The end of summer is approaching and it’s the height of the summer harvest. The zucchini bushes are bountiful and this delicious vegetable needs to be eaten or shared.

There’s nothing like fresh zucchini from the garden. This summer my family has been enjoying zoodles, Parmesan zucchini stacks and grilled zucchini sprinkled with pinenuts and feta.

Use fresh blueberries since they’re readily available during the summer months or fold them carefully into your batter if using frozen.

Shredded zucchini keeps this loaf moist and delicious. It’s also a fantastic way to sneak some vegetables into your children or spouse if they are picky eaters.

  • My neighbors have been gifting me with piles of zucchini and, as someone surrounded by family which won’t eat zucchini, zucchini bread is the way to go here! Especially with the blueberries in the mix. I also like the muffin idea. Bake them up and we have breakfast on the go.

    • You have some wonderful neighbors. Lucky you. I would be gobbling up that Zucchini anyway I could get it. It’s so much better from the garden.

  • I LOVE the idea of combining the blueberries and zucchini. It sounds like a flavor match made in heaven.

  • I love the little bits of green from the zucchini against the blueberries. It’s such a pretty loaf and I bet it is delicious 😀

    • Thanks Tammy. I love the green bits. Alternatively you could peel the zucchini if you wanted a cleaner look to your bread.

  • OH wow.. I have made zucchini bread with cranberry but not with blueberry. I do love the idea.. sounds so much more delish and pretty too! I’m going to try this next time. Pinning for later.

  • This looks really yummy and moist! I’ve never dared to use zucchini in my breads yet but this has totally convinced me to give it a try! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Pairing zucchini with blueberries sounds very delicious! I love the how moist bakes turn out when adding zucchini.
