This zucchini walnut bread is a healthy and tasty gluten free loaf that is also dairy free and refined sugar free.

A few months ago, one of my readers asked if I was able to convert a zucchini & walnut loaf recipe into a healthier version, which was gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.

The original bread recipe contained flour, sugar and vegetable oil, which I swapped for almond meal, rice malt syrup and coconut oil respectively.

My first attempt, I merely swapped the ingredients, but I kept the quantities the same, and it did not work out very well.

For my second attempt, I made a few changes and I am super happy with the outcome.

I increased the almond meal and decreased the amount of eggs, coconut oil and maple syrup. It turned out beautifully and seriously yummy.

I love making gluten free bread and think my quinoa and chia seed bread and chocolate banana bread are pretty amazing!

  1. I have recently been told I am gluten & dairy intolerant I would really love a bread recipe as I can’t find any decent GF& DF bread all taste terrible or pastries , actually I can have organic grass fed butter & A2 or raw milk & goat & sheep yoghurt apparently it’s all to do with protein in the dairy anyway if you have any recipes that I can use for the above would really appreciate it , even GF flour has a taste but guess something’s you have to get used too
    Thanks in advance Kay
