Betrayal & Love: My Zucchini Soap Opera
When I was a kid, eating vegetables was a horrible, terrible thing to ask me to do. They were bitter and tasted weird. I didn’t like when they were soft and mushy, and I didn’t like when they were crisp and juicy. Gentle and clever, my mother refused to spend her energy coaxing or forcing me to eat them. Instead, she concocted a scheme…
One day I came home from school to one of my favorite treats– A warm, fresh loaf of sweet bread. My Mom watched me devour 2 slices, then sweetly asked if liked it. I said yes. Then she informed me that I was, in fact, eating zucchini bread.
The betrayal. The deceit. The… reluctant… acceptance.
Because the damage was already done, and I had fallen in love with zucchini bread.
That love has remained true. All these years. Culminating in this low carb zucchini bread recipe. Try it yourself and see how quickly you fall in love (no trickery necessary)!
Important Ingredient Notes
- Flour – Almond flour is the best low carb flour for this keto zucchini bread, as it’s most similar in taste and texture to wheat flour. Be sure to purchase fine-grained almond flour for the most “flour-like” results. Bob’s Red Mill or Trader Joe’s brand are my faves.
- Psyllium husk – This is what adds “fluff” to our low carb zucchini bread–without it, almond flour zucchini bread would be dense. I only recommend using NOW powdered psyllium husk, as other brands can turn your baked good a blue-ish purple.
- Sweetener – Lakanto and Swerve are both erythritol-based keto sweeteners, which can be used as a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of erythritol, know that it’s 70% as sweet, so you may want to add more.
- Sugar free chocolate chips – These are optional, but seriously, why skip them?? Low carb chocolate zucchini bread is the best. Grab a bag of Lily’s chocolate chips, they’ve got the best taste/texture.
- Zucchini – Grate it with a cheese grater and dab off some of the excess liquid.
How to Eat
Warm up a slice of low carb zucchini bread and enjoy it with morning coffee… It’s great on its own, but also great with a generous slather of low carb peanut butter or cream cheese. But don’t stop there, this healthy zucchini bread makes great low carb desserts and snacks.
- Add nuts. Chopped pecans or walnuts are delicious low carb nuts to add in.
- Make a savory version by skipping the chocolate chips and erythritol–super moist almond flour bread coming right up!
- Turn these into zucchini bread muffins by pouring the batter into a lined muffin tin pan. Option to add a streusel topping like in my low carb pumpkin muffins or my low carb blueberry muffins.

- Use fine-grained almond flour, such as Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brand for the most flour-like results.
- The only brand of psyllium husk I recommend using is NOW, other products will absorb liquid differently and may through off the structure of this bread.
- This recipe was measured using Lakanto or Swerve. If using a different brand of erythritol, know that most products are 70% as sweet, and you may want to adjust accordingly.
- Lily's chocolate chips are my go-to for baking, as they have my favorite taste/texture.
- Using an 8" bread pan is important if you want your loaf to look as tall as mine in the photos--believe it or not, using a 9" bread pan makes a big difference.
