Ingredients

  • cups plus 2 tbsp (227 g) Kim's gluten free flour blend (a store bought blend may be substituted, but hasn't been tested)
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup (about one medium) shredded zucchini, packed tightly into cup (do NOT squeeze the water out)
  • ½ cup (120 ml) canola, vegetable, or melted coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • cup plus 1 tbsp (92 ml) water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (115 g) walnuts or pecans, chopped (if desired)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray an 8½ by 4½-inch or 12 by 4½-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center and add the zucchini, oil, eggs, water, vanilla, and nuts (if using). Whisk to combine and then switch to a spoon or spatula to finish mixing completely.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  • For muffins, line muffin pan with paper liners and fill all the way to the top with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until springs back when lightly touched (or a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean).
  • Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove bread from the pan and allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.
  • Leftovers can be tightly wrapped and stored at room temperature for 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
