Zucchini Banana Bread {gf,df,rsf}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

No, this is not any ordinary banana bread. This is gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free zucchini banana bread! Instead of sugar and butter, this recipe uses pure maple syrup, coconut oil, almond butter, and more to create the perfect bread! This bread is super moist and fluffy with the use of almond flour and oat flour, which are both gluten free options. Plus, I included a nutty crumble on top for a little crunch and texture. This bread pairs perfectly with a creamy nut butter, and it will fulfill all your cravings breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. A slice of this gets in some veggies, fruits, and yummy sweetness without the use of added sugar!
