Healthy Breakfast Zucchini Bread (Dairy-free, Soy-free & No Refined Sugar)

Healthy Breakfast Zucchini Bread (Dairy-free, Soy-free & No Refined Sugar)

Hi friends!

Taking a break from all the pumpkin and sweet potato recipes being made in my kitchen to bring you a lighter zucchini bread recipe! Clearly I like hiding some extra veggies into my baking. Why not right? More fiber and vitamins & minerals for me! & you because you should be making these recipes asap!  I was trying to make this recipe a bit more of a savoury bread that could be paired with some avocado and bacon or jam if you were feeling your sweet tooth that day.

This bread is dairy-free, soy free and doesn’t contain any refined sugar.  It does contain gluten from the whole wheat flour but if needed, you could substitute with a gluten-free baking blend or more almond flour but I haven’t tried these substitutions. Unfortunately, some gluten-free baking bread is super dense so if you sub with it, proceed at your own risk!! 🙂

I topped the bread with walnuts for some crunchy goodness but you could also use pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips, coconut etc.

Healthy Breakfast Zucchini Bread (Dairy-free, Soy-free & No Refined Sugar)

Yield: 10 slices

Healthy Breakfast Zucchini Bread (Dairy-free, Soy-free & No Refined Sugar)

Ingredients

    Dry ingredients
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oats (quick, steel cut or rolled)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (more if you want a sweeter bread)
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
    Wet ingredients
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice, vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (packed - squeeze out excess water)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    Optional add ins:
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (reserve 2 tbsp for topping)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Grate zucchini and squeeze out the water with your hands. You can use a cheese cloth or just do it 1 handful at a time (very important step!). Add to large bowl.
  3. Melt coconut oil in the microwave. Add coconut oil to zucchini blow and mix remaining wet ingredients together.
  4. Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and lightly combine. Fold in walnuts (reserving the topping), if using.
  6. Transfer to lined loaf pan, top with 2 tbsp walnuts, if using.
  7. Bake for 45-60 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing.
  8. Top with jam or eat as is! Enjoy and store in the refrigerator.

Notes

Ensure to squeeze the water out of the grated zucchini or the bread will be very soggy. This bread isn't really meant to be a sweet bread but rather one that can be used as a sweet or savory bread depending on the toppings. If you want it more like a dessert bread, add more coconut sugar!

Note: You could also substitute butter or almond butter for coconut oil if you don't have it on hand.
