    Gluten-Free Zucchini (Walnut or Chocolate Chips) Bread

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    As my husband's garden in full bloom, zucchini is popping up everywhere...so it's only appropriate for me to make good use of it and bake some zucchini bread!

    Makes one loaf.

    Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

    Cook Time: 50-65 Minutes

    Ingredients:

    1. 1/2 stick of salted butter
    2. 1/4 cup of vegetable oil (optional)
    3. 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
    4. 1/4 cup of sugar
    5. 1 1/2 cup of "Silkie Flour Mix" (3/4 cup of  Brown Rice Flour, 1/4 cup white rice flour, 1/4 cup of Tapioca flour, 1/4 cup of corn starch and a little bit of potato starch)
    6. 2 eggs
    7. 1 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum
    8. 1 tsp of baking powder
    9. 1/2 tsp of baking soda
    10. 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
    11. 1/8 tsp of nutmeg
    12. 1/2 tsp of gluten free vanilla extract
    13. 1 1/2 cup of shredded zucchini
    14. 1/2 cup of chopped Walnut (optional) - with nuts version
    15. 1/2 cup of chocolate Chips (optional) - chocolate chips version
    16. 2 tbsp of light brown sugar for sprinkle on top (optional)

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350F degree, grease one 8 by 4 by 2-inch loaf with oil spray or line the pan with parchment paper.
    2. Use mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy
    3. With mixer running, add egg and vanilla extract to the mixture
    4. Whisk flour mix, baking powder, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, nutmeg and cinnimon together and add the dry ingredient to the wet ingredient in the mixer
    5. If the dough appears too dry, add 1/4 of vegetable oil
    6. Fold zucchini and walnut (optional - for nut version) or chocolate chips (optional - chocolate chips version) into the batter
    7. Pour batter into the prepared pan, if desires, sprinkle a couple 2 tbsp brown sugar on top of the batter
    8. Bake for 55-65 mins until golden brown or skewer insert in the center comes out clean
    9. Let cool for 10 minutes before serve.

    Happy Baking!

    You put butter into the zucchini bread recipe; yet your daughter is severely allergic to dairy products--otherwise this recipe sounds great!

    Hi Lee Anne! Just noticed your comment and thought I would mention that there is dairy free butter- "Earth Balance" is one that I use. My whole family uses it and never even notice a difference taste wise. Thanks Silka for a very yummy looking recipe, I can't wait to try it out!

    Wondering if someone can tell me how much a 'half stick of butter' is? In some measurable quantity, such a cups/oz/grams? (Butter is not sold in 'sticks' where I live).

    Thanks for sharing your recipes! I am looking forward to trying them out!

    1 stick of butter is: 8 Tablespoons, 1/4 pound, or 1/2 cup.

     

    I haven't tried this recipe yet but our daughter was diagnosed with celiac today and my head is still reeling. We'll be starting to rethink everything, including zucchini bread.
