Make this fresh and delicious Zucchini Blueberry Bread recipe with your abundance of garden zucchinis this year. Freezer friendly recipe, bursting with flavor and color!


For the Bread:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • ⅔ cup milk (I used skim)
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 lemon, zested (save juice for glaze)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Glaze: (optional)

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 teaspoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, greased.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (except for blueberries) for bread, stirring to combine. Fold in blueberries.
  3. Pour into greased pan and bake for 60 minutes, until completely cooked. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in pan, remove from pan and cool completely.
  4. For glaze, whisk together powdered sugar with milk and juice from ½ lemon. Drizzle over bread. I enjoyed this bread cold out of the refrigerator! Enjoy!


  • Blueberries- You can use fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries for this recipe. Frozen blueberries will color your bread blue a bit, but won’t alter the taste.
  • Glaze- Add a yummy lemon glaze topping to this to make it extra sweet and delicious! If freezing the recipe, I usually freeze it without the glaze and then add that later.
  • Zucchini- It’s completely up to you if you want to peel your zucchini or not. It really doesn’t matter as far as the taste or texture goes. If you want to hide the fact that this bread has zucchini in it from your children, then peel it! If using frozen, thawed zucchini, squeeze out some of the excess moisture.
  • Serve Cold- I put my bread in the refrigerator and enjoy it cold for a refreshing treat.
