Healthy Zucchini Bread Recipe!

Hello lovelies,

DAMN it’s been a hot minute since I uploaded something healthy on my page. Apologies for those of you who prefer these kind of bakes, Easter always inspires the more indulgent bakes but don’t worry, we’re back now and I’ve got some smashing recipes coming your way.

Have I become slightly loaf cake/bread mad? Possibly yes! At this moment in time I’m thoroughly enjoying coming up with different combinations of ingredients to bake within a loaf cake/bread. I think there’s something extremely satisfying about getting the ingredients within a loaf cake/bread perfect.

Okay, so you may or may not be questioning my ingredient idea for todays loaf. I don’t blame you, the sound of zucchini within a cake/bread kinda makes me question myself but you have to take my word for it, when I say, that this is one of my favourite ever breads I’ve done. It has totally changed the game for me!

I was looking online for something a little more on the healthier side to share with you all, when I came across a recipe using zucchini as their main ingredient in their loaf bread which instantly got me inspired.

If you’ve been around here a while, you’ll know last year I shared with you my vegan muffins recipe which used courgette as the main ingredient – let’s just say they went down an absolute treat with you guys and instantly became my favourite muffin recipe. Therefore, I’ve got a good feeling you’ll love todays bake just as much because I for sure am obsessed!

Before I ramble on for any longer about how good this zucchini bread is… shall we just get on with the recipe? Get your things together, the recipe is below.

How To Make Zucchini Bread:

  • Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line a loaf tin with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
  • Secondly, in a blender, blend the rolled oats until they resemble flour and set aside.
  • Next, shred the zucchini over a bowl. Once shredded, using some kitchen roll and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  • Now, in a large bowl, whisk together the 1tbsp of olive oil, 1 egg, 170g of honey, 140g of almond milk and your shredded zucchini.

  • Fold in 40g of chocolate chips.
  • Pour the zucchini batter into the loaf tin and sprinkle over the remaining 10g of chocolate chips.
  • Place the batter into the oven and allow to bake for 50 minutes, until a skewer placed into the centre comes out clean.
  • Finally, once baked, allow the zucchini bread to cool in the loaf tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool further.

That’s your Zucchini Bread prepared, baked and ready for you to enjoy!

Honestly, I cannot put into words how yummy todays bake is. It’s packed full of flavour, is super moist and it melts in your mouth – it’s blooming delicious.

Easy & super quick to make, what more could you possibly ask for?

Now I know zucchini doesn’t sound like it belongs in a bake but just take a moment to try it for yourself within this bread, i can almost guarantee that your opinion will change. I know mine did.

Let me know in the comments below if you make this yourself and I’d you do, what your thoughts are on it. Are you surprised?

Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo

    This flavoured bread looks delicious. Is Zucchini basically cucumber?

      Honestly, so many fresh veggies can be used in deserts and it always tastes so delicious! This bread is super yummy but you can’t actually taste the zucchini incase people were worried. Thank you so much for commenting Xo

      It really is delicious! It’s so so similar to a loaf cake, I think it’s just named ‘bread’ rather than cake haha. I hope your mum loves this! Thank you so much for commenting Xo

    My daughter used to have a courgette and lime cake at her nursery and this looks quite similar – I’ll have to see if she’d like to make us some :)

    You know what, I really dislike zucchini. The texture becomes too soft and I cannot bring myself to eat them. But I am sure I can make an exception if they are in cake form! This sounds brilliant indeed, thank you for sharing it Elle x
