Tips for Making The Best Keto Zucchini Bread
Add the Grated Zucchini to the Bowl Last
Mix all of the dry ingredients first, followed by the wet ingredients, and finally the grated zucchini. Adding the zucchini last tends to create a little less mess during the mixing process.
Do Not Overcook
Be sure to pull the bread out of the oven at the right time. If it is overcooked, it will lose its moisture.

How to Store Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Leftovers
If you find yourself with leftovers of this pumpkin zucchini bread, it tastes just as good to serve as leftovers. Here are some tips for storing your leftovers.
If you plan to enjoy the leftover bread in the next day or two, I have found that if you double wrap the bread before you place it in the fridge, it will keep it from becoming stale. The double wrapping holds in that sweet moisture that zucchini is so well known for. Technically you can store it on the countertop, but I happen to prefer the fridge method.
If you want to store your leftovers longer term, you can! Place the leftover bread in an air-tight container or tightly sealed freezer bag and store it in your freezer for up to 3 months.
