Lemon Maple Zucchini Bread Recipe With Gluten Free Option

You’re going to love my Lemon Maple Zucchini Bread! Is anyone else overwhelmed with zucchini but me? We only planted ONE zucchini plant so that this wouldn’t happen. But, it’s gone crazy. And, then the neighbor brought over a bag of zucchini and summer squash because she had too much. And, I just couldn’t say no. So, now I have a dozen or more zucchini to deal with. Since no one but me actually LIKES zucchini, I need to bake with it. Or, toss it in the compost pile which would be a waste of perfectly good food.

For me, quick bread like this one is a dessert or a very occasional treat at breakfast time. I don’t like it super sweet so I avoid adding too much sugar or topping it with a glaze or cream cheese frosting. If your family is more of a fan of sweet desserts, you can certainly do that as well. Homemade cream cheese topping is one of my weaknesses.

PLEASE use real Vermont maple syrup. If you aren’t near Vermont or cannot get Vermont maple syrup, please buy 100% real maple syrup at the store not that fake stuff. The real taste of maple is one makes this Lemon Maple Zucchini Bread stand out from all the rest.

Lemon Maple Zucchini Bread Recipe With Gluten Free Option
If you need to make this recipe gluten-free, you can use a gluten free baking mix. I highly recommend this gluten free flour because it’s an exact one to one replacement. That means you don’t need to worry about conversion which can be tricky in gluten free baking.

This is one of my favorite quick bread recipes, and I regularly give it as a gift near the holidays. You can wrap this quick bread once it’s cool and free it until the holidays are closer. When I’m ready to give it as a gift, I like to use these gift bags with ties because it looks so much nicer than the messy plastic wrap. If you plan on giving the loaf right away, you can bake it in these paper loaf pans and give it that way.

  2. I really like the gluten free breads and mixes I've tried. It's finally cooling off here so I can have the oven on and not bake myself. The Vermont maple syrup in this sounds so good to me!
