Zucchini Bread

Jump To Recipe

A friend of mine made zucchini bread the other week, so I thought I’d play around with one too after the inspiration.  I had a couple zucchini from the garden that needed to be used and I also wanted a zucchini bread that was gluten free and refined sugar free.  I’ve been reading a lot about buckwheat flour and it’s nutritional value as opposed to other gluten free alternatives.  What I’ve found is that while it is pretty calorie dense for a relatively small amount, it’s high in fiber and protein.  Always a plus for us vegetarians.  It also has a really earthy flavor to it.  I don’t mind an earthy flavor, but I know it’s not up everyone’s alley, so I just wanted to give a fair warning.  You can mix it with other gluten free flours for a lighter texture for things like pancakes and muffins.

To sweeten the zucchini bread, I used a combo of date sugar and coconut sugar that I found at the health food store.  If you’ve not used either of these before in place of regular sugar, definitely try them out.  Basically it’s dates (or coconut) that have been dried and then ground up in a spice or coffee grinder.  You could easily make these at home if you wanted to.  They aren’t going to be as sweet as regular sugar, but not a bad replacement if you ask me.:)
