Keto Recipes - Created Date : 21.10.2019
A few months ago when I made those delicious Cinnamon Spice Keto Muffins I mentioned that I wanted to try my hand at a Low Carb Zucchini Bread Recipe next… and that’s exactly what I did this week. Successfully! ??
You can use ANY kind of nut butter in this recipe. The Pumpkin Spice Pili Nut Butter has a nice “fall spice” flavor to it already though, so if you use a plain nut butter you’ll have to add your own flavoring and spices.
It helps if your eggs are not TOO cold, to prevent the melted butter or oil from clumping on you, and you definitely want your nut butter to be room temperature.
I whisk my eggs first and set them aside on the counter while preparing everything else.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Break up the Pili Nuts into smaller pieces.
Grate the zucchini into small pieces, and use paper towels to soak up any excess water. (I used Zoodles from the produce section and diced them up smaller.)
Stir together the first three ingredients (eggs, nut butter & melted butter or coconut oil) until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix with a hand mixer.
Save the chopped pili nuts and grated zucchini, and fold those in at the end.
Grease a glass rectangle baking dish liberally with coconut oil.
TIP: Definitely use coconut oil! I tried a well-buttered dish with my first batch and it wasn’t as easy to get out of the dish as the batch where I greased the baking dish with coconut oil. ??
NOTE: This recipe makes a smaller batch, which is ideal if you’re the only one eating low carb or keto in your home. You can simply double the recipe for a traditional sized zucchini bread loaf.
For this smaller half-sized recipe I used a 6¨ x 4¨ glass dish that is 2¨ deep. I kept enough batter out to also make 3 muffins.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes – until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
(Muffins take a little less time, start checking those after 25 minutes.)
IMPORTANT: Let the zucchini bread loaf cool completely before slicing, or attempting to remove from the baking dish.
I personally let mine cool to room temperature, then refrigerated it overnight. That made it easy to remove from the baking dish, using a rubber spatula to gently loosen it from the edges first.
While it’s very moist, and not at all grainy or dense, it still holds together very well – and has a nice crust on the outside with a soft nutty bread texture:
It’s exceptionally good topped with real butter. ??
The muffins will do best in a silicone muffin pan, or in a muffin tin well-greased with coconut oil.
If you use muffin papers – feel free to dive right into one as soon as it cools enough so you don’t burn your mouth. ??
Optional: mix a little cinnamon and sweetener of choice (I like Granular Swerve) together and sprinkle it over the hot muffins or loaf for a pretty & sweet topping:
Using the exact recipe above, my Low Carb Zucchini Bread slices & muffins made 10 servings (7 slices and 3 muffins) and came out to only 1.5 net carbs each with perfect LCHF macros.
You can use the Free MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator to add in each of your ingredients, and the number of servings based on how you slice yours – or how many muffins you make.
This is 2 servings logged for breakfast:
It came out nutty, super moist – and absolutely delicious! ¦
I have a lot of fun coming up with creative ways to use Pili Nuts and Pili Nut Butters in recipes and easy low carb dinner dishes. They are extremely nutrient rich and VERY low carb, making them a perfect addition to any keto kitchen.
Plus I love knowing the passion & purpose that goes into bringing these super foods to our kitchens. You should see: Why I Love Pili Hunters to get a REAL feel for the quality & value of these products.
I especially love baking with Pili Nut Butter. The original flavor makes great blueberry muffins, and also fabulous blueberry pancakes & waffles.
They’re also available on Amazon but they do have some GREAT sales on their website right now AND we have a coupon code (above) that works on the site – but not on Amazon. ??
I’m really pleased this Low Carb Zucchini Bread came out SO well.
I “messed up” the first batch by adding twice as much zucchini and pili nuts. It was still delicious (and I ate the entire pan, lol) but it didn’t rise as well as THIS recipe – or have the nice moist bread texture as it did with half as much of each.
This version was GREAT, and even better topped with the Pili Nut Butter. ??
I worked hard on this one, tweaking the amounts to get it just right. I do think it would be even better if you add nutmeg, and of course feel free to experiment with the ingredients & amounts to suit your tastebuds…
I hope you enoy it! ??
You may want to order more than just a sampler pack because you’ll fall in love with Pili Nuts and Nut Butters in your kitchen. Or if you have some on hand already and you’re looking for creative ways to use them…
p.s. Both the Pili Nuts and the Original Pili Nut Butter pair VERY well with dark chocolate too, by the way. MY favorite is to mix the original Pili Nut Butter with dark chocolate, then add chopped Pili Nuts – for a nutty, delicious, healthy fat bomb. ¦
Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering! This looks delicious and sounds very easy to make. I haven’t tried the Pili products yet, but maybe now is the time. Thanks for the delicious-sounding recipe, discount code, and great links, Lynn.
It really was delicious, Cindi. ?? I ate both batches I baked! The Pili Hunters products are exceptional – high quality, whole food, great ingredients.
Interestingly it spiked my ketone levels and caused a nice 2 pound weight loss. I attribute that to the great ingredients (no junk / nothing artificial), the perfect LCHF macros, and possibly the specific nutrients – lion’s mane mushroom, magnesium, potassium, natural oils, etc. I’m not sure, but it happens every time I make Pili recipes!
They have some good sales and some great bundle prices for combining products – like the two I used in this recipe. And they’ll have a good Black Friday sale too. ??
If you decide to make this recipe, let me know how yours turns out – and any modifications you try!
