If you ever find yourself with extra zucchini on hand, this is the perfect way to use it up!

Packed with flavor and nutrition, the bakery-style zucchini loaf is great for serving to guests or taking as a healthy on-the-go snack.

The zucchini gives sweetness and moisture to the recipe without all the added fat and calories, and it can easily be made a day in advance or sliced and frozen to enjoy any time you’re craving zucchini bread.

Easy Zucchini Quick Bread

To make the zucchini bread recipe, simply combine everything in a bowl, spread into a 9×5 pan, and let the oven do the rest.

I’ve found that the easiest way to grate the summer squash is to use a food processor.

There’s no need to peel your zucchini first – the skin is full of fiber and nutrition and gives the loaf that perfect green-flecked finish of classic zucchini bread.

Healthy Zucchini Bread Options

This recipe is super-customizable!

Stir in a handful of raisins, dried pineapple, or shredded coconut, a sprinkle of cinnamon or lemon zest, or—my personal favorite—mini chocolate chips.

The zucchini loaf can be topped with cream cheese or powdered sugar, spread with coconut butter or almond butter, or it’s even delicious served plain with no frosting at all. 

The quick bread can be gluten free, low fat, oil free, egg free, dairy free, whole grain, and vegan.

And the best part is that it tastes like eating cake for breakfast!

Feel free to substitute yellow squash for the zucchini, coconut sugar for refined sugar, milk of choice (such as almond milk) for the oil, and spelt, oat, or gluten free all purpose flour for white flour to make it healthier.

If you don’t have a loaf pan, try this recipe for Zucchini Muffins.

The recipe works with spelt, white (all purpose), oat, or gluten free all purpose flour. I haven’t tried any others here, so be sure to report back if you experiment. If desired, you can stir a handful of chocolate chips into the batter or add them to the top before baking. I prefer the oil version’s texture and flavor, but if you’re used to oil free baked goods it’s fine to sub with milk of choice.
