Do you have an abundance of zucchini right now?  Then you are probably scrambling to find every  zucchini recipe known to man.  Here’s a new take on zucchini bread – Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread! This recipe uses a combination of  white whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour.  White whole wheat is lighter tasting than regular whole wheat.  This recipe makes a perfect zucchini bread.

What is white whole wheat flour?

White wheat flour is from white wheat berries instead of the red wheat berries that makes traditional whole wheat flour. The white wheat berries are slightly sweeter and lighter in color and flavor.  White whole wheat flour has all the nutritional value as traditional whole wheat flour. I like to use white whole wheat flour when baking recipes with whole wheat flour.

Three whole cups of shredded zucchini goes into this bread!  This is key when you are trying to use up all your zucchini!

Can I freeze this bread?

Yes, this zucchini bread can be frozen. I often make several batches of this bread.  Once it is cooled, I slice and then place loaves into freezer bags and pop them into the freezer.  When needed, just pull out of freezer, thaw and eat!

Some other recipes using zucchini include zucchini and ricotta stuffed chicken breasts, chocolate zucchini muffins and zucchini cheddar pancakes.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  2. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, oil, vanilla and brown sugar together.

  3. Add to dry ingredients. Stir. The mixture will be very dry.
  4. Add zucchini. Stir in. The mixture will still seem too dry. Wait a few minutes and come back to stir again. The zucchini will have begun to release its excess moisture.

      White whole wheat flour is so great to bake with; extra nutrition without too heavy of a taste.

    Kathy, this loaf looks to die for! I’ll give you my address for shipping purposes. Just kidding! And for reason, I find the whole shredding zucchini to be very relaxing. Weird! right. Just enjoy it. I appreciate the wheat flour too making it a tad healthier. Thanks!
