5 minute Zucchini Blender Bread Recipe – No Grains, No Added Sugar

How many of you are growing zucchini this year? 

 

And how many of you have more zucchini than you know what to do with?!

 

*hand raised* ME!!!

So I set out to create a zucchini bread recipe to use up some of my garden zucchini.  

 

And I am so happy about how this zucchini bread turned out! It meets all 3 of my requirements for being easy, healthy and delicious.

In fact, it’s SO easy that all it takes is 5 minutes and a blender!

 

I’m calling this my 5 minute zucchini blender bread and I think it might be my easiest bread recipe yet. Yes, it’s even easier than the no grains, no added sugar, easy and amazing banana bread, which I didn’t think was possible. By the way, if you haven’t made that yet, you may want to. It’s my most popular and most loved recipe! (Click HERE for my banana bread recipe)

Anyway, this zucchini blender bread is SO yummy that I made it 3 times in one weekend. And it got big thumbs up from everyone I served it to, including a bunch of little ones who gobbled it up and asked for more.

But one of the best parts about this zucchini blender bread recipe is that it contains NO added sugar. Not even honey or maple syrup! It’s 100% naturally sweetened by the dates. Love that!

 

So if you have 5 minutes to spare, grab your blender, grab a zucchini and let’s make zucchini blender bread! :)

    About how many cups of zucchini? I have a huge one so i was going to use some of that.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Cannot wait to try this as soon as we get back from vacation! I love recipes that use ingredients I already have on hand. Sounds amazing!

  3. jill says:

    i am ready to make this now but med size zucchini is not clear…approximately how many cups? looks awesome and just today i decided to cut back on sweeteners…perfect!

    • Hi Jill! I’ve made this recipe a lot and every time my zucchini has been a little different size – some have been bigger and some have been a little smaller (got to love homegrown zucchini!). This is a really forgiving recipe. Just don’t use the huge, giant zucchini’s and be sure to scrape out all the seeds and you’ll be fine. I actually did use a giant zucchini one of the times, but I just used half of it. Next time I make this, I’ll measure the zucchini in my measuring cup and get an approximate measure and update the recipe to reflect that. But in the meantime, I promise you that this really is a very forgiving recipe.

      3 cups

  4. Janet says:

    I made this today using about 3 cups of 1″ cubed zucc. I also added scant 1 teaspoon of baking powder hoping for a fluffier top. It was good! I think I need a few more dates to satisfy the hubby’s sweet tooth, and the coconut flour texture takes getting used to over traditional recipes, but I LOVED the blender idea. No more endless shredding! I may have to try a traditional recipe using the blender method. Lord knows I have enough zucchini to experiment! Thank you (and I love your haircut in the photo with your squash).

    • Great to hear, Janet! I love the blender method, too! I always hated shredding zucchini, too and I’m always trying to find easier/faster ways around recipes – don’t have time for all that fuss ;)

  5. Michal says:

    Just made this and now I’m waiting for it to cool! I can’t wait!!

  6. Kim says:

    Any thoughts on substitutions for the dates? I was going to try stevia or a banana. It’ll be a great recipe for the oodles of zucchini!

    • I don’t think you could go wrong with either (or both)! I think I would probably try a banana and a few drops of stevia. If the batter is looking too liquidy, add an extra tablespoon or two of coconut flour.

  7. Janet says:

    Is this a freezable recipe?

  8. Stephanie says:

    Hi Kelly- can’t wait to try this with all the zucchini we have this summer! Fresh out of dates right now- do you think dried figs might work as a sweetener?

    • Hi Stephanie! Same thing happened to me last weekend – well almost the same thing. I only had 4 dates left so I used them and added 4 figs. It turned out great! I would use about 6-8 figs if I only was using figs.

      • Stephanie says:

        Hey Kelly- Thanks for the tip with the dates and figs. The combo was perfect! I’m back to tell you that I made this recipe again today because I loved it so much, but I made it into muffins! I experimented with some new flavors and made them chai-spiced and they are the BOMB! I just added some ginger, cardamom, black pepper, and nutmeg to the cinnamon and the flavors came together so nicely with the bread!

        I’ll definitely be doing some more experimenting with flavors with this bread as a base :)

  9. Wendy says:

    I used 2 bananas instead of the dates and it came out awesome. I also added some almonds (soaked) and vita-mixed the woogies out of it :) came out great. I am a fan of your banana bread also, it is a weekly staple around here.
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes :)

  10. Claudia says:

    I have some zucchini in the fridge and not sure what to do with it. I intended on making zucchini pizza crust so I shredded 1 large one. Do you think I can use that, eventhough I shredded the entire suzzhini without removing the seeds?

    As well, I dont have cocoonut flour. I have actually never tried it. I dont have any flours at home since I rarely use the oven or even make desserts. I have homemade oat flour and almond flour however. Can I use this instead? I also think coconut flour is a little expensive for me right now.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Claudia! I don’t think this recipe will work for what you are working with. If the seeds are left in the zucchini, it makes this bread way too moist – almost wet. Also coconut flour is a very unique flour and does not substitute with any other flours. I think you will be much better off looking for a grain-free almond flour zucchini bread recipe :)

  11. Claudia says:

    Thank you for the super fast response! I am very intrigued by coconut flour… am going to have to get my hands on it sooner or later. I am going to use my zucchini to make some fritters instead :) Thanks !

  12. Julie Huffaker says:

    I wish I had the nutritional info. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. Virginia says:

    Hi! We love this recipe! :-D Any suggestions on a ‘frosting’ (something ‘healthy’ / ‘primal’? Not sure what could hold up and NOT melt on this.

    Thanks!

  14. Sandy says:

    Hi Kelly,

    I’m so excited about making this recipe! I’ve recently started eating clean and have lost 17 pds so far! I don’t eat anything processed and am looking for things I can have occasionally in addition to my fruits and vegys. I bought all the ingredients to make this but accidentally grabbed pitted plums instead of the pitted dates. I’m hoping it will work, what do you think?

    Thanks!
    Sandy

  15. Francesca says:

    Hi Kelly, thank you for this recipe. I tried it today and it’s nice. Maybe it was a little too moist for my taste and even though I only had 10 dates it is very sweet for me.

    For people like me who prefers weights to the uncertainty of cups:

    350 g net zucchini without the core (next time I’ll do 270-280 grams)
    140 g dates with no pits (only 10, next time I’ll do 100 g about 6-7 dates)
    60 g coconut flour
    rest of the ingredients as per recipe.

    • Thank you so much for this, Francesca!! Also, the longer the bread sits, the more it “firms” up. I actually prefer this the next day rather than just out of the oven so it has a chance to firm up better :)

  16. Julie says:

    I’m so excited about this bread!
    I just made some and I’m wondering if I didn’t bake it long enough (maybe my oven isn’t as hot as I think).
    It turned out to be a little soggy – almost like a bread pudding consistency. Any ideas for next time?
    I followed the recipe and a toothpick came out clean after 60 minutes.
    Either way it’s very yummy and I will work with it!
    Thanks!
