  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 mins
  • Yield: 1 9x5 loafS 1x

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white, unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 11/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium zucchini, about 1 pound, will be about 2 cups once shredded
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup plain, non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, with the oven rack in the middle position. Line 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with 2 sheets parchment paper, 1 running the length and 1 running the width, both cut to fit. This will make it extremely easy to lift the zucchini bread out of the pan. I use binder clips to clamp down the parchment paper so it stays in place.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Shred the zucchini using the coarse holes on a box grater, both peel and flesh. Place the shredded zucchini in a clean dish towel (or strong paper towels), and squeeze out any extra moisture. Set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the shredded zucchini, white sugar, honey, greek yogurt, eggs, and coconut oil. Stir to combine.
  5. Transfer the shredded zucchini and wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Fold until combined.
  6. Transfer the batter to the parchment lined loaf pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a wooden inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then lift it out of the pan using the parchment paper and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
  7. Wrap bread in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for 3 days.
