yesterday and it's nearly gone today.
I added some vinalla and walnuts to mine, otherwise followed the recipe to a T.
Super yummy, and moist.
I like eating mine cold, it reminds me of a muffin.
If it's warm, it does feel a bit greasy but it still delicious!
Jonilyn Ramos says
Delicious but mine came out darker than the picture. Followed the instructions exactly as written. I added the sugar free chocolate chips and it made it super chocolate yummy. Next time though I think I'll add more sweetener. Still seemed a little bland with 1/2 cup.
Hi! Is the cup and a half of zucchini before or after the water is squeezed out? Thank you!
Love these! I’m wondering how long they (muffins) will stay good in the refrigerator before needing to be frozen?
I always refrigerate my baked goods made with these types of ingredients and good in fridge for a week or so, then I vacuum seal and freeze them. I take them out of fridge or freezer, thaw and eat, or microwave for about 20-30 seconds. Yum!
Marie Burges says
Could you use a mixture of different seeds, like sunflower, chia, nuts etc., love you're channel 🤗
I put pistachios in mine!
Ann Marie Oliver says
Terrific very moist
Daria Klimova says
I love your recipes! Always so easy and delicious 🙂
Have you tried using Lupin Flour for Low-carb baked goods? I ordered some recently but can't find any good recipes online.
Hi, thanks somuch for the muffin directios. I'm the only keto in my family. Farmers market extra zuchini. Gonna make the muffins plain stir cinnomon and nuts in 4 blueberries in 4 and 1/4 tsp banana extract a chips in 4.
I've made this a few times with blueberries and it came out really good, however I just made the loaf exactly like the recipe and there is this weird chemical smell/taste to it. I've read about baking soda causing ammonia smell (I can actually feel it after taking a bite when breathing out my nose). Any suggestions/ideas as to why this is happening? Thanks
I have no idea
Verónica Lugo says
Such an amazing recipe!!! I’ve made this 5 times already and has totally helped with my sugar cravings. Totally recommend 100% (btw I doubled the cinnamon portion and it totally made a difference) Thank you for blessing us with such an amazing recipe!!
Carol L says
Fantastic! I made them just like you said. I did the muffin version. They were moist without being soggy. Will definitely do again.
I've made this recipe several times and it's really lovely, and a hit with the few that have tried it (still in lockdown so I'm not getting the chance to share my creations here). I've tried w/a tad of vanilla added as well w/monkfruit and it's nice, and not too sweet. My question tho is that the color of my loaf is always a real dark brown, not golden like yours. Is this just a lighting thing w/the photo or am I missing something?
Robin Whiting says
Delicious! Will definitely make again. I did double the cinnamon and added nutmeg, chopped walnuts and Lily’s no sugar added semi-sweet chocolate chips only because that’s how I make my regular zucchini bread. I also put my baking cooling rack on top of the loaf after it cooled and used it as a guide to cut 12 equal slices.
Just made this with 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips and WOW it was awesome! Really so good! In my no frills oven it was baked in only 45 minutes though.. if I left it in for 60 minutes would have been overcooked/burnt.
Lea Andra Klimp says
Love this, just made a fresh loaf and it’s delicious.
This looks delicious I'm going to try it this week .
I'm wondering, where did you get your 8x4 pans? I've been looking everywhere and even ordered some from Wilton only to find out they were 8.5x4.5. There was a typo on their site. They apologized but the order had already been shipped. 🙁
Chuck Schulz says
I made this yesterday. Added blueberries to it and it is AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
This is such a simple and easy recipe to make and the zucchini bread turned out amazing! Will definitely be making it again and again! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
I’m definitely making this tomorrow! But I ran out of monk fruit sweetener. Can I use organic maple syrup as the same ratio?
This is such a simple and easy recipe to make and the zucchini bread turned out amazing! Will definitely be making it again and again! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Daya Cabasi says
I didn’t squeeze the juice out of the grated zucchini and made the bread very moist. This is so easy to make. Delicious.
I did squeeze out the zucchini and it was still very moist! the one thing I was a little bothered by was mine came out dark! about halfway through I covered it with foil. it looked nothing like the picture in the recipe! BUT is very good!
The bread seemed a little dry when I was mixing it. I added whipping cream about 1/2 cup to the recipe and wow, it is so good and moist. I did add walnuts and extra cinnamon and you would never thing it was made with almond flour. Will make again. Thank you for sharing.
I made this today and it was absolutely delicious! I cut into12 slices and it looked beautiful!!!
I was looking for a quick keto bread to eat with Christmas dinner and after testing many recipes this one was the winner! I made it savory by adding 1/4 tsp each thyme, pepper, garlic and onion powder. I also added in 1/4 cup collagen and 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum for a light fluffy texture.
I made this today for the first time and it is amazing!!! I added walnuts and unsweetened chocolate chips. It was perfect! Thank you!
Denise F. says
Thank you for this lovely recipe! I added banana extract as well as fresh roasted macadamia nuts and it turned out great! I also make muffins instead of a loaf. 350 for 22 minutes did the trick! Merry Christmas and Stay Safe 🙂
Sandra Ellis says
Loved the zucchini Bread.
This recipe totally did not work for me. It tasted too baking soda like ( I think my baking soda was old) and it formed a hard crust. Did I leave it in too long? I will try again because I really want to love it.
Mike I says
I believe you are using baking powder instead of baking soda
I make this often and I’ve compared it to other keto zucchini bread recipes and this one wins hands down. I currently have it in the oven now, but I added nutmeg and 1/2 cup of mixed seeds/nuts (pumpkin, sunflower, coconut, walnuts). My first attempt at muffins with the recipe. Thanks Jen!
I have made these muffins twice. They never ride I thought it was my baking powder, but I bought a brand new one. So why are my muffins not rising ?
