Gluten-Free Raspberry Zucchini Bread


In an effort to eat healthier, I came up with this recipe for a much healthier zucchini bread, and I was pleasantly surprised that something that is good for you tastes so good. I have raspberry plants and a garden with zucchini so these are plentiful at this time of year. I also have an apple tree where I cook the apples down with no sugar added and then jar them for later use.

2 loaves


  • 3 eggs

  • 1 cup coconut sugar

  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted

  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • ½ cup cane sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground Ceylon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour

  • 1 ½ cups chickpea flour (besan)

  • 3 cups grated, drained zucchini

  • 1 cup pecans

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease 2 loaf plans with coconut oil and sprinkle with gluten-free flour.

  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl; stir in coconut sugar, coconut oil, applesauce, cane sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, Ceylon cinnamon, and Himalayan salt. Mix in gluten-free flour and chickpea flour, 1 cup at a time; stir until mixed well. Fold in zucchini, pecans, and raspberries. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 1/4 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Walnuts can be substituted for the pecans, if desired.

If you prefer a little bit sweeter bread then you can use a total of 2 cups of sugar instead of 1 and 1/2 but this was plenty sweet enough for me.

I try to use as many organic ingredients as possible.
