How to Make Keto Zucchini Bread
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a mixing bowl, add in the almond flour, cocoa powder, oat fiber and baking powder.
Whisk to combine, then set aside.
In a larger mixing bowl, add in the eggs, sweetener, melted butter and vanilla extract.
Mix using a hand mixer until smooth. Add in the dry ingredients, then mix just until combined.
Fold in the grated zucchini. If you're adding in the optional chocolate chips, take ⅔ of them and fold them into the batter.
Bake 45-50 minutes or until cooked through and a toothpick, when inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting into slices.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
Can you Leave Zucchini Bread on the Counter?
Personally, I prefer to store mine in the refrigerator because it extends its freshness. But it will be fine left out on the counter for a day or two.
Can You Freeze Zucchini Bread?
Absolutely! All you have to do is double wrap it in plastic wrap and slip it down in a freezer safe bag. It should stay fresh for up to a few months.
Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Variations
Add-ins: If you like a little extra crunch, you can add about ½ of chopped pecan or walnuts to the bread batter. Another great add-in is espresso powder. It only takes about a teaspoon to really intensify the chocolate flavor.
Optional Toppings: For an extra special touch, you can drizzle the top with sugar free chocolate syrup, or a big dollop of homemade whipped cream.
Serving Suggestions: If you're serving this zucchini bread for breakfast, you could serve it with a simple side of fresh berries. For an afternoon snack, it's so delicious served with a scoop of this sugar free Coffee Chip Ice Cream or this Keto Vanilla Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. But honestly, I love it just the way it is with a pat of butter!
Do I Leave the Skin on Zucchini for Zucchini Bread?
One of the beautiful things about zucchini bread is there is no need to fool with peeling the zucchini first. The skin all but melts into the bread as it bakes since it's so thin.
