Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread
My husband made lasagna using zucchini as the “noodles” the other day and we ended up with one zucchini leftover. One. What the heck do you do with one zucchini? You make gluten-free zucchini bread, of course.
Zucchini, unlike bananas, don’t add flavor to bakes goods. They mostly add moisture, and some much needed vitamins. Sometimes you get a veggie-like flavor, but not in this gluten free zucchini bread recipe.
When my kids asked me what I was making, and I told them gf zucchini bread and they turned their little noses up at me. I had to explain to them that zucchini bread doesn’t taste like zucchini. If you look at the photo below, you can hardly even see the zucchini.
I took them asking me as an excuse to make myself a couple of mini loafs for my trip. I’m not a big breakfast eater, but I do like to enjoy a little bit of something with my coffee in the morning.
Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread Recipe
This gluten-free zucchini bread recipe has the same texture and flavor as glutinous zucchini bread. I used the Ryze yellow bag of flour, which is designed for breads and cakes, and threw a handful of chocolate chips on top of the batter before baking it.
My girls loved the gluten-free zucchini bread and agreed that it did not in fact taste like zucchini. They asked that I mix in the chocolate chips and add more of them next time. I’m not surprised. We love adding gluten-free chocolate chips to this gluten-free zucchini bread recipe.
What other flours can I use to make gluten-free zucchini bread?

Working with Gluten-Free Flours
When working with or measuring gluten-free flour, spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level. Do not scoop your measuring cup into the gluten-free flour. The best method really is to weigh the gluten-free flour but I don’t have the ingredient weights for all my recipes yet.
Do you peel zucchini when you make zucchini bread?
You don’t need to peel zucchini before you make zucchini bread. When you shred the zucchini the peel is fine enough that it softens after cooking.
