Savory Zucchini Bread Recipe

Everyone knows you can use sweet fruits like Bananas to make a delicious baked treat – but why not sneak in some more vegetables into your diet? Zucchini bread is nothing new, but I wanted to use a healthy Zucchini bread recipe from my favorite food blog, Skinnytaste, and give it a twist to make it savory!

This was great to keep around for snacking, or as a side to a meal. I recommend slicing off a piece and toasting it with butter over a cast iron pan… YUM! 

Check out my video on YouTube making it at home. 

Savory Zucchini Bread Recipe:


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1-1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional) 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini, not packed
  • Diced Green Onion (Garnish) 


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add chopped walnuts and gently mix to combine.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix egg, vanilla, melted butter, apple sauce, cheddar cheese and zucchini. 
  5. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  6.  Pour batter into the prepared 9×5-inch loaf pan. Bake 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and top with Diced Green Onion. 
  8. Let it cool before slicing.
