Gluten-free Buckwheat Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Oh my wow, this is the best buckwheat zucchini bread I’ve ever made.

I am always on the lookout for new ways to make zucchini bread, and this version did not disappoint. While I usually go all in on the buckwheat flour, this time I blended it with a little Bob’s GF flour to help hold it together a little better. The garbanzo bean flour seems to provide a good balance to many of my GF experiments.

The end product was still a little crumbly, but the taste made up for it. This will definitely be on my plate for breakfast tomorrow, slathered with a healthy dose of almond butter.

Here’s my particular flour choices if you want to follow this recipe exactly.

Additionally, to follow my exact version, I used butter over coconut oil and did not add walnuts. Not a big fan of nuts in my bread, but I know many are.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
