Paleo Zucchini Bread

Paleo Zucchini Bread - Wellness Bakeries

Are you looking for a super-simple, Paleo zucchini bread recipe that’s also low in carbohydrates? You’ve come to the right place.

While zucchini bread may earn the reputation of being “healthy” thanks to the summertime squash that’s in it, most of these veggie-laden loaves are packed with starch and sugar.

In fact, a single serving of Starbucks Zucchini Bread Muffin contains 490 calories, 52 grams of carbohydrate and 28 grams of sugar.

And take a look at the ingredients:

Flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), zucchini, canola oil, whole eggs, sugar, brown sugar, walnuts, raisin syrup (raisins, water), spice, sea salt, natural flavor, water, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, cornstarch, monocalcium phosphate)

Unfortunately, even grain-free Paleo zucchini bread recipes can also be very high in sugar and carbs, thanks to the honey, bananas or dates that are often used for sweetening.

But not this one…

Low Carb Paleo Zucchini Bread (with Just 1 Gram of Sugar!)

Our super-simple version of the classic summer bread is moist and lightly sweet, with just 170 calories, two net carbs and just one gram of sugar. It makes the perfect snack or after-meal treat and it’s suitable for low-carb and even ketogenic diets.

If you prefer, you can punch up the sweetness in our basic recipe with half a teaspoon of liquid stevia and two teaspoons of cinnamon. Or you can make it a more savory bread by adding a tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme and a tablespoon of lemon juice.

For best results, let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack after baking. Then remove it from the pan and allow to cool completely on wire rack. Then slice, toast and serve with a pat of grass-fed butter.

Now let me show you how simple it is to make…

    Thank you for this recipe but I live in Europe and you don’t ship there, so how can get this wondrous mixture??? And what is it exactly…. Could one get it in Europe from somewhere else?
    Thanks for your answer…..!!

    Your recipes are wonderfully health giving alternatives. It’s unfortunate that those of us outside the US are unable to obtain “miracle mix” or be given alternatives to be able to bake them.

      Hi Dianne,
      Thank you for your comment.

      We appreciate our international customers and are working hard to get Wellness Bakeries distributed outside of the US.

      In the meantime, please check out our books, Guilt Free Desserts (www.guiltfreedesserts.net) and Better Breads (www.betterbreads.net), which provide homemade grain-free, low glycemic recipes with the same ingredients we use here at Wellness Bakeries.

      Be Well,
      Kelley

        As this recipe is Paleo I am assuming no wheat flour is used. I will try it with coconut flour and baking powder as I live in Western Australia and Miracle Mix is not available here.

          Hi Gwen,
          A word of caution: If you use coconut flour to try and replace a recipe that is primarily almond flour it will be dry and dense. You will need a lot more eggs and liquid.
