Sometimes I just need a treat. A rich, filling, carbo loaded sweet treat with just the right amount of crunch. But, call me crazy, I still need to have some type of health benefit in my dessert to remove the element of guilt. This zucchini bread is balanced with everything I need to enjoy a dessert. The week after Easter I used my superpowers to keep from chowing on my innocent children’s Easter candy so I rewarded myself with a slice (or three) of this delicious (and a little healthy) zucchini bread! Here is the recipe so that you to have some too.
You will need:
- 3 cups grated fresh zucchini (3 – 4 whole zucchini)
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tsp. molasses
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 shakes of salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cups wheat germ
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 cup walnuts
1. Shed zucchini and squeeze out excess water until you have 3 cups. Set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, sugars, oil and vanilla.
3. Add to the bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
4. all ingredients together.
5. Add drained zucchini.
6. Mix well.
7. Pour batter into 2 greased bread loaf pans.
8. Bake for 1 hour at 350°, or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.

This is literally the only way I will eat Zucchini! lol. But you are only missing one ingredient…the chocolate chips. Ok; maybe that would add back in the guilt but oh it is delicious.
I’ll sub out the regular flour for almond flour and make this recipe even healthier! We love zucchini bread here!
