Ingredients in Marbled Paleo Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

This paleo pumpkin bread recipe requires just 10 ingredients and they are most likely in your cabinet already if you follow a grain free or gluten free diet:

  • semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use this dairy free, paleo version)
  • coconut flour
  • blanched almond flour
  • baking soda
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • pumpkin puree
  • maple syrup
  • ghee
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract

I just use canned pumpkin puree because it’s just easier, but you can use leftover cooked pumpkin if you have that on hand for an even better flavor! I’ve used fresh pumpkin for making grain free pumpkin bread before, and it really does make the bread more tasty and pumpkin-y.

Tips for Making Marbled Paleo Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

Here are some tips and substitutions to make this delicious and healthy gluten free pumpkin bread:

  • Make sure you are using pure pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie mix. The latter is filled with sugar and other spices and flavorings.
  • If you don’t have ghee, you can substitute with coconut oil.
  • Use blanched almond flour and NOT almond meal. Almond meal will make the texture more dense.
  • I do not recommend you substitute the flours with anything else.
  • When folding in melted chocolate chips, make sure to fold with a rubber spatula just a few times so you can see the marbling in the final product.

I recommend you enjoy with a hot mug of coffee because it’s just the perfect combination with this chocolatey and decadent grain free pumpkin bread!

Paleo Zucchini Cornbread Without Corn (Nut Free)

This delicious and easy paleo zucchini cornbread recipe is made without grains or corn, but still has that cornbread flavor, and packed with healthy veggies!

Paleo Zucchini Cornbread Without Corn in a cast iron skillet

I really love cornbread. It’s one of those treats that I couldn’t get enough of since childhood and I recently had a huge craving for it. Now that too much corn can bother my digestion, I decided to create a corn-free, grain-free paleo cornbread recipe and I was surprised by how much it resembled real cornbread!

Paleo Zucchini Cornbread Recipe

This grain free coconut flour cornbread may not taste EXACTLY like real cornbread, but all the delicious elements are there. It is fluffy and soft in the inside while being crusty and crunchy on the outside, and the combination of coconut flour and honey gives it a wonderful subtle sweetness.

Adding zucchini makes this traditionally cold-weather side dish a summery feel, and it’s an amazing way to sneak in veggies without really being able to taste it much. Plus, it gives this zucchini cornbread recipe pretty green specks and I just love serving this as a BBQ dish side.

How to Make Paleo Zucchini Cornbread Recipe

Just like most baked bread recipes, this coconut flour cornbread so easy to make! You mix the dry ingredients together, and then the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Once you combine the two together, all you have to do is fold in the grate zucchini at the end before pouring the batter into the prepared pan. Finally, you bake the whole thing for 40-45 minutes. That’s it! Trust me, this paleo cornbread recipe is definitely worth turning on the oven for even in the hot summer.

A Few Things to Note About Paleo Zucchini Cornbread Recipe

  • You don’t have to squeeze out the moisture from the grated zucchini. The water content is actually what gives this paleo cornbread recipe that fluffy, delicious texture that you taste in real cornbread!
  • The batter may seem a bit dry and thick, but that’s perfectly fine. As it bakes in the oven, the zucchini will release its moisture so the final product will definitely not be dry.
  • Make sure to give 30 minutes for the zucchini cornbread to cool before slicing, or it may fall apart.
  • I didn’t make this recipe too sweet, because everyone likes different levels of sweetness. Serve with honey on the side so anyone who like their cornbread a bit sweeter can drizzle some on top before eating.
  • You can’t really taste the flavor or texture of the zucchini, so this is a great way to sneak in healthy veggies for kids!
  • If you want to reheat leftovers, you can gently toast slices on the stovetop with a bit of oil, or you can place it in the oven or even the air fryer for a few minutes!

I personally love to eat these yummy zucchini cornbread slices toasted with a pat of butter. It feels like such a treat while being healthy, and it definitely fulfills my cornbread craving. I hope you enjoy this easy and delicious paleo cornbread recipe as a side for your warm weather BBQs!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

This super easy and delicious paleo keto bread is made with all clean ingredients with only 2 grams of net carbs! Such a healthy way to enjoy bread without spiking up your blood sugar.

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love my toasts in all forms, especially avocado toasts. I usually just buy gluten free bread because they are easy and convenient, but lately, I’ve been sticking to a lower carb diet because I feel so much better that way. So, in order to keep my toast habit going, I decided to make my own paleo keto bread, and I’ve been loving it!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread Recipe

This paleo keto bread loaf recipe is so easy and so fluffy. The prep time is so quick, because all you have to do is mix the ingredients together before pouring the batter into the baking pan before throwing it in the oven.

The base is made with low carb almond flour, and I just love how the texture is so much like actual bread! It’ll definitely fulfill your bread cravings without spiking up your blood sugar, whether you eat it alone or top it with your favorite spread and/or toppings.

Using the Correct Psyllium Husk

This paleo keto bread recipe uses psyllium husk powder to help with the bread-y texture. It’s actually quite easy to find these days, especially if you search online. However, not all psyllium husk powders are the same. Some of them, when baked, actually imparts a bluish-purple color to the baked good which can be quite off-putting.

I found that this psyllium husk powder is high quality, works well, and doesn’t change the color of my bread, and I’ve baked with it several times now. However, if you have another brand already on hand and the purple color doesn’t bother you, feel free to use it in this recipe because it won’t affect the flavor at all!

What to Expect With This Paleo Keto Bread

Just like most grain free breads, this bread will not rise like a regular, flour bread. Yes, it will rise some, but don’t expect it to double in size. Feel free to double the recipe and use the same sized pan if you want a true loaf-sized bread. You may need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

Also, this bread will be light and airy, and not hardy and crusty. I love toasting each slice before serving to give it a little more texture, then topping with mashed avocados or cream cheese.

It’s such a great way to enjoy bread on a low carb diet, so I hope you enjoy!
