Apple Zucchini Bread

We are still working our way through our Autumn bounty, can you believe it? I decided to play around with an apple/zucchini combo to kill two birds with one stone and came up with this Apple Zucchini Bread. It’s not an overly sweet bread, so my boys who expect chocolate chips in even their banana bread weren’t big fans, but it ‘s a nice fall bread that would go well with a cup of coffee, tea or cider! The recipe makes two loafs, which I like, because I just wrap one up to freeze for another time.

  1. That looks delish! Off to pin it!

  2. Apples with zucchini! Why have I never heard of that? That sounds sooo delicious!

  3. Oh sounds delicious. Love the versatility of zuchhini. I also love that it’s not an overly sweet bread but you could easily spread some honey or jam on it if that’s your thing 😉

  4. You can’t go wrong with these two ingredients. I can only imagine how moist this break is.

  5. Looks delicious! I love sneaking in some veggies whenever I can!

  6. I still remember the first time my mom made Zucchini bread for our family. My brother and I were grossed out at the thought of Zucchini in the loaf but after trying it we both LOVED it. I don’t know about my brother but I still enjoy it once in a while! Your recipe looks yummy esp. with the apple too! Thanks for sharing!

    • my kids are always grossed out by the thought of zucchini and carrots in their cake and then they love it! lol so funny!

    I’m so happy to see a zucchini recipe since I always have so much of it in the fall. This would be great for with tea!

  8. This would taste great with the lemon ginger tea I’m drinking right now… it looks moist and rich, yet not too much like cake. I’ve never thought of combining apples with zucchini before — but I think it works!Yum!

  9. Great way to use up zucchini!!
