Brava Chef Erin
This zucchini bread is packed with zucchini to keep it moist and is flavored with warm spices. This zucchini bread is a bit healthier than other recipes as it uses more zucchini as well as olive oil and Greek yogurt instead of vegetable oil. In this recipe I peel some zucchini strands first to use as a decoration on top of the bread, but this it completely optional.
1-3 zucchini (2 cups of packed grated zucchini)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Grease Brava loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. (Optional): Peel a couple of long strands of zucchini (top to bottom of zucchini). These should total about 1/4 cup. Reserve.
