Parents Blueberry Zucchini Bread


With two young boys in my house, I am always struggling with getting enough fruits and vegetables in their diets. Given the amount of sweet snacks consumed by my whole family, I try to find ways to make them healthier. I have tried vegetable breads in the past and my children weren't enthusiastic about the concept, but love when I make fruit bread. Therefore, I was intrigued when I saw a recipe for blueberry zucchini bread in the May issue of Parents magazine.

This is a relatively simple bread, with whole wheat flour added to increase its health benefits. The prep time is minimal, about ten minutes total. I was unable to find whole wheat pastry flour, so I substituted regular whole wheat flour. The bread was a little denser with the change, but the taste remained the same. I made one large loaf, instead of the mini loaves suggested in the recipe and the baking time took about 5 minutes longer than the suggested cooking time of one hour.

My two boys enjoyed this recipe. It's a nice way to combine the sweetness of blueberry bread with the health benefits of zucchini and whole wheat flour. The bread is a little denser than regular zucchini or fruit bread, but with butter added on top it's delicious. This recipe is a great way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my kids diet and I will definitely make it again.
