Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread - A dense, spicy and delicious whole wheat bread with zucchini added for moisture and extra goodness!

We first made this Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread last summer when our crop of zucchini was exploding out in our garden! But thanks to the year-round availability of zucchini at the supermarket – this hearty and delicious bread can be made any time inspiration strikes!

Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread - A dense, spicy and delicious whole wheat bread with zucchini added for moisture and extra goodness!

This whole wheat zucchini bread is wonderfully dense – but also very moist thanks to the shredded zucchini and whole milk added to the batter. It’s made with a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flours and brown sugar, cinnamon and raisin add spice and sweetness to this delicious breakfast bread.

We love eating this whole wheat zucchini bread slathered with butter warm out of the oven. But it is also delicious sliced and lightly toasted. It’s not super sweet so it can be eaten as a savory bread as well. Enjoy!
