Our zucchini bread is made from real ingredients. For example, we use raw honey, zucchini, banana, and dried elderberries to name a few. It is a one-bowl recipe to save you some washing. To boost our bread nutrition we substituted 1 of the whole wheat flour cups with oats and walnuts. This makes the bread extra fluffy and soft. Just look at how many nutrients this bread has: antioxidants, omega-3 fats, protein, fiber, Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E manganese, magnesium, copper, potassium, iron, zinc, choline, selenium, iodine, folate, chromium, and biotin.

Ingredients for Zucchini Bread

Wet Ingredients

Banana

We use a banana for our zucchini bread to sweeten up our bread with a natural ingredient. Bananas are rich in potassium and fiber and low in sodium. They are a good source of Vitamins B and C, manganese, copper, and biotin.

Almond Milk

Almond milk is a healthy plant-based milk. We use different types of milk in our recipes to boost diversity in the nutrients we eat. For example, almond milk is rich in Vitamin E which is a great antioxidant. Check out our article about goat milk and details about animal milk. We also have an article explaining milk fats.

Raw Honey

As a main sweetener for the zucchini bread recipe, we use raw honey. Honey has vitamins, minerals, amino acids, iron, and zinc. It is a great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial agent. Just ensure that you are using raw honey as opposed to processed ones.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a superfood. It is composed of natural saturated healthy fat. It is also a good source of Vitamin E.

Eggs for Zucchini Bread

It is not a surprise that Gaston (in the Disney movie The Beaty and The Beast) eats so many eggs and has become so strong. Eggs are one of the main ingredients I use almost every day at home. They are rich in protein, healthy fats, and vitamins A, B, D, and E, choline, iron, selenium, iodine, and folate.

Zucchini

I find it difficult to cook zucchini in a way that my family will eat them. Zucchinis are healthy so I try to include them in our diet. For example, zucchinis are a great antioxidant, rich in folate, potassium, manganese, magnesium, and Vitamins A and C. Hence, I came to the last resort – include them in sweet bread! Who wouldn’t eat sweet bread?

Dry Ingredients for Zucchini Bread

Whole Wheat Flour

We use whole wheat flour for our zucchini bread. Whole wheat flour is rich in vitamins (B), fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese, proteins, and antioxidants. Many people fear gluten that is found in whole wheat flour. However, unless you have celiac disease or any other health issues when consuming gluten, whole wheat flour (bread) could be a good addition to your diet since it contains many nutrients.

Oats

I use oats several times a week in different ways (oatmeal, pancakes, oat balls, etc). It is because oats are a superfood that is extremely healthy. If you have a choice, buy gluten-free unprocessed oats. Oats have many health benefits such as improving our digestive, immune system, and cardiovascular systems. Oats are rich in many vitamins (B) and minerals such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, biotin, magnesium, chromium, and zinc. They are also a good source of protein and fiber.

Walnuts for Zucchini Bread

As the shape of the walnut suggests, walnuts are great for our brains! In this zucchini bread recipe, I reduced the cups of flour needed by adding other different nutritious ingredients such as oats and walnuts. As you know, we try to make our recipe as nutritious as possible. Walnuts are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, hence why our brains would love it if we consume more walnuts! Walnuts are also rich in copper, manganese, folic acid, phosphorus, vitamins B and E, and biotin.

Elderberry

Elderberries are a superfood. It is a great ingredient to add to your diet. Just make sure you cook it and don’t consume it raw. Elderberries are a great antioxidant. They have vitamins A, B, and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.

Other Ingredients for Zucchini Bread

We use cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and pink Himalayan sea salt for this recipe.

Equipment

  • We use a food processor to grind the walnuts and shred the zucchini. Feel free to use other kitchen equipment to achieve the same goal.
  • We also used a mixer to make the batter but a whisk may also work.
  • A plastic knife is handy to loosen up the bread so you don’t damage the loaf pan
  • Since we shred the zucchini with the peel (to include more nutrients in the recipe), it is best to use a vegetable brush to clean and wash the zucchini.

Notes

  • I sometimes use regular milk instead of almond milk. Coconut milk is also a great milk to use in this recipe. Check out our goat milk article about different types of milk.
  • Sometimes I will also rotate the batter midway through the baking (around 20-30 minutes into the baking) to ensure the bread is baked evenly.
  • I sprinkle the bottom of the greased pan with flour prior to pouring the batter. It is a critical step to ensure you can separate the batter from the pan once the bread is baked.
  • The 2 tbsp coconut oil is measured in liquid as opposed to when it is in a hard condition
  • I like to grind the walnuts for this recipe. However, if you prefer you can use whole walnuts. Maybe just reduce the volume or the batter may become too crunchy.
