I modified my Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread to make this non-chocolate quick bread with lots of cinnamon, walnuts, and vanilla. I love how this came out!! It’s not overly sweet – just enough to be perfect for enjoying with your morning coffee. Some more of my favorite healthy zucchini recipes are this Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Banana Zucchini Cake, and Pineapple Zucchini Cupcakes.

Most Asked Questions:

Do you peel zucchini for zucchini bread?

There’s no need to peel zucchini for this recipe, but if you want to hide any green stuff from your kids, you certainly can.

Do you squeeze water out of zucchini for bread?

Don’t squeeze the water out – it’s what makes the bread so moist.

How to Shred Zucchini for Bread

You can grate the zucchini with a grater or in a food processor using the shredding attachment. Grating zucchini by hand gives you a finer texture, whereas shredding results in long strands.

How to Store

Store bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator for five days.

How to Freeze

Leftover bread is perfect for freezing. You can even double the recipe and freeze half for later. I like to slice it and store the pieces in a bag with parchment paper in between so they don’t freeze together. Individually wrapping the slices in foil is another option. Thaw the bread overnight in the fridge or microwave it straight from the freezer.

Variations

  • Sweetener: If you want to use monk fruit sweetener instead of brown sugar, I am sure it would be fine.
  • No applesauce? Swap it for banana but know it will change the flavor.
  • Nuts: Sub pecans for walnuts or omit them.
  • Muffins: Make zucchini muffins instead of a loaf – bake for about 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
