Zucchini Bread

Whenever I make zucchini bread I think of my sister in law Sherri. Every time we would visit her house she would make zucchini bread using zucchini from her garden. I’m embarrassed to say I would never try it. Zucchini and bread didn’t seem like they belonged together. As I’ve gotten older and matured my tastes, I finally gave zucchini bread a try. Boy, had I been missing out. Turning my nose up at something so delicious. Shame on me. I have adapted a recipe with whole grain flour,ย sucanat, and expeller pressed coconut oil. You can make it with all purpose flour, white sugar and canola oil if you choose.

You’ll need:

1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sucanat
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup expeller pressed coconut oil
2 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zucchini

Preheat oven to 350 F.ย  Grease and Flour 9 x 5 loaf pan.

Shred zucchini. I used my hand held box shredder, large hole side.ย Watch your fingers ๐Ÿ™‚
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

Add oil, eggs and vanilla.

Mix on medium speed until combined.

Mix in shredded zucchini. Batter is thick. Mine is a darker color because of the whole wheat flour and sucanat.
Spread into loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. After cool wrap in foil to keep fresh. Slice and eat ๐Ÿ™‚

        Great zucchini bread – thanks for the recipe. I had a giant (left on the vine too long) zuke and this is the perfect solution to “What do I do with this oversized zucchini?” My first loaf disappeared in one evening, so tonight I’m making another.
