Sweet Zucchini Bread! It’s a great way to use up those remaining zucchinis from the garden, and the perfect yummy treat for breakfast or a snack!

Zucchini Sweet Bread

I love zucchini! So I made sure to plant it in my garden this summer. And if you know anything about this vegetable you know that it grows like gang-busters. So it wasn’t a surprise that when summer started to wind down I had quite a bit left over. And instead of letting it go to the birds, I took the time to shred and freeze bags of it for later in the year.

One of the things I like to make with leftover zucchini is, zucchini bread. Naturally, right?!? And I specifically had a craving for the recipe that my mom made for us kids while growing up. Everything about it was delicious! It was definitely a “comfort food” type of goodie for me as a child.

To be honest though, I don’t think I’ve made this bread once since I’ve been living on my own. So it was a sweet surprise to come back home from a Minnesota trip this past year to find her zucchini bread, chili and chili fixings in our fridge. That really blessed my heart that day! What a wonderful momma I have!!! 🙂

So if you’re in the mood for something yummy and comforting, AND need a way to use up some of that zucchini, here’s what to do.
