    This looks like a fab bread Amy. The nice thing about zucchini is you can grab it any time of year :) Thanks for sharing my pancakes. xo

    @Maggie, Yes, but I wish I could grow it. And, I do think it’s better when it’s in season, like all veggies. But, I think this will make a fabulous hostess gift during the holiday season.

    I have used my mother-in-law’s recipe for chocolate zucchini bread for years. I haven’t made it since our family went gluten & dairy free, though. Now that one of my kiddos is sugar free, too, it has gone even farther down on my list of things to recreate. Thanks so much for creating a recipe using honey, coconut palm sugar, and coconut oil – some of my very favorite “go-to’s”. Just printed the recipe. Thanks.

    @Tana pender, You can get quinoa flour from iHerb.com – use coupon code SIR086 to get $5 off your first order. Or, look at your local Whole Foods if you have one close by.

    What great way to use zucchini! It’s always hard by the end of the season to keep it appetizing- funny considering how excited I am when I find the first flowers big enough for stuffing, and steam the first batch of tiny finger sized zucchini of the year :)

    I’ve yet to make chocolate zucchini bread, but this looks like a winner, Amy! I imagine the quinoa flour would also be quite good with the chocolate, in a small amount. (I’ve made crepes before with quinoa flour and cocoa powder, posted on my blog.) I’ve scanned the ingredient list over and over to see if I missed it, but the brown rice flour doesn’t seem to be listed?

    I just made this last night! Thanks so much for posting :) I altered it a little, using what I had in my kitchen, but it’s still really good! I used teff flour instead of quinoa, added an extra tablespoon of honey to sub for the stevia, and used bittersweet chocolate chips. Definitely a winner!

    @Heather, So glad you like it! Yum!! Teff is one of my favorites – it is especially good with chocolate.

    This bread tastes delicious. However, even after letting it cook much longer then called for it is very wet in the middle. Too much oil? Did you let your zucchini drain more than I did? Are my eggs too large? So many variable…it does taste good. Was there supposed to be rice flour in there?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Laura, Did you pack the zucchini in the measuring cup? That might be it. I don’t pack it. I just put it in the measuring cup. I did forget to put ‘quinoa flour or brown rice flour’ but you can use either. I used large eggs but don’t think extra large would cause a big issue.

    I thought this was a sugar free recipe and was so excited, but it has honey AND coconut palm sugar. Hmmmm in my little sugar free world those are still sugar. For a recovering sugar addict those will still set up the awful cravings. I will try this recipe with Just Like Sugar and let you know how it is sugar free! I needed something to do with my farmer’s market Zucs! Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Kathleen, If you look at the sub-title of my blog is says ‘refined sugar-free’ – I don’t use any cane sugar products. That is the problem for me. I am able to use honey and coconut palm sugar, both of which are unrefined, with no problem. Of course I use them in moderation, as one should do with all sweets. I have never tried Just Like Sugar. Looking forward to hearing your results!

    I love this recipe, Amy!! And I am also so amazed at how well coconut flour works in recipes. I made banana bread with it last week and my neighbors did not believe me when I said it was not only gluten-free, but also grain-free. :)
    And I have to agree with you that chocolate goes so well with zucchini. Not even sure how that works. LOL But it does. I also love making my zucchini bread with pineapple. Not sure how that pairing works either, but it is a fun surprise that it does. :D
    Great recipe. Will so be trying it!

    I am going to make this bread. Looks wonderful! Do I have to use the King Arthur brown rice flour, or would Hodgson Mill work just as well?

    Thanks!

    Amy Reply:

    @Bari Bell, King Arthur flour is very finely ground and does not have a gritty quality. I have never tried Hodgson Mill’s brown rice flour so you’ll have to test it out and report back.

    Hi,

    I like this recipe a lot. Its really easy to make and the consistency is great. I’d never know it was gluten free if I hadn’t been baking it myself. I made 2 of these loaves though and have noticed a surprising bitter taste. I’m new to gf and sf baking and am wondering if using regular liquid Stevia instead of vanilla Stevia is the cause of the bitterness. Any thoughts or advice would be welcome. Also, instead of using Stevia could I use extra honey or coconut palm sugar?

    Thanks so much!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Domonique, Vanilla stevia is much better for baking. And, the brand you use matters. I like NuNaturals but have also heard from many people that KAL is a great brand. You’d have to use a good amount of coconut palm sugar to make up for the extra sweetness. I wouldn’t use honey – too much liquid.

    [Reply]

    Diane Boardman Reply:

    @Amy, So far he has just avoided anything sweetened or used limited amounts of granulated stevia. We are new at this and still in a learning curve. If I use a dry/granulated sweetener, will it cause the end result to be dry? I have not purchased a liquid sweetener yet. We are trying to use natural sweeteners & avoid gluten, hoping for an impact on weight loss.

    Amy Reply:

    @Diane Boardman, The liquid does add moisture, so I don’t think you could sub it out one to one without reworking the recipe.

    Thanks for this recipe! I was skeptical at first because this is my first attempt at baking with stevia. I am trying to cut back on sugar and dreading this!!! But I followed your recipe and it turned out great. Thank you!!!! My kids even liked it, which shocked me since they are not adventurous eaters.

    Amy Reply:

    @Stephanie, That’s fabulous news!! How long have you been working on cutting back sugar? I have found that if I tweak the recipe I can use stevia and much less unrefined sugars to make the dessert much healthier.
