Zucchini Oat Bread

 Zucchini Oat Bread

Fall in love with your favorite breads for Autumn. This bread will be added to your list of favorites if it’s not already on there.

Homemade, moist and tasty. You can’t get much better than that.

If you are a bread lover such as myself, you will absolutely fall in love all over again. A warm slice with some butter spread on top makes this a wonderful breakfast or snack!

I must say I made this when my garden was producing zucchini quite well. All of a sudden a month quickly passes by and I realized my garden had been forgotten and despised. I have dreaded the garden as of lately. Overgrown and messy makes me promptly avoid this section of our yard. Unfortunately my despise and hatred is only making it look worse.

Due to my distaste of our garden as of lately, I have had no more zucchini grow, it must sense my hatred for it right now and my utter lack of care. My watermelon got eaten by some animal and we have yet to try any watermelon this season. My beans are overgrown so much so that they taste rubbery and my tomatoes have split due to the rain. What a mess. This is what makes me walk away. Oh the cycle I have created.

Enough of my rant, zucchini producing or not, there’s a store right around the corner which will allow my continual making of this bread; no garden needed. :)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of shredded zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups flour (Or whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Use a food processor to shred the zucchini.

In a stand mixer combine eggs, oil, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon. Mix very well.

Add in dry mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

Fold in the zucchini with a spatula.

Grease 2 bread pans and split the mixture between the two.

Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. All ovens are different. My oven is on the cooler side and everything takes longer. So start with the least amount of time and use the toothpick check to conquer the right time. :)

Allow to cool for ten minutes or so. Cut a slice and smother with butter! Enjoy!
