Easy Carrot Zucchini Bread

Mike and I leave for Mexico in a month in a half for our 7 Year Anniversary. I am so excited!  We are actually going back to the same place we went for our Honeymoon, it was an all-inclusive and absolutely amazing!  To get our bodies “beach ready” both Mike and I have committed to doing crazy workout videos from now till our vacation.  I am doing the Brazilian Buff Lift video {come on ladies, who doesn’t want a good looking butt!} and Mike is doing Insanity.  All I have to say is … HOLY COW are my thighs and butt sore!!! My 20 something year old body is walking like a grandma, it’s ridiculous.  Have any of you done one of these workouts yet?

Along with working out, obviously you need to eat right or the workouts are for naught. With all the Zucchini Recipes I have seen on Pinterest lately and from other bloggers I was starting to feel left out.  In order to fit in with the “cool crowd” I decided to make this easy Carrot Zucchini Bread.  There is nothing better than a good zucchini bread, it is definitely one of my favorites even oven banana bread.  Ok, maybe there is one thing better… Carrot Zucchini Bread!  It’s like Carrot Cake and Zucchini Bread combine to form one superhero bread… but healthier!  It’s awesome! 🙂

How to Make Carrot Zucchini Bread

To get started, preheat oven to 350º.  In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Set aside.

    I’m not sure what went wrong. I follow the measurement and instruction carefully and I even drained off excess water from my shredded zucchini, but the whole loaf doesn’t bake through despite me baking it for 80 mins. I have to chuck the whole loaf away. :'(

    1. Krista

      Ohhh I’m so sorry Jessica. I’m not sure what went wrong. I’ve made this multiple times. I would try maybe less zucchini next time and see if that works.

    This Bread is beautiful, and thank you for the small amount of sugar. It has a quarter of the amount of a similar recipe, yet tastes amazing.

    1. Krista

      Hurray! So glad you liked it Katrina and you’re welcome on the reduced sugar. I almost always cut down the sugar because honestly most times it is way to sweet!
