This is one amazing zucchini recipe – Molasses Zucchini Whole Wheat Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips.
This is definitely a lot different than your typical zucchini bread. The combination may sound a bit strange but I’m telling you, it really works. Max was nervous about trying it because zucchini is one of the few things that he truly dislikes.
Thankfully he’s always game to at least give things a try as long as he doesn’t have to finish it if he doesn’t like it. As I figured would happen, he loved this bread, like LOVED it. So much so that he asked me to make some more when I inherited a mega-sized zucchini from a friend. He said, “It doesn’t even taste like zucchini”. I’m sure it helped that the flavor is completely masked with the taste of molasses, walnuts, and let’s not forget chocolate chips!
I love that this recipe is made with 100% whole wheat flour. We’ve been trying to eat with whole wheat more and more and I’m always on the lookout for recipes that aren’t just partly whole wheat but are whole wheat through and through.
The problem is that whole wheat flour can give baked goods a drier, denser consistency then all-purpose recipes, so it can be difficult to find things that are truly crave-worthy. With this recipe, the zucchini makes it so moist you don’t even notice the whole wheat. And, as proved by the zucchini hating boy, it is definitely crave-worthy.
