A keto zucchini bread with cheese & rosemary makes a delicious savoury bread that can be simply enjoyed sliced and slathered with butter. Made with almond flour this bread is also gluten free.

Zucchini, Cheese & Rosemary Bread - Divalicious Recipes (1)

This is one of my first keto zucchini bread recipes but is still one of our favourite keto bread recipes, despite our tastes changing from recipe to recipe! Although the bread is dense, the zucchini keeps the bread moist when stored in the fridge. The rosemary goes well with the cheese and smells great baking, but rosemary always does!

How to make zucchini cheese bread

Making this could not be easier, you simply throw the ingredients into a bowl, mix and bake. Slice and eat. It's just that simple!

The ingredients used for this low carb zucchini bread recipe are:

  • Zucchini - grated but not squeezed to remove moisture
  • Almond Flour - Coconut flour could be used as a replacement. I'd use ½ cup and increase the eggs if the mixture looked too thick.
  • Cheddar cheese - A good quality Cheddar is best. Cheaper ones can be a bit oily when baking.
  • Eggs - 2 medium eggs
  • Rosemary - Fresh rosemary is best for the aromatic smell when this bread is baking.
  • Baking powder & salt - standard for any baked recipe

How to store zucchini cheese bread

I store this zucchini bread in the fridge and it kept happily for 3 days. As the zucchini bread cools, the cheese will help it firm up. I sliced it and fried it in the morning along with m eggs. It make a delicious savoury breakfast.

Recipe Tips

You could play around with this recipe and perhaps separate the eggs, whisk the egg whites and fold them into the mixture to make the bread a bit more lighter in texture. Maybe add another egg. I rather enjoyed the heavy texture but might play around with it myself again.

If you want to bake a zucchini bread with coconut flour, try this zucchini pecan bread.

    At first, I did not think this bread had much taste. Then I toasted it, and it is delicious! Maybe I'd lost my taste. I waited and tried it again 2 days later.
    Thank you so much for such a wonderful recipe.
    Have you had a "toasted" bread tomato sandwich?
    Toasting makes all the difference. Add mayo, salt and pepper.


    • Angela Coleby

    This bread sounds delicious! I would like to try it as muffins. Do you have any thoughts about anything I should change for muffins?


    • Angela Coleby

      The cooking time may need to be reduced but I think others have used this mixture as muffins with success.

    Hello! Could you use another type of cheese? Would Mozzarella cheese work?


    • Angela Coleby

      I think it would work.


  6. Debbie

    I used both, plus some chives and garlic. It just came out of the oven and it smells amazing!!


    • Angela Coleby

    Did you ever try other savory spices to add like onion powder or flakes?

    Hi, in your 'about me' you sound a bit like me, 3 cats, had 2 dogs, 5 chickens, love horses and all other animals and live in sunny South Australia 'cept it's winter and miserable at the moment. Can't wait to try your recipes.


    • Angela Coleby

      Welcome Anne! I'd have more animals if I had the space and money! If it makes you feel any better, there seems to be a couple of rain clouds in the sky here today..hee hee! Happy baking!
