Keto Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is one of those vegetables like cauliflower that proves to be extremely versatile and can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. Deliciously healthy and simple to make Keto Zucchini Bread shows just how amazing and versatile zucchini can be. While this bread can be served as a slightly more savory bread, with adjustments to the amount of sweetener you use, it is equally wonderful when served as cake.

This delicious recipe is ideal for anyone trying to watch their carb or sugar intake and fits in with a keto eating plan. Because it has minimal impact on blood sugar levels it’s great for diabetics as well. I slice it and store it in zip lock bags so I have an instant healthy snack on hand. Hubby also loves taking this to work for a treat during the day.

Serving Suggestions

Try a slice of Keto Zucchini Bread on its own for a simple snack or breakfast. Add a little smear of butter for variation, or try my favorite way of eating it by pan frying with butter and eating it hot from the pan. If you want to serve this as a cake, add some Low Carb Cream Cheese Frosting and a scattering of chopped walnuts and you have a cake fit for any occasion.

Olive Oil

As with any cake recipe that features olive oil, make sure you use a light flavored extra virgin olive oil. Make sure that you don’t use a processed “Light Olive Oil”, or you are going to be very disappointed with the flavors.

My favorite oil to use in Australia is the Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the mildest flavor. It works perfectly in baking cakes like this one because it is so mild in flavor. If you struggle to find a mild tasting olive oil, you can also switch the oil for melted butter.

There is also a delicious recipe for a Chocolate Zucchini Cake that has been getting amazing reviews. This is probably one of my favorite cakes and no one would ever guess that it had zucchini in it.

I also recommend you try making this simple Chocolate Olive Oil Cake. Don’t let the olive oil turn you off making this cake as you cannot taste it at all. This recipe is really versatile as well and is absolutely delicious both as a cake and even as a pudding, especially when served with whipped cream or a low carb ice-cream. People who have made this cake keep going to back it. It is surprisingly superb and so simple to make.

If you are after a really decadent Chocolate Cake then make sure you have a look at this recipe for a Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Cake, the piece de resistance of chocolate cakes. The recipe is a bit of a copy cat of one of Ottolenghi’s most famous chocolate cakes and is truly divine.

Keto Zucchini Bread is best eaten within a few days for ultimate freshness. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, allowing to come to room temperature to serve.
Serve with a smear of butter or pan fry in butter in a frying pan. Also tastes delicious and more cake like when topped with cream cheese frosting/icing
Keto Zucchini Bread is ideal to freeze in an airtight bag/container.
Because the base of the bread is made with almonds, the size of the walnut serving is small. Feel free to add more walnuts for more texture and flavor.
Adjust the sweetener to suit your taste- add more for a sweeter bread or less for a more savory bread.
For a cream cheese frosting, check out this recipe for Low Carb Cream Cheese Frosting.

    We love this recipe. Always moist as long as I don’t overbake. I added blueberries, my 21-year-old loves it this way.
