The Best Ever Zucchini Blender Bread

Blender Zucchini Bread

This really IS THE Best Zucchini Bread Ever, and using a blender makes it a breeze to make.

 I have a new high powered blender, my precious Vitamix, and any chance I get to use it makes me a happy lady.  Using a blender makes this recipe a breeze to make.

 It is also a simple recipe, no grating zucchini, no half teaspoons or tablespoons, and it turns out great every time.  I’ve made it twice in the past week, which made my family very, very happy.

oil and zucchini in a blender

Add one cup oil to the blender.  I use coconut oil.  Add enough chopped zucchini to blend to 3 cups.


oil and zucchini all blended up in a blender

Blend until your mixture is green and the zucchini peel is chopped up into little bits.


a teaspoon of baking soda added to zucchini bread batter

Add salt, soda and baking powder.

Just one teaspoon of each.


baking soda, salt & baking powder canisters. Egg added to blender

Add egg. Blend.


cinnamon & vanilla

Add cinnamon & vanilla — a tablespoon each.


cinnamon and vanilla added to the blender

Blend.  The cinnamon will make it a nice brown speckled color.

a measuring cup of flour

Add 3 1/2 cups of flour to a bowl. I use whole wheat pastry flour.  Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  Yeah…that’s a lot of sugar, but the original recipe called for 2 cups, so could be worse. The fiber in the whole wheat flour and in the zucchini will help keep blood sugar from spiking from all that sugar!


flour and sugar combined in a bowl

Use a whisk and blend flour & sugar.

If you have a powerful, large blender, add the flour mixture right into the blender, about a cup at a time.  If you do not have a high-speed blender, then pour mixture into the flour/sugar mixture bowl and mix.


pouring zucchini bread batter into a bread pan

Pour into greased pan.  Can use a bundt cake pan, 2 bread pans, 4 mini pans +1 regular size pan, or pour into muffin cups and make zucchini muffins.  You choose!

I did 4 mini’s and one regular size loaf pans.

This recipe smells SO good, is SO moist, and makes everyone happy.  My kids and their friends loved it as an after-school snack.

Recipe Notes

The second time I made it I didn't have quite enough zucchini to make it to 3 cups, so I threw a few peeled carrots into the blender, enough to make it to the 3 cup line. It was really good, and added even more sweetness!
