What Ingredients you'll need to make Keto Zucchini Bread

Why Make Zucchini Bread?

Well, Zucchini is made up of moistly water and fiber so it helps to keep the bread moist and provide some structure to the bread. To people who don't care for zucchini don't worry. I swear if I didn't tell you I don't think you would know it was there.

What Equipment You Need to Make Zucchini Bread

Tips for Making Chocolate Pecan Zucchini Bread

  • Drain ALL moisture out of the zucchini, after shredding the zucchini wrap it in a towel and ring out as much moisture as possible. Otherwise the zucchini bread will not bake properly and fall apart.
  • Add Extra chocolate chips the last 10 minutes of cooking. I like to sprinkle on a few extra sugar free chocolate chips just so they slightly melt on top right before the zucchini bread is done.
  • Use a toothpick to check to see that the zucchini bread is fully cooked. If ups place a toothpick straight down into the zucchini bread it should come out clean. If some of the bread sticks to the toothpick continue baking.
  • Let the Zucchini bread fully cool before slicing. I didn't listen to this step and had a hard time cutting the zucchini bread. the next day I sliced it and had no issues. Moral of the story, be patient and you will be rewarded.