I am not sure. I never have that issue.
Tonya L danko says
Is it baking powder or soda it says soda and i just put muffins in oven i hope its soda!!
The recipe calls for baking soda, not baking powder.
Love it. I did ut 1 cup zucchini and 1/2 cup carrot and didnt squeeze out just set in strainer until all other was done. Very tasty. Thank you
Made this today! Delicious! My 15 year old son who would NEVER eat zucchini tried it & loved it! Great recipe!
Delicious! I tripled the cinnamon. This will be my go to recipe. Thank you!
I am excited to make this! Have you ever added protein powder to this?
Mike I says
Not Jen here but you probably could! Problem is for Keto, you have to be careful with the amount of protein you take in. It doesn't work the same as eating non Keto.
Really good! I used 1/4 c Swerve and it was just right 🙂
I made this recipe and it was great!! Everyone loved it!!
Hi Jennifer- I am so excited to make this, especially after reading all of the amazing reviews! I see that the net carbs are 5g per slice- do you know the total carbs for each serving of this bread? Thank you!
Total carbs is 5. Net carbs is 3
Thanks for this great recipe, this was my first approach to Zucchini-baking.
I did not squeeze the Zucchini, and it was still very dry. I put in cocoa powder to do chocolate muffins, that might have taken the moisture out of the recipe.
They did not rise at all, so I will replace with what we call backing powerder here. Would adding 1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar help activating the Natron?
They tast great, but need some work on the looks, to make sure the kids give them a try 🙂
Dena B. says
Just made this and it's delish!! I doubled the cinnamon and glad I did. Used Truvia as my sweetener. Delicious keto friendly zuc bread!!
Hi, the title before I opened your link listed 5 net carbs but in reading the nutrition it looks like 3. Can you please confirm?
The recipe is correct
Diana Giampietro says
I love this Zucchini bread. Thank you so much for the recipe.
Could I add a cup of pumpkin puree?
If so would I need to add more Almond flour and baking soda?
Sherry Thacker says
Could you make this and use pumpkin?
That would add too much moisture
Jackie Gramatas says
I made the bread last night and it was amazing! I was totally surprised at how moist. I added a few blueberries. However, I will use smaller loaf pan next time... YUM
Brenda Jarrell says
My daughters put this together one afternoon with blueberries added into the mix. They made both the loaf and muffins, and both baked well. Both were so good, however, the bread result was a tad more moist than the muffin! BEST zucchini recipe I have had in 66 years! KUDOS to Jennifer Banz for this one! Big HIT!! Thanks so much.
Beatrice J Williams says
I made this zucchini bread today...added pecans a few and some chocolate and pumpkin spice sugar free chips, i used swerve as my sweetnener, i added 2 TBS. Sour cream. This is the bomb!!!! My taste buds cannot tell the difference!!! Keto recipe magnificent!!!!!!?
OMG this was amazing -- I added walnuts and an xtra tsp of cinnamon but DANG got rave reviews from everyone.
I followed this simple recipe but added a little extra cinnamon and chopped walnuts. It was wonderfully moist and spongy.... not a texture I usually get to have on keto! Tomorrow morning I'm going to toast it and add a big slab of Kerrygold butter on top. Note: I live at a high elevation approximately 6000 feet....it needed 15 more minutes to bake. Thanks Jennifer!!
Hi! Wondering if anyone has tried this with a flax egg version to make it vegan? Do you think it would turn out ok?
Knock my socks off ! This was banging!
Made this bread tonight and have happily added the recipe to my favorites. Seriously so flavorful! My husband tried it and couldn’t tell it was low carb (always a win!).
My bread turned out horrible! I made it twice and both times was bad. Idk what I did wrong.
I made a lot of modifications and it still turned out great! I did 1 1/2 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, added 3 tbsp milk, I beat the egg yolks as directed but whipped the egg whites til medium peaks then folded them into the batter at the end to make it lighter and fluffier. Definitely a keeper!
I admit I was skeptical at first, and did not have high hopes! Boy was I shocked when I took my first bite. I am so glad to have found this recipe and love the simplicity of it. After I sliced it, I toasted the top and drizzled a little heavy cream over it, Wow, delicious. Thank you!
I just made it! I chopped up the zucchini and then put it in the blender with the two eggs because I do not have a greater. Then I blended that with the other ingredients and it is moist and delicious. added walnuts and a bit more cinnamon. i used parchment paper in my lips pan and it came out great! can’t wait to slather it in butter and cream cheese and make a hot cup of tea!
JUST WONDERING IF STEVIA WILL CHANGE THE FLAVOR?
It shouldn't as long as you use the right amount. You should use one that is a 1 for 1 substitute for sugar
I just made this almond flour zucchini bread I added one banana,I have a small counter oven. The bread only rose half way and cooked very fast was done at 350 in 40 min. Taste fine and is moist but only 2 inches thick. I also added just a tbs of honey in place of sweetener. I used the 1 tsp. Baking Soda asked for. I double checked.
It's because you added so much extra moisture. The extra banana would do that. You would have probably needed to add more almond flour and more baking soda.
Evelyn Watchorn says
Can I use avocado oil instead of butter?
That will work! It will change the flavor but it will be more of an olive oil cake.
Sandra Garland says
Taste is good but there is no way this batter "pours" into loaf pan, it's very thick. The bread is crumbly and the loaf is maybe an 1 1/2 inches high, not very bread like.
Most of the others that have made this have had no problem. You used almond flour?
Jacque Glenn says
Made this last night and it was WONDERFUL! Great taste and texture. Headed to the farmers market to pick up more zucchini tomorrow!
Sandy Conrad says
I made these muffins, added blueberries, they were great. I will be making these again.
