EASY KETO ZUCCHINI BREAD RECIPE

TIPS FOR BAKING WITH ZUCCHINI

This keto zucchini bread recipe starts off with fresh zucchini. Zucchini adds tons of nutrients to baked goods, texture, and moisture.

Using a standard box grater, I like to grate fresh zucchini, but with the grater attachment, you could also grate it on a food processor.

For this recipe, before I add it to the batter, I usually need to remove excess moisture from the zucchini. So, you may want to remove some moisture before you add it to the bread batter if your zucchini seems especially watery. to squeeze out excess water from the zucchini so to do this, use clean hands to squeeze the grated zucchini over a bowl.
