Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time55 mins
Course: Breakfast, Snack
Keyword: bread, zucchini
Servings: 1 loaf
Author: Kathryne Taylor

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup walnuts or pecans chopped (optional)
  • cup olive oil extra virgin
  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk or water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • cups zucchini grated
  • cups whole wheat flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 9” x 5” loaf pan to prevent the bread from sticking.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil and honey. Beat them with a whisk until they are combined. Add the eggs and beat well. 
  • Add the milk, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg, and whisk to blend. Switch to a big spoon and stir in the zucchini, then add the flour and stir just until combined. Gently fold in the nuts.
  • Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and sprinkle lightly with additional cinnamon. If you’d like a pretty swirled effect, run the tip of a knife across the batter in a zig-zag pattern.
  • Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes before slicing it with a sharp, serrated knife.
  • Store in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
