Blender Zucchini BreadZucchini bread is a long standing favorite of mine, and years ago a friend introduced me to one of the most revolutionary ideas of all time (really): Making zucchini bread…in a blender. As you allllll know, I’m a sucker for timesavers, and this one also doubles as a way to make this bread super soft packed full of that wonderful zucchini flavor. It’s a game changer for sure!

*gluten-free *soy-free *oat-free *dairy-free

Notes:

  • you can substitute up to 1/2 cup of the oil with an equal amount of applesauce.
  • You can also substitute brown sugar for half the white sugar. For a heartier option, add some chopped pecans.
  • If you’re a chocolate lover, try the double chocolate option below!
  • One reader made Black Forest zucchini bread by adding 3 T cocoa, 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, and 1 cup dried cherries. Another baked it in a bundt pan. It’s a very versatile recipe and will turn out fantastic any way you make it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Canola Oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • About 3 cups largely chopped zucchini
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour mix
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum,  OR 2 tsp if flour mix doesn’t have any
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

    add in the following if you want double chocolate zucchini bread:

  • 2-4 T cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • additional 1/2 tsp baking soda

Instructions:

  1. Blend oil, eggs, vanilla and 2 1/2 cups zucchini together in a blender (I use a Ninja) until you have 4 cups mixture. Add more zucchini if needed to reach the 4 cups.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Spray loaf pans (8 mini or 2 regular, or any combination) fairly heavily with cooking spray, or grease generously with oil.
  4. Pour batter into pans.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 (letting batter sit while you preheat oven eliminates any gritty texture).
  6. Bake large loaves for 35-40 minutes, mini loaves 17-22 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Be careful not to over bake, as they could become dry.
  7. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
  8. Store in plastic bags in fridge up to 7 days, counter up to 4. or wrap in foil and place in freezer bag and freeze. Thaw at room temperature, in the fridge, or in 325 degree oven until warm.

  1. Wonderful!! I cant make enough of it. Thank goodness we have an abundance of zucchini in our garden. I share this bread with friends and family that think gluten free is like eating cardboard and they are amazed and want more! Will definitely keep using your sight as I am gluten intolerant. Thank you soooo much

  2. Yum!! It’s not very often that I run across a gluten free recipe that I deem a keeper – this one has made the cut. I made two batches of mini loaves for the freezer to share with family that will be visiting. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Tasty! Will definitely make again. I used the chocolate version and my own flour blend from America’s Test Kitchen cookbook. Has brown rice, white rice, sweet rice , tapioca flours and xanthan gum.

    1. I’ve tried olive oil, but only as a partial substitution because of its strong taste. I would grab some canola or grapeseed oil, or go half melted butter and half olive. Happy Gluten Free Baking Patrice!

    1. Hi Cindia! I haven’t tried sunflower oil, but I am guessing it would work. Let me know! ~Celeste
