Zucchini Coconut Bread

Welcome Frugally Sustainable readers!  I am honored to be featured this week because so many of you clicked on my recent post 12 Simple and Frugal Ways to be Green.  I hope you are enjoying what you have found here at Our Heavenly Homestead.  We’re glad you’re here!

This week I’d like to share a new-to-me recipe that I am so excited about.  If you have an abundance of frozen shredded zucchini from this past summer you may love it too.  Because I am also trying to make my way through a large tub of shredded coconut I stumbled upon this year, I am especially hooked on this recipe.  It makes 2 loaves of an amazing breakfast/snack bread.  Enjoy!

Zucchini Coconut Bread


3 cups all-purpose flour(I’m experimenting with varying amount of whole wheat flour mixed in)

2 cups white sugar(I use turbinado and I’m experimenting with substituting honey here)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup vegetable oil(I go with coconut oil instead)

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup shredded coconut or 1 cup shredded flaked coconut

2 cups raw unpeeled grated zucchini

1/2 cup walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F.
  2. Grease 2 loaf pans.
  3. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl.
  4. Mixture will be very thick.
  5. Pour equal amounts of batter into 2 loaf pans.
  6. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes or until done.
  7. Serve warm with butter and try to stop at one piece, I dare you.

The original recipe credit goes to one of my favorite recipe sites  I tend to always change up a few ingredients to make recipes a little more nutritious.
