Do You Peel Zucchini?

A popular question when using Zucchini in a recipe is do you peel the Zucchini? The quick answer is no. Do not peel the Zucchini just give it a quick rinse, dry it, cut off the ends, then shred. Zucchini is mostly water so it will melt into your recipe, which is also why it is important to include other ingredients that becomes the dominant flavor over the Zucchini. I have made Healthy Zucchini Bread with 2 ½ cups shredded Zucchini and 2 cups with the latter being slightly less moist but not dry either.

Selecting a Coconut Oil

For this recipe my preference is unrefined coconut oil since it is a less processed form of coconut oil. Unrefined coconut oil is made from coconut meat that goes through a quicker process than refined coconut retaining the coconut flavor. To learn more about coconut oil refer to this article. Then you can make your own decision on what type of Coconut Oil to use in this Healthy Zucchini Bread recipe.

Healthy Zucchini Bread Preparation

Get ready to make a super easy, super quick bread! Start with measuring and sifting the dry ingredients twice to remove any lumps and combine the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Grate 2 ½ cups Zucchini which takes very little time due to the water volume. In a smaller bowl mix together the wet ingredients and melt the coconut oil. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and then blend in the grated Zucchini and chopped walnuts. It would also be fun to stir in ½ cup of dark chocolate chips! Pour into two prepared baking pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-minutes. Remove from the oven and cool until you can handle the pans to remove the Healthy Zucchini Bread. Be sure to enjoy a warm slice!

Once the Healthy Zucchini Bread has cooled cut it into 20-slices (the approved serving) and wrap tightly with Saran Wrap, place in a freezer friendly bag and place in the freezer. My preparation for lunch starts the night before by taking one serving out of the freezer to unthaw in the refrigerator.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! It means a lot! With my leftover Zucchini I made the best ever cookies. Will post next week. 🍽

    1. I never had it until I started 21 day fix and needed healthy snacks. Of course I like mine with butter but then again I consider butter a good fat. 💕

      1. Funny how one time the media reported margarine was better for you than butter! Now we find out low fat, substitutes are not healthy for you! I love a good butter. In particular Kerrygold butter.

  1. Boy, what’s not to like about this bread. We never peel our zukes as all the joy in those peelings. I’m saving this on on my “Zucchini is my Hero” board for when we start picking local zucchini. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I hope you enjoy the recipe. I am glad to hear you do not peel Zucchini either! 💕 Makes the bread look so nice with the green peels.

  2. Oh that’s an interesting recipe! I love banana bread but I haven’t heard of zucchini bread before. Gotta give it a try one day!
    I use coconut oil for almost everything that involves fat (and definitely everything that involves frying) and I always use the unrefined version. I don’t mind the delicate scent of coconut in my meals, sweet or savoury – doesn’t matter!

    1. The Zucchini bread is awesome and is moist. It is great with or without butter. I too love using coconut oil. Let me know if you try the recipe. 🍽 💕
