I love to use simple ingredients that most people have on hand in their pantry, refrigerators, or gardens to create foods that focus on heath but still taste great!

Store-bought oat flour can be pricey, if you have oats (old fashioned, steel cut etc.) on hand and a high powered blender, you can make your own oat flour for a faction of the cost! Simply add the oats to the blender and blend on high until a fine flour is achieved. It’s best to blend the oats right before you use them instead of storing the flour for future use so you reap all the benefits of the flour at the peak of its nutrient content.

Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (if celiac make sure the package says certified gluten-free)
  • 3/4 cup packed super fine almond flour (meaning, pack the flour into the cup tightly)
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar or organic cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 medjool dates (pitted)
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Ghee or butter, for greasing

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, add the oat flour, almond flour, palm sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix together.
  • Add the eggs, dates, oil, and water to a blender and blend on medium low until the date pieces are very fine. Do not over blend the eggs.
  • Add blended wet mixture to dry ingredients along with lemon juice, zucchini, and walnuts. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Grease a 2 pound loaf pan with ghee and pour in the zucchini mixture. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and let cool for 45 minutes before slicing.

Notes

Note: Make sure to give the bread time to cool. Otherwise you might experience some crumbling. The cooling time allows the bread to all bind together like it should.
Note: If you are nut free, you can substitute cassava flour for almond flour 1:1 and add a 1/2 cup of milk of choice.

    1. If you are nut free you can sub cassava flour for the almond flour 1:1 and add a 1/2 cup milk of choice.

    Oh my goodness! This is so yummy! Even my hubs approves! Instead of making one large loaf, I made 4 small loaves. How long do you think I can freeze a loaf? I have a lot of leftover medjool dates as well, can I freeze them? If so, how long?

    1. Hello Kelly,
      I have not tested the recipe with erythritol, so I don’t know if it would work as a substitute.
      Wishing you all the best!

  2. Does the original recipe call for oat flour or almond flour? I see the sub for nut free but the actual recipe lists oat flour, not almond flour?

    1. Hello Jenny,
      The recipe calls for both oat flour (1 1/2 cups) and almond flour (3/4 cups superfine and tightly packed). Hope that helps clarify and confusion. 🙂

      1. Hello Sharon,
        I have not tested the recipe without the dates, so I am not sure if they can be substituted with anything else.
        Wishing you all the best!

    I followed this recipes exactly as written.
    It is delicious! The whole family enjoyed it. Definitely a keeper. Super moist and a real treat. My only problem with it is eating only one slice! Thank you for sharing your new recipe.

    I made this zucchini bread today and love it! I am so thankful to get a really good recipe that does not use wheat flour. Also, I didn’t have dates on hand so substituted with one banana that worked out well. I didn’t have the oat flour but I had oats and the blender did the job within seconds to getting oat flour.

  5. I made this today and we all loved it. It was, though, a bit crumbly, even after I let it cool more than an hour before we sliced it. Any suggestions to help with this? Maybe I did too much or not enough of something or added more or less than I should of something?

      I had a similar issue. I’ve never made anything gluten free so I don’t have much experience with it so I’m unsure if I did something wrong. But the flavor was delicious and I’ll definitely be making it again.

      I did use zucchini that I had previously shredded and then froze. So when it dethawed I drained out a lot of excess liquid. Wondering if that could have possible made a difference.

  6. Hi, I am very interested in your recipes! Do you list the nutritional info? In reviewing some of your online recipes and cookbook, I did not see this info. I am considering buying the cookbook, but would like to know the basic calorie/carb/fat count. Perhaps I just missed it or didn’t scroll enough?

    1. Hello Teresa,
      Thank you for reaching out! I do not include the calorie count or nutritional information on any of my recipes. All ingredients have different nutritional information so it will always vary depending on the exact ingredients (brands) you’re using. If you need to track nutritional information it’s best to calculate it for each recipe with your own ingredients into a program like MyFitness Pal because it can vary A LOT.
      Wish you all the best!

    1. Hello Michelle,
      Yes you can leave out the walnuts. Also if you are nut free, you can substitute cassava flour for almond flour 1:1 and add a 1/2 cup of milk of choice.

    Best Zucchini bread recipe ever! Just made this today, followed recipe as written only variation, added almonds to complete the amount of walnuts as I didn’t have enough,also didn’t have nutmeg so left it out, will add next time. I baked mine in muffin tins for portion control and got 18 using 1/4 of batter, baked at the same temp nad for about 30-35 minutes. This will be another instantloss recipe on repeat! Thanks Britt

  8. I wish that you would add nutritional information like serving size and calories. Your recipes are inspiring and look delicious!

    Great cookbooks. I only have one and the instapot is amazing for these. Tried a bunch of the recipes.
    Love the spicy tomato soup. And so healthy.

  10. What can I replace the palm sugar with? None of the stores in my area carry palm sugar? Any suggestions will be so appreciated!

    1. Hi Corey,
      Thanks for reaching out. They carry coconut sugar at Target and Walmart. If you happen to live close to either one of those stores. But if all hope is lost brown sugar is a one to one sub for coconut sugar although that is not my favorite thing to do.

    I just made this today and it is delicious. I baked it in my toaster oven since I don’t have an oven and I should of reduced the time just a little bit. I’ll be eating this for breakfast and possibly dessert all week long 😀
