Zucchini Bread

Yield: one 8x4-inch loaf

Zucchini Bread


  • 2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups grated zucchini, squeezed and drained on cloth or paper towels
  • 2 tsp grated lemon zest (optional)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)


Whisk together Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil, and sugars for one minute on medium. Stir in vanilla, grated zucchini, lemon zest, and walnuts. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients to form a batter.

Bake in a greased loaf pan in a preheated 350° oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (loaf will spring back from a gentle touch). Let loaf cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Baked zucchini loaf will be moist.

Variation: For muffins, fill greased or paper-lined muffin tins 2/3 full and bake in 350° oven for 30 to 35 minutes.

    Can you use honey instead of sugar?

      Yes, you can use honey. Use about 1/2 – 3/4 cup for each cup of sugar a recipe calls for.

      Use maple syrup rather than honey because heat causes honey to release toxins.

        I used maple syrup as you suggested, and the result wasn’t sweet enough – it was too salty. I ended up enjoying it better with honey. Next time I’ll try Xylitol.

          I have used Xylitol before and it works great!:)

        Honey releasing toxins when heated in a MYTH. High heat will degrade the enzymes, but not make it toxic.

    This is my favorite gluten free zucchini recipe that I have made. Moist, but not too moist! Easy to mix up and throw in the oven. Great as muffins as well as a loaf.
