How To Make Paleo Zucchini Pistachio Bread

For this quick and easy zucchini pistachio bread, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Zucchini– Use fresh, grated zucchini for this recipe. Zucchini adds flavor and moisture to the bread. 
  • Eggs– Room temperature eggs work best in baked foods. Set them on the counter for about 30-minutes prior to using. 
  • Milk– Since this recipe is paleo-friendly and dairy free, you will want to use almond milk or another dairy free milk of your choice. 
  • Oil– Olive oil or avocado oil are the best choices if you want this recipe to remain paleo-friendly. 
  • Flour– For this recipe to be grain free and gluten free, we used almond flour and coconut flour. Do not pack the flour. Instead, use a spoon to scoop it into the measuring cup and scrape the excess off with a butter knife. 
  • Tapioca Starch– This is similar to corn starch except it is gluten free and a healthier option. 
  • Chia seeds– High in nutrients, Chia seeds add flavor and texture to your bread. 
  • Pistachios– Be sure to chop your pistachios and divide them. You’ll use half in the bread batter and half on top. 
  • Baking powder– This is what makes your bread rise and become nice and fluffy. 
  • Salt– Salt always adds a little flavor to your bread.

  1. Hey Courtney, this zucchini pistachio bread looks delicious and I’d love to try it. What can I use in place of the coconut flour as I am allergic to anything coconut.
    Thanks
