– this leprechaun approved zucchini bread is a fun way to incorporate a natural green color and some extra vitamins to St Patrick’s Day festivities. Here are a few tips to make the perfect zucchini bread each time:

 – Do not overmix the batter

 – Do not mix the batter too fast

 – Resist the temptation to add more liquid – this will be a thick batter

 – Omit the spinach to make this zucchini bread year round

 – After taking the zucchini bread out of the oven, let it cool in the pan for just 5 minutes. You want to invert it onto a cooling rack asap

Do you have any tips to share? I’m always looking to up my zucchini bread game!


Wet ingredients  

   1/3 cup coconut oil

   ¼ cup almond milk (can sub water)

   ½ cup baby spinach

   1 tbs ground flaxseeds

   1 cup brown sugar

   2 tsp pure vanilla extract

   ½ tsp pure almond extract

Optional mix-ins – chocolate chips, chopped walnuts

Optional topping – hemp seeds, chocolate chips


1 Preheat oven to 350F and grease the loaf pan

2 In a high speed blender, blend the almond milk and spinach until completely smooth. I did not strain the liquid out but you may need to if you don’t use a high speed blender

3 Blot the zucchini with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Set aside

4 Mix together all dry ingredients and add in optional mix-ins now

5 In a separate bowl, mix spinach mixture with remainder wet ingredients except the zucchini. Whisk together until combined

6 Gently stir in zucchini to the wet ingredients

7 Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Do NOT overmix

8 Pour batter into the greased pan and bake for 45 min. Test doneness by inserting a toothpick into the loaf

9 Let cool in the pan for 5 min and then cool sideways on a cooling rack

10 Slice after the zucchini bread has cooled for 30+ min and enjoy it right away before the little goblins finish it all of
