Please read all of the FAQ info above before making this recipe.
It's important to know that different gluten-free flour blends use different ingredients and ratios, so results will always vary if you substitute. I have never used any other brand of flour to make this recipe (other than Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (Amazon link) with the red label, NOT the blue label), so please know that your results may not be the same as mine if substitute with another gluten-free flour blend.
This recipe will NOT work with coconut flour.
Shred zucchini using the smaller of the two shredders on your box grater. After shredding DO NOT squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini.
Baking times will vary slightly, depending on your oven and the type of bakeware you use. I use a glass loaf dish when making this recipe. Start checking around the 50 minute mark. Be sure that you are using a 9x5-inch loaf pan like this one, or this one, and not an 8x4-inch loaf pan (or any other size) the zucchini bread will not bake properly.
Store wrapped in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days. For more storage info, see above.
