Mom's Best Zucchini -Walnut Recipe - How to Make Quick, Easy Healthy Nut Bread

Walnut Bread with Zucchini - the best!

How to Make Quick and Easy Zucchini Nut or Walnut Bread? Well - it couldn't be easier.

Besides ease of preparation, this is the best and the easiest way ever to get my kids to eat zucchini. It has a great texture, flavor and can be held in your hand with a napkin to give relative ease of eating.

Walnuts may be substituted for pecans or any other nuts (except maybe peanuts, they are too salty).

The ingredients are economical and the whole thing takes at most an hour to prepare.

Zucchini, Tikva, or Courgette is the same great Vegetable

Growing zucchini can be fun, you never know how big they will get.

Zucchini, as pictured here, are among many vegetables which grow on the vine.  An easy plant to tend to, many home gardens include at least one zucchini vine.

Healthy Recipes are Golden!

Here is the Zucchini Recipe:

Combine and mix together in a large bowl:

3 cups all purpose flour,

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

3 tsp. ground cinnamon

In a separate bowl, combine

3 eggs, well - beaten

1 cup vegetable oil

2-1/4 c. white sugar

3 t. vanilla extract

2 c. grated zucchini, undrained

1 c. sorted (for shells) and chopped walnuts


Make a well in the large bowl and add the moist ingredients into the center, mixing very well.

Bake 40-60 minutes at 325 degrees F. or 165 degrees C. If I make it in two smaller pans, it seems to take less time than if I combine it into one large round pan.

As it bakes, it may develop a crack in the top. That is fine.

After checking for doneness, let it cool in the pan 20 minutes and then remove on a rack.

This bread freezes well. Ideally you can eat one loaf now and place the second in the freezer for later!

The tiny green zucchini pieces in the bread give roughage and texture as well as flavor.

Try it!


Oh nuts!

Walnuts make it great

Healthy recipes really are golden--well said! :) I'm hoping to bake loads of healthy breads for my freezer this year. Thanks for this recipe.

Like this concise format very much, btw. Voted up and bookmarked.

Ahh, nothing beats Zucchini bread! Great recipe. Very easy to follow and with those ingredients, you're bound to have great loaves. Instead of nuts, I top mine with rolled oats.

Thanks for sharing. Voted up and useful.

We love zucchini bread. I have to make a batch at least once a week. I froze shredded zucchini this year from out garden so I would have enough until we can grow it again.

I have never heard of zucchini bread, but this sounds delicious. I will have to try it. The zucchinis will be prolific soon.

@RTalloni, thanks :) I was worried if the Hub was too short, but I had said all there was to say. Thanks for your input and for stopping by.

@Joe Macho, it sounds like you've tried zucchini bread before! Rolled oats would look great, since the bread is a nice dark rich color. Thanks for your suggestion!

@mljdgulley354, glad to know that your garden fresh shredded zucchini can be frozen right off the vine. Great idea! Add eggs, flour and off you go! Thumbs up!

@tebo, you don't know what you're missing. Anything that disappears in my house within 24 hours is a hit, and this bread fits in that category. Be sure to let me know how you like it when those prolific veggies are at hand. Thank you all for commenting. ECAL

Yes, it really is. I never would have put zucchini with cinnamon, but it's a great combination for a nut bread. When you try it, I'd love to hear how it turned out. Mine is usually a little crunchy on top. Have a great day, and thanks for commenting.
