Zucchini Nut Bread (Keto Friendly)
This Zucchini Nut Bread is Keto Friendly and tastes great. I have tried and shared a few of our keto recipesBuffalo Chicken Tenders, CrockPot Creamy Mushroom Chicken and Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms. Now I am trying to branch out and try some bread and desserts. Zucchini Nut Bread was fairly easy to make and my family loved it.
I will always remember being a little girl and our neighbor coming over and giving my mother a recipe for Zucchini Bread. Every one of my siblings and I said zucchini bread? That’s gross.
However, when she made said zucchini bread our tune changed in a hurry. From that point forward we all loved it. In fact, we used to shred zucchini in the summer and freeze it. That allowed my mother to make it over the holidays and throughout the winter. After we were all grown I remember my sister bringing this family zucchini bread recipe to a thanksgiving I hosted. Both my husband’s family and mine were there. Guess what happened? My husband and his brothers said zucchini bread? That sounds gross haha. Needless to say, they were hooked and couldn’t quit raving about Dixie’s zucchini nut bread.
When I started looking for keto recipes for bread, I realized I had zucchini in the refrigerator that needed to be used. Let the recipe search begin. I found several so took a little bit of each one.
To make this Zucchini Nut Bread you will need zucchini, eggs, butter, coconut oil, stevia or sweetener of choice. In addition, you will need brown Truvia or stevia, vanilla extract, maple extract (or I subbed sugar-free maple syrup) almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking powder, xanthan gum, baking soda, cinnamon, and walnuts. It looks like a lot of ingredients but they all throw together fairly quickly.
