Garden Fresh Zucchini Bread

Got a bunch of zucchini from your garden you can’t use up? This Paleo zucchini bread recipe is the easiest way to use them up while also satisfying your sweet tooth. Moist and tender, it’s a delicious afternoon Paleo snack or breakfast option. This yummy Paleo zucchini bread tastes great covered in grass-fed butter or ghee, right out of the oven, but it tastes even better the next day, so go ahead and make it in advance. Don’t skip the step of salting and draining water from the zucchini, lest you may end up with squishy bread!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
