Serves: 2 loaves or 18- 24 muffins
Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups loosely packed, coarsely grated zucchini, and drained (I tend to grate the zucchini and let it stand in a colander for 20-30 minutes, then I transfer the zucchini to a cheese cloth and squeeze the water out)
  • 1¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour (I use GF Jules, affiliate link)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ΒΌ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and depending on whether you're making muffins, loaf bread or both, grease and flour the loaf pan(s) and/ or line the muffin pan with muffin liners.
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs until frothy
  3. Add and beat in sugar, oil and vanilla until the mixture is thick and lemon-colored
  4. Stir in the zucchini
  5. Sift cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder into the flour (I just mix in a bowl with a pastry cutter)
  6. Add flour and other sifted ingredients into the mix
  7. Fold in the chopped nuts
  8. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans (8"x4" works well), OR 18-24 lined muffin tins (number of muffins depends on how big you want them -- Fill ¾ of the cup or ½ the cup depending on how big you want the muffins) , OR 1 loaf pan and 12 muffin tins.
  9. FOR BREAD: Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for one hour (Insert tooth pick and it should come out clean)
  10. FOR MUFFINS: Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 mins (insert tooth pick and it should come out clean)
  11. Cool for ten minutes
