Why I love Bob’s Red Mill flour

For this Vegan Zucchini Banana Bread, I like to use a mix of Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Flour and Almond Flour. I love the different textures both of these flours combined give the bread. Bob’s is one of my go-to’s for baking supplies. I love their flour because it is high quality and I can trust what I’m putting into my baking. 

Their almond flour is gluten-free and low carb. If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, you can totally opt-out of mixing the all-purpose flour in. You’ll just want to ensure you are getting the ratios correctly as different flours aren’t always a one to one ratio.

Here is a guide for all sorts of types of flours and how to substitute them into your recipes.

The benefits of baking with zucchini 

Zucchini is loaded with nutrients. It’s high in antioxidants, contributes to healthy digestion, helps improve blood sugar levels, heart health, and even your vision. 

What a lot of people don’t think about is baking with zucchini. Zucchini is like using bananas in a recipe. So for this recipe I used fewer bananas and added in zucchini. It adds a wonderful texture and moistness to baked goods, and helps bulk up cakes, bread, and muffins. 

How do you make Vegan Zucchini Banana Bread?

This bread is so easy to whip up. Here are the simple steps to make this masterpiece: 

  1. Preheat your oven 
  2. Coat your baking tin with coconut oil
  3. In a bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon
  4. In a separate bowl, mash your banana with a fork
  5. Whisk in the zucchini, melted oil or butter, brown sugar egg replacement, vanilla, and almond milk
  6. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture, and stir well 
  7. Pour the mixture into your tin 
  8. Bake for 5 minutes at 425F, then 50 minutes at 350F
  9. Cool for 5 minutes in the baking tin and remove to let cool on a wire rack

This was SO delicious. I made it immediately, hardest part was not eating the loaf…Thanks for using such simple ingredients. I used a plant based butter, and the Bob’s egg replacer that you’ve recommended.
I usually ONLY make my mom’s banana bread, and now this will officially be in very regular rotation. My husband and 14 year old son both LOVED it too – thanks for the zucchini sneak in 😉 Delicious.

My mom used to put zucchini in cookies when I was a kid to make me eat veggies. It was so smart. Can’t wait to try this!

I would say it’s a hybrid. But still so moist and delicious. I would 100% give it a go then top with icing! Best of both worlds!
