I would be lying if I said blueberry zucchini bread was my favorite way to use all that homegrown zucchini because if I had a choice, it would be frosted zucchini brownies every time. But since I’m not very good at eating my fruits and vegetables, blueberry zucchini bread is a tasty Plan B.

I’m pretty sure a slice of blueberry zucchini bread isn’t a full serving of fruits and/or vegetables, so I like to have at least two. And the fact I like to substitute applesauce for half the oil—and Splenda for half the sugar if I’m feeling extra healthy—makes me feel even less guilty about indulging in this delicious quick bread.

The recipe calls for baking the bread in four mini loaf pans (this mini loaf pan is a great choice if you don’t own one), and it’s true, mini loaves are the perfect gifting size. But sometimes you have to bake them in two full-size pans because the only gifting you’re doing is gifting this bread right into your mouth.

Note: A large cookie scoop is awesome for dispersing batter evenly among loaf pans.

    I think I have a recipe for this from my grandmother, but either way, it’s going on my must make list.

    I have a Question

    Its says one T of cinnamon would that be one tsp or one tablespoons
    Plus it says one pint of blueberrys would that be one or two cups of blueberrys

    Emily Hill Reply:

    It’s 1 tablespoon for the cinnamon and about 12 ounces of blueberries. I’m not sure about how many cups as it’s by weight on the package. Hope that helps!
