Fluffy and moist gluten free zucchini bread. When I asked my husband to help me describe this post, those were the words that he gave me! I think I should also mention that he grew up in Germany around bakeries and he LOVES bread of all kinds. So for him to say this bread is fluffy and moist? Well that just goes to show that it’s pretty amazing. Haha!

In the YouTube video linked above, I said that this was my Mom’s recipe. I was chatting with her about it today though, and she said that the recipe actually came from her Mom, my Grandma, who passed away in 2003. I love that so much, because you’ll see at the end of the video that we delivered some bread to her husband, my Grandpa, who lives right behind us now. I hope the bread brought back some fond memories for him. 🙂

Now I’ll be honest, I have been making this recipe for over ten years now, and I just recently switched over to the gluten free version. It’s simple really, you just switch out the flour in the recipe for your favorite cup for cup gluten free flour blend. That’s it! No other adjustments necessary.

I have tried so many gluten free flour blends, and I have a few favorites. I’ll link them for you here and here if you’re interested in grabbing them! 

I also have an amazing banana bread recipe here on the blog as well that’s just as delicious, and come to find out, it’s another one of my grandma’s recipes!

I love this bread so much, and we usually make it every fall when our neighbors and family members have an abundance of zucchini from their gardens that they are desperate to give away!

A few things to note…

Once I have the zucchini, I usually have all of the other ingredients for this bread on hand. I have seen a few other zucchini bread recipes in that the liquid is pressed or squeezed from the shredded zucchini, but I have never done that in all my years making this. In fact, sometimes if I have a little extra zucchini I’ll just throw it in the mixture, and the bread always comes out just fine.

Another thing I thought I would mention, is that I usually switch out the vegetable oil in the recipe for coconut oil, just because it’s healthier. Vegetable works too, though!

I hope you enjoy this delicious, gluten free zucchini bread! Here’s the simple recipe –

    Hello Andrea! I was reading your pregnancy update from August 2021 and I had to hop on here to let you know that you inspired me to try this bread (with some tweaking because of what I had in the house) and it is delicious! I halved the recipe for only one small/med zucchini and I used 1 cup of Bob’s one to one gluten free flour and 1/2 cup almond flour. I used coconut oil as you suggested and everything else the same except I added 1/2 tsp of cardamon which gave it a special flavor. The bread turned out moist and so comforting. Thank you for sharing.
    Best wishes on you delivery and may God bless you and your beautiful family.

  7. Hi Andrea – thank you so much for sharing this wonderful zucchini bread. The recipe looks very good and easy to follow. I am so glad i found your website and will make this recipe today.
