Cranberry walnut zucchini bread is moist and light, made healthier using zucchini, almond flour, and no refined sugar. It is the perfect blend of fall flavors, spiced and subtly sweet, and is the perfect addition to your morning breakfast.
Fall called and it is telling you to make this bread!!
I am not joking. This cranberry walnut zucchini bread is sending some serious fall vibes. It’s got dried cranberries, pepitas (aka pumpkin seeds), walnuts, and some great fall spice from the nutmeg and cinnamon. And it is a lot healthier than most breads because it is made with almond flour (so it is gluten free!) and zucchini.
Why do I love baking with zucchini? It adds so much to baked goods. First of all, it is about 95% water. So it makes breads SUPER moist (yes I said moist). It also lightens the bread up. We don’t need to use as much flour so it reduces the overall calorie and net carb content. It adds extra fiber to the recipe, and zucchinis are known to be anti-inflammatory, have a high antioxidant content, and improve digestion.
If you are hesitant, please give it a try! I promise zucchini bread is kind of life changing. And once you decide you love it – try my other zucchini baked goods! I recommend my triple chocolate avocado zucchini bread, my chocolate zucchini brownies, and my healthy carrot cake made with sneaky zucchini (which is also a fall favorite)!
Let’s Make Some Cranberry Walnut Zucchini Bread!
I love this bread because it is so easy. I used to be really intimidated by breads but once I tried them I learned they really aen’t has hard as you think.
The most difficult part about this is probably grating the zucchini 😛 and notice here you do not have to dry it out! We actually want all that moisture that the veggie brings. So don’t worry about that.
I used almond flour, but if you want to sub that for something else I’d recommend gluten free all purpose, or whole wheat if you are not worried about gluten. You can see the brands I use and recommend in my Amazon store.
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a grater
- two mixing bowls
- a bread pan
- oil to grease your pan
Enjoy your bread making!Print
