How to Make Vegan Gluten Free Zucchini Bread
The steps for making this gluten free vegan zucchini bread are pretty simple. Just remember, you’re making a wonderful quick bread that takes a bit of elbow grease (and box grater muscles!) I hope you love learning how to make gluten free zucchini bread!
Preheat the Oven
The very first thing I do before starting any baked recipe is preheating the oven. Head over to your oven and preheat it to 325°F. Then, line an 8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
Grate the Zucchini
Like any fruit- and vegetable-based bread recipe, this vegan zucchini bread requires a bit of bonding time with the box grater! Here, you’ll be grating enough zucchini for this bread recipe: 1 1/4 cups. I like to do this in advance, so when it’s time to fold the grated zucchini into the batter, you’ll be ready!
Whisk the Dry & Wet Zucchini Bread Ingredients
Now, whisk all the dry ingredients in a bowl: gluten free oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Then, grab a large mixing bowl and add in all of the wet ingredients: coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax eggs and vanilla. Whisk thoroughly.
Combine for the Zucchini Bread Batter!
Now it’s time to combine the two! Pour the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and whisk it all together until no flour patches remain.
Fold in Zucchini & Walnuts
Now, dump in the grated zucchini and walnuts. Make sure to thoroughly fold in the zucchini—no need to be gentle, the zucchini should be almost mashed in. Also, there’s no need to drain it or squeeze out the liquid in the zucchini before folding.
Pour the Vegan Zucchini Bread Batter
Pour your vegan zucchini bread batter into the pan you lined earlier. Smooth the batter out into the shape you’d like—this is how it’ll bake up. 😉
Bake, Cool, Slice & Enjoy the Best Gluten Free Zucchini Bread!
Bake for about 62 minutes, then cool, slice and enjoy the best gluten free zucchini bread!
How to Store
This moist GF zucchini bread recipe is best served on the first day. However, after cooling completely, you can store the zucchini bread in a container in a cool, dark environment or the fridge for 3-5 days. This vegan zucchini bread recipe is best the first 3 days, but splendid the 1st day.
Bec says, “This was delish! By far the best gluten, dairy and egg free recipe I have tried. I subbed in 1/2 cup of honey instead of the sugar and syrup and it was still perfect. I also halved a whole banana and popped that on top. Love it, thank you x”
