Gluten Free Zucchini Bread
Got zucchini? Our friend Dana does and she’s happy to share, thank goodness! The first recipe that came to mind was gluten free Zucchini Bread. However, our carrot infused GF muffins and cakes rock socks (read as kid tested.) We decided to combine our veggie mates and create a lightly sweet Flour Farm Garden Bread full of delicious, (and nutritious,) goodness.
Kid Tested & Approved: Flour Farm Garden Bread
We want to share a funny story. This past weekend, our daughter, (who will not eat gluten free zucchini bread, but loves our “garden bread”,) brought a friend to the lake with us and she LOVED this recipe. She asked for several slices. I gave her part of a loaf to take home to her family. When we dropped her off, the loaf was no where to be found – but we did find the empty wrapper! The sheepish smile on her face told us that this recipe checks the kid approval box. Whew!
What makes our recipe so special?
We use Flour Farm Organic Gluten Free Flour Blend, of course! In addition, this recipe lacks gums, excess sugar and oil. Traditional zucchini bread recipes use twice as much sugar and oil. We pack our bread with fresh vegetables right out of the garden, but the organic section of the grocers or farmers market works just fine! It’s also easy to make muffins with this recipe instead of loaves. Dave’s father prefers muffins so we make batches of garden muffins that he keeps in his freezer and thaws to enjoy with his tea.
Enjoy this easy to make, moist and delicious gluten free Zucchini Bread (Garden Bread.) Oh – please let us know how you did in the comment section below the recipe. We enjoy hearing from you.

Step 1: Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Step 2: Use a stand up mixer or hand blender to beat together sugars and eggs for one minute on medium. Add vanilla and vinegar and beat until blended. Reduce the speed to low and beat in the oil until fully emulsified.
Step 3: Add dry blend, vegetables and nuts (if using) to the wet mix. Stir or beat on low until additions are thoroughly incorporated. Pour mixture evenly into prepared baking pans. If making muffins, fill wells 2/3 of the way full.
Step 4: Bake in a preheated oven until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Double loaves take about 55 minutes. Muffins take about 22 minutes.
Step 5: Remove pans from the oven and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. Transfer loaves or muffins to cooling racks and continue cooling until ready to enjoy or store. Do not wrap bread until completely cool.
