October 16, 2014 – Amanda here from I Am Baker! I have been searching for ways to use up our abundance of zucchini and I think I found the perfect solution! This delicious quick bread utilizes zucchini, pears and whole wheat, meaning that not only is it a delicious snack, but a healthy one too!
In addition to the healthy and wholesome ingredients that already make up this tasty bread, you can also add nuts! My husband loves a good walnut or pecan in bread while I prefer it without. I love that we have the option to make it both ways, thus ensuring that everyone is happy!
The best part of this bread was the fact that I was able to get all the ingredients at my local ALDI! For a fraction of the cost, I can still feel good about feeding my family deliciously healthy homemade meals.
