Quick Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

Healthy gluten-free subtly sweet zucchini quick bread that doesn’t use refined sugar or oil.

Having just finished my fermented buckwheat bread the day before and craving for some baked grains, I decided to make a quick bread using baking powder. Also experience to make gluten-free zucchini bread.

As it definitely is zucchini season and my kitchen is filled with these sweet babies constantly getting some more from both my parents and in-laws, I just had to put some in the bread.

Quick Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

  • Author: Nele Liivlaid

  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


Healthy gluten-free subtly sweet zucchini quick bread that doesn’t use refined sugar or oil.


  • 300 ml (120 g) oat flour
  • 140 ml (80 g) unroasted buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups (480 ml) coarsely grated zucchini
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup (240 ml) plant-based milk (I used unsweetened rice milk)
  • 68 dates (I used 6 as I did not want it overly sweet)


  1. Soak the dates in milk for about 30 minutes. Chop them first, if very dry. Put dates, milk and banana in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flours, baking powder/soda and cinnamon.
  3. Pour wet mixture into bowl and mix the ingredients well. Carefully mix in grated zucchini.
  4. Grease a bread loaf or line it with parchment paper and pour the mixture in. Bake at 350 F (175 Celsius) for 65-70 minutes until tooth-stick comes out clean.
  5. Let cool and enjoy.

Tips on my zucchini bread:

  • Lazy-version of Zucchini Bread: Ditch the dates and use 2-3 tbsp agave syrup instead. Use a bit less milk (about 210 ml) as there are no dates to suck it in. Mash the banana with fork and mix it in.
  • Save time by making muffins instead. Bake for 30-35 minutes + they cool down much quicker.
  • If you use tartrate baking powder (like I did), add 10 g to the dry ingredients. Also, ditch the baking soda.
  • Experiment with other vegetables/fruits: carrot, apple, or pumpkin.
  • Use any plant-based milk. However, you could also use plain water or blend a small handful of preferably soaked nuts with water and the banana from the recipe.
