Zucchini Walnut Bread


This zucchini walnut bread works great as a gifting idea. Whether it’s the holiday season or a “welcome to our neighborhood” gift, this zucchini walnut bread and the chocolate chip version perfectly fits the occasion.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup to top it


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C for 15 minutes. Line the loaf pan/pans with parchment paper and lightly grease it with non-stick cooking spray. I used 2 mini decorative paper loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together the ingredients listed under Part 2. Make sure that there are no brown sugar clumps. Use a whisk to dissolve everything thoroughly.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Now stir in the zucchini and 1/2 cup of walnuts.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s) and sprinkle the remaining walnuts on top.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Mine was done in about 38 minutes. Depending on the pan size you are using the baking time will vary.
  8. Remove the pan(s) from the oven and place it on a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing it.
