Tested this one multiple times until it came out PERFECT. I know you're going to love it, plus it's gluten-free, refined sugar-free and dairy-free! If you're trying to use up your garden zucchinis like I am, give this a go 🙂


  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 mashed ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup almond butter, (any nut or seed butter to substitute)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini, then drained + squeezed
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate dairy-free chips, plus more for the topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk or use electric mixer for all wet ingredients (everything through vanilla extract).
  • Shred zucchini and measure out in 2 cups. Fold paper towels about 4x, or use kitchen towel, and squeeze out all the liquid before adding to the mixing bowl. Whisk again until thoroughly mixed.
  • Next, gently fold in the dry ingredients, just enough until fully combined (don’t over stir!! It may not rise).
  • Prep loaf tin with parchment paper, then pour in batter. Top with chocolate chips then bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool for AT LEAST 40 minutes before you dive in. Trust me, it’s worth the wait! 😉

    You know when you cook “healthy” recipes and they’re palatable, but it’s just not that great? This was NOT IT! Oh my god it was SO GOOD!! I will be making this often. I can’t believe it’s healthy. Delicious!

  2. I tried this with flax eggs to make it vegan, and it deflated in the center. It tasted AMAZING, but I just wanted to leave a little note for any other vegan friends out there! Thanks for the recipe!

    This is the best zucchini bread ever. Even my husband, who is the pickiest eater and won’t eat anything healthy, loves it. I’ve made this 5 times now in the past few months and it’s even requested by my picky husband. Hands down the best recipe you’ll ever find.

    Brilliant recipe! It was so delicious. I added some walnuts for some extra crunch. Will definitely make it again 🙂

    Absolutely delicious and addicting! Words of warning…according to my fitness pal app, the entire loaf of bread is 2303 calories (and I only used 1/3c chocolate chips instead of 1/2 cup), so it is definitely not a low calorie food.

    Made muffins – baked for 35-40 mins and came out perfect! Put a 1/2 dark choc disk on top vs. the chips. Best zucchini bread, hands down.
