So Many Zucchini Bread Recipes!
At this point in the season aren’t you ready to move on from zucchini noodles and veggie sautés? Doesn’t it seem like time to turn this prolific veggie into something sweet and delicious?
I looked through my recipe collection but wasn’t able to find a zucchini bread recipe that made me say “wow”. So, I turned to Pinterest and performed a quick search.
Oh my gosh. I am astounded by the variety zucchini bread recipes out there. Seriously, whatever you are craving, someone has come up with it.
Snickerdoodle…..in a Zucchini Bread?
The moment I saw this Snickerdoodle Zucchini Bread recipe, I knew I’d found the one.
I love snickerdoodles and anything with a sugary crust. Checking both boxes, this Snickerdoodle Zucchini Bread is an absolute winner in my book. The fact that it makes two loaves is also awesome, so I had plenty to share.
Zucchini Bread with Coconut Oil
While I’m certain that this recipe is absolutely perfect the way it was written, whenever possible I like to substitute coconut oil for vegetable oil when I cook.
Not only does this get a little bit of healthy fat into your food, because it’s naturally sweet, you can reduce the amount of added sugar.
I swapped out the vegetable oil for a cup of coconut oil and reduced the granulated sugar in the bread by ½ cup.
The result: an amazing, moist Snickerdoodle Zucchini Bread with a crumbly cinnamon sugar crust.
