What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • It’ll have you questioning everything you thought you knew about bread! Such as, how is it possible to have BREAD on a keto diet?! My advice – don’t question it, just enjoy it.
  • It’s delightfully moist and perfectly sweet. Brown Swerve provides a decadent caramel flavor, with 0 calories and 0 net carbs!
  • It’s totally customizable! Feel free to add your favorite chopped nuts or even a handful of keto chocolate chips for a treat you won’t be able to stop eating.

Key Ingredients

Zucchini – Run a medium-large zucchini across a cheese grater until you acquire a full cup of grated zucchini. The key to baking with zucchini is removing as much water from the zucchini as possible before mixing it in with the batter. I recommend doing this by wrapping the grated zucchini in a kitchen towel then squeezing it over the sink.

Almond Flour – Almond flour is a keto bakers best friend! It’s low in net carbs, though gives this recipe its delicious crumbly texture. Avoid using almond meal, since almond flour is finer and lighter, which makes it the ideal base for this keto zucchini bread bread.

Xanthan Gum – Just a half teaspoon of xanthan gum provides crucial structure and great texture to this bread. Do not leave this ingredient out, and be careful not to add any additional xanthan gum than what the recipe calls for.

Chef’s Tips

  • To freeze this keto zucchini bread, let it cool completely then wrap it in plastic wrap. Then transfer it to the freezer where it will stay good for up to four months!
  • Don’t over-mix the batter! Over-mixing will give you an unappealingly dense loaf of bread. Simply stir until just combined and then fold in the zucchini and walnuts.
  • I highly recommend serving a thick slice of this bread slightly warm and slathered in butter. Creamy, savory butter is the perfect topping to this sweet zucchini bread!

  1. May I ask how it’s only 1 net carb? Total carb 10, total fiber 3, sugar 1 . . I dont understand how we reach 1 net carb? Waiting on xantham gum to make the recipe!!! Excited about it. Thank you for your time!

    1. Hi, Camila! Great question! Like fiber, the erythritol doesn’t affect your blood sugar in the same way as other carbs, so you can subtract it out, too. 10g total carbs – 3g fiber – 6g erythritol = 1g net carbs!
