Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

20130703-232816.jpgI am starting to feel like we are having zucchini and squash coming out of our ears! I don’t stress about this though because these are some of my favorite summer veggies. They are not only good for grilling and stir-frying, but also make an awesome bread! When we have more than we can use before they start to go bad, I simply grate and freeze the zucchini and squash in 2 cup quantities and freeze in quart size freezer bags. It makes having zucchini bread in the winter months a breeze! If you notice, I am using the terms zucchini and squash. Either work for making this bread, or a mixture if you feel like it. Zucchini bread has a better sound to it than squash bread. Either way, this is a delightful treat that I look forward to making when we are blessed to have these summer veggies on hand. Making these loaves with whole wheat flour makes it even heartier and healthier and I have no problem serving these for breakfast or for snacks. I hope you enjoy this moist, healthy and delicious recipe of whole wheat zucchini bread as much as my family does. -Shelley. 20130704-002831.jpg
