super simple blueberry zucchini bread recipe
As you'll begin to read my blog, you'll understand that I have the world’s biggest sweet tooth. Yes am very active and eat pretty healthy most of the time, but sweets have kindaaa (and probably will always) be my biggest weakness! It's really difficult to say no to desserts in this house.
I’ve loved baking since I first started teaching myself how to cook and eating healthier – particularly taking "fun" foods and swapping the ingredients for healthier foods. I've been doing this for about 8 years now and I am always trying a new recipe, or tweaking an old one, until I can find the perfect, but easy recipe. Well my friends, if you also like an easy baking recipe…look no further!
This recipe I’m sharing with you today was inspired by The Ambitious Kitchen. Most zucchini bread recipes always seem so complicated, so I decided to give a try at making one that is super simple and uses ingredients most people have. And honestly, this is hands down my favorite zucchini bread I have tried! The bread is so soft and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness.
So, here we are: the simple blueberry zucchini recipe!
