Keto Sweet Zucchini Bread Recipe

I can’t express enough, the “feel goods” you will get from this Keto Sweet Zucchini Bread Recipe.

I finally mastered the sweet bread like Grandma used to make! Yes, I have her written recipe and have made it many times in my adult life…  But, all of those recipes have been tucked away since I started my Keto journey. I have to admit, I was terrible at baking when I was younger. So many times, I would attempt bread and cookies and FAIL! Miserably.

It was so frustrating, having two grandmothers that always made amazing recipes, as a kid. So many memories of helping them mix and pour and stir in their kitchens. Why was I so awful at it?

One day, it clicked. I loved to cook and bake, but I wasn’t putting any LOVE into it! My mother hated cooking and her food tasted like it. She rarely ever put out a meal that had any love in it. I never understood why her food was so plain and bland, until that point.

My Grandmothers both put so much time and energy into everything they made, that food was EVERYTHING when we were there. How did it skip a generation, to where I had to spend the early part of my childhood, really disliking everything put in front of me at home?!

My memories of Grandma (on my Mom’s side) as a kid, bring me such vivid recollection of happy times. Watching her slow dance around the kitchen, chatting away, with the biggest smile on her face. Most of my time visiting there, I had cousins and sometimes the aunts/uncles there as well.

So, we always enjoyed the family time we shared around Grandma’s food. My absolute favorite thing she made, was her chocolate chip zucchini bread. Even better, chocolate-chocolate chip zucchini bread! Best thing ever, seriously.. I couldn’t get enough and always wanted more.

During my disaster baking trials, I just put her recipe away and couldn’t even bring myself to attempt it. After my breakthrough, I pulled it back out and successfully started replicating her bread. When zucchini was in season, you’d know what I would be making!

As I previously said, Keto set me back from my “normal” baking agenda for a while… But I decided it was time to get back out the old recipes and transform them into a Keto-friendly version of amazingness!!

My Grandma is still with us, but life is much slower these days and I don’t believe she is still baking quite so much. I don’t see her often, but the love runs deep in my memories and thoughts. I would hope that if she gets a chance to see this post, she would feel the love that I am trying to share with all of you.

My version of her original is as close as I could possibly get to all of the love I absorbed from her as a child. It brings me joy, reminds me of where I came from, playing around the property with my cousins and just being at Grandma’s house. The warmth and comfort of her home.

I am so pleased with how this bread turned out. The “feel goods” will continue for me, and be enjoyed for many years to come for my family. My Keto journey is established and I will further progress in my baking adventures, with the heart of my family beside me.

Thank you, Grandma, for being such a wonderful woman. My thoughts are with both of my amazing Grandmothers every time I add that extra love into a recipe.

 

Update:  This was a message from Lisa Van Tuyle with her photo:  Yum, Yum, Yummy in my tummy. Wonderful zucchini bread, deliciously moist and so flavorful. I used my mini bundt pan as I have serious trouble cutting equal slices from a loaf pan.

    Kris, you really should try to visit your grandmother while you still can. You should show her this blog as well. I don’t know if she is online or not but she would really enjoy it more coming from you. If for some reason you can’t visit her, then call her. I am sure she would love a visit on the phone just as much 🙂

    1. You could. I like to use a blend of the two.. I find, too much Swerve in a recipe could give it that cooling after taste. So, I haven’t tried it with just Swerve.

    Thank you for this! Made it last night and I was soooooo happy! Been feeling deprived of desserts and breads on Keto recently, and this fulfilled both these cravings for me. It was so much easier than I expected too. I had never made any types of sweet bread even before Keto, but I will definitely be making this again!

    Made it yesterday, it came out delish! I omitted the Xanthan Gum as I try to avoid gums, it turned out great. I’m not sure how it would be with it though. It is stable and looks just like in your picture. I will definitely make it again!! Thanks so much for a wonderful, look like regular, recipe 🙂

    I left out the xanthan gum, reduced the powdered swerve by 2 TBS and added 1/2 teaspoon more cinnamon and this is the BEST low carb, grain free, keto sweet bread I have ever had!! So darn close to texture and taste of my Mom’s recipe! I can’t say enough about how amazing this turned out!!

  5. I love this recipe thank you so much. I cut used Lakanto Monkfruit Classic in place of the Stevia and cut it down to 1/4 cup. I used super fine Almond flour to help with texture. This recipe has a place in my personal recipe box, thanks again!
