Zucchini Oatmeal Bread

by Courtney on July 17, 2012

Zucchini Oatmeal Bread! (see recipe below)


What’s that you say? Am I eating breakfast again?


Well yes, I guess I technically am. But it’s lunch. Winking smile

I was actually really craving eggs for breakfast this morning, but couldn’t manage to have anything with any sort of heat to it. On Friday evening, I was lucky enough to get my hands on another batch of Kathryn’s chickens’ eggs and have been dying to have some ever since. They’re seriously just so good.


So for lunch, I decided to make myself a scramble with 2 whole eggs, diced tomatoes, fresh basil, and provolone cheese.

On the side, I had another piece of Zucchini Oatmeal Bread topped with peanut butter.


I’ll tell ya…I’m totally lovin’ on this stuff.


(I made sure to eat both edge pieces yesterday while they were still warm and crispy) Winking smile


I’m so thankful that Christina shared this recipe with me. She said that it came from her mom, which she slightly adapted, and then she passed it on to me. Then I slightly adapted her version…


And now I’m passing it on to all of you!

So far, it’s been great topped with honey butter, cinnamon cream cheese, and peanut butter.


It’s a winner.

Zucchini is a wonderfood, isn’t it? Pretty bread.

I had to chuckle about the part where you ate both ends of the bread. You’re a smart lady. Those are the best parts of any bread. We always fought over the “heals” growing up :)

Right? I always want the heel pieces. I’ve started baking my bread recipes in a 9×13″ pan so that I get more crispy edges!

Breakfast looks delicious. I love the end pieces. And you’ve named two of my fave ingredients. Can’t ever go wrong with a good zucchini bread – especially when it has oatmeal in it. ;)

Love this recipe- bookmarked for when the baking urge hits next! It’s funny because I love the heads of freshly made bread yet always avoid those slices in store-bought loaves.

I have a quick question on your recipe. I just ran out of whole wheat flour but do have regular… would the measurements be the same? Also do you have to use “quick” oats? can I use the old fashioned oats? Looks delicious!!


8 Courtney July 17, 2012 at 2:02 pm

I would say to sub whatever flour you have and that should be fine (the original recipe called for 2 cups of all purpose, I believe). And old fashioned oats will be fine, they’ll just give your bread a bit heartier texture. :)


9 Annie July 12, 2013 at 3:25 pm

I will probably use white whole wheat for both cups… That’s about the only flour I use anymore. Glad to know that we can use ol fashion oats – much healthier. Thanks so much for a recipe that uses applesauce! Can’t wait to try this!

Looks delicous and healthy! I bet it would be great with maple almond butter, yum!

Yum! I really want to try this. I wish I had a garden, but I guess I can just go to the store & buy some zucchini! ;-)

It makes me laugh at my teenager self when the thought of zucchini would make me dry heave and now I am drooling at a picture of zucchini bread. So glad my taste buds changed to appreciate things like this!

Believe it or not, I’ve never tried zucchini bread before! I may have to add this to my recipe rotation. And I’ll definitely eat the ends first!!

Well, I’m thinking I’m especially lucky that I just bought 3 huge zucchini, my neighbour brought me over 4 home grown zucchinis, and my mom gave me another 3. I am set. This looks wonderful!

recipe sounds delicious! I’m thinking I really need to jump on this zucchini wagon…

I just got zucchini, yellow squash and cucumbers from my garden and they were huge! Nothing like real, fresh, home-grown food.

You must make these! Made them for girls night and they rock. I added extra dk choc chips and added some cocoa and subbed agave for honey. And underbaked. Yum! And “healthy” enough for breakfast if they make it that long!

I made this yesterday and realized it was missing something, just kind of plain, though I know it should be great; then it hit me SALT! Is there a reason the recipe is salt free? Made this again tonight with 1/2 tsp salt and TERRIFIC! Love that it uses so much zucchini. I always try to pick my zukes small for pastas and shaved for salads, but I inevitably miss one or two only to discover some giant behemoth of a zuke hiding in the shadows to the left…
