Recipe: 100% Whole Wheat Coconut Zucchini Bread Made with Coconut Oil and Unsweetened Coconut

100% Whole Wheat Coconut Zucchini Bread (1) - FarmgirlFare.com
A moist and flavorful zucchini bread that's packed with wholesome ingredients (recipe here).

Got kids heading back to school? This 100% Whole Wheat Coconut Zucchini Bread just might be the perfect after-school snack.

Made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil (which is incredibly good for you), unsweetened coconut, less sugar than many zucchini bread recipes, and of course, zucchini, it's a healthy indulgence that still tastes like a treat. But you don't have to mention any of that when you serve it.

If you've never had natural, unsweetened shredded coconut, you're in for a pleasant surprise. The coconut flavor really comes through, and unlike the highly processed sweetened stuff, it doesn't contain preservatives like propylene glycol and sodium metabisulfite. Unsweetened coconut keeps best refrigerated or frozen (I buy four bags at a time and store them in the freezer).

This hearty zucchini bread also makes a great breakfast on the run or mid-morning pick me up. I love it sliced and toasted with a glass of really cold milk. Enjoy!
