Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

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!

  11. James Thomas :

    I’m craving for zucchini bread I might try out this recipe right now.

  12. I just made this recipe. It was nice to see a whole wheat recipe.

    It came out beautiful! The crust was beautiful. Moisture was perfect. And it was not sweet. Just like we like it. I ate a slice and thought it tasted very bitter. Figured out it was the flavor of way too much baking soda. So if you make this recipe I recommend 1 tsp as all other recipes. Just thought it would be helpful. I have wasted a lot of expensive ingredients on this…if the baking soda were in proportion I think it would be splendid. It was maybe put in their to compensate for the whole wheat but ruined the flavor.

    Thanks for creating easy recipes for us to make. Consider adjusting the baking soda;-)
