Recipe Directions

  • 3. Add dates, cinnamon and vanilla to nuts in food processor and process again until well mixed.
  • 4. Remove mixture from food processor and add it to the big bowl that contains the zucchini. Combine with spoon or hands. (Mixture will appear dry but will get moist as you mix. Do not add any liquids.)

  • 6. Form into 10-11 loaves (see picture). Place on parchment paper.
  • 7. Dehydrate on high for one hour. Reduce to 110 degrees for another five hours or until desired consistency is reached.
  • 8. Store in refrigerator.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Growing up, I was raised on zucchini bread, so when my weekly CSA farm delivery came laden with zucchini I just knew I had to make a simple, satisfying raw zucchini recipe.

Much like my other breads, the addition of psyllium husk is what gives this bread its nice, moist consisency. There is no substitution for psyllium husk :)

I recently ran out of walnuts and used almonds instead of walnuts and this recipe turned out fine, so that substitution is doable. In fact, 2 cups of any nuts would work fine in this recipe as long as you process the nuts into some semblance of "flour".  This zucchini bread is very forgiving on the nut front :)

This recipe isn't too sweet. It's subtle. It's perfect for breakfast on the go! A slice of this raw zucchini bread recipe, a crisp apple and a nice tall glass of cashew milk would be a lovely breakfast!

If you want to serve it dessert style, try icing it with a white or chocolate icing. Iced slices should be stored in the fridge at all times, otherwise the icing will soften too much.

Freezing - yes. Just let thaw in fridge, then warm in dehydrator before eating

Oh. My. Goodness. This is a fantastic recipe. May I yell? FANTASTIC! Its moist, bready, sweet (but not too sweet), and so satisfyingly dense. I'm not completely raw, so my favorite way to enjoy this zucchini bread is with a strong cup of coffee :) This recipe will easily replace any cravings I have for a pastry in the morning! Thanks so much!! Oh and thanks for the introduction to psyllium husk - its magical!

xox you are certainly allowed to yell - in this case it is warranted! I pretty much use psyllium husk now when dehydrating instead of flax (not a straight substitution, btw - just in general I try to use it more). Much subtler taste and you need less of it

I tried this a couple weeks ago and it was fabulous! My husband and I are new to the raw diet, only about 5 months. We started eating only organic when my husband was diagnosed with a tumor early in the year. Through research we decided going raw would probably be best.

One thing we were sad about giving up was zucchini bread so we were SO happy to find this. We giggled in joy after the first bite, amazed at the moist bread-like consistency and the exact same flavor we loved from the now forbidden cooked recipe.

What was even better was realizing that instead of a oil, egg, refined sugar loaf of sadness, this raw recipe was made with all good nutritious things our bodies would be thankful for!

Thank you Rawtarian :)

Clara, I am so glad you enjoyed it! I was raised on zuc and banana bread so I know what you mean about not wanting to give it up :) It's definitely the psyllium husk that takes the credit for the moistness - a good sub for egg and oil! Sending your DH good thoughts

thank you for a brilliant recipe! This popped out at me and I went right to the store and loaded up on zucchini. I love how the loaves turned out, not too sweet, dense, and moist with bread like consistency. They are very satisfying. :)

Hi,
I don't own a dehydrator. Can this be made in the oven on a low temp?

No, sorry. That will not work. Best to wait until you have a dehydrator :)

Can you recommend a particular dehydrator? I haven't yet purchased one. Thank you for your advice in advance.

Hi Tiffany,

I recommend the 9-tray Excalibur if you can afford it.
