Cheesy keto zucchini bread

Cheesy keto zucchini bread is moist, tasty and flavorful keto bread and can be eaten plain. Low carb bread with zucchini and cheese is something that you need in your life.

This bread is great toasted and works good as a bread for keto sandwiches. Few days ago I made it for breakfast and we ate it with cream cheese and smoked salmon. OMG, that combination was one of my best keto breakfasts ever.

I love eating his bread still hot with a little butter on top. Wow! Melted cheese inside and melting butter on top plus pinch of coarse salt! Yummy!

My children love this low carb bread with zucchini. Usually my son don’t like to see green stuff in his bread. In this case he didn’t have anything against. He loves it. If you have a picky eater in your family, consider peeling zucchini. And definitely try this keto zucchini bread recipe!

I was inspired to make this bread, by cheesy zucchini bread made by Nagi from RecipeTinEats.

How to make cheesy keto zucchini bread

First grate zucchini!

It’s the best to grate zucchini first because of the water in zucchini. You need to leave them until you prepare other ingredients. While you are preparing other ingredients, zucchini will release excess water. Squeeze them as much as you can. Drain the soul out of zucchini! 😁

To make this keto zucchini bread coconut flour and almond flour combined are the best because you get a real and cheesy bread texture. I really like to bake with coconut and almond flour combined. In this case, use superfine almond flour. If using almond meal you will need to add more, it could be too runny. So, that’s one thing to think about and adapt if necessary to have perfect cheesy keto zucchini bread.

Mediterranean flavor

Olive oil and a pinch of garlic are giving special flavor to this low carb zucchini bread. I would say that this low carb bread is getting some Mediterranean flavor if you add olive oil and a little garlic. It’s the best to use powdered garlic, and don’t put too much. Just a little for that special kick.

    Can you taste the coconut flour? I can’t stand it and find I can always taste it…. can you just add more almond flour?

      Hi, actually you don’t taste coconut flour. Because of zucchini it has very neutral, “like a real bread” taste.

    I think more almond flour Is necessary. Cooking time increase as well. Smells wonderful. Hoping it tastes as great as it smells

      Thanks for the comment. Zucchini have different amount of water inside so you did great by adding more almond flour.

      HI Pam, this recipe is not eggy at all. When you just remove it from the oven it could have eggy smell for a few minutes, but it’s not eggy at all. Jalapeno corn bread was not my recipe. 🙂
