Louismill Recipes: Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread Recipe

If you are looking for a healthy quick bread recipe that includes organic grains, look no further! This delicious zucchini bread combines two of our stone milled organic products to make one amazing treat. Our Louismill Turkey Bran add both flavor and moisture, while our White Wheat Pastry Flour adds all of the nutrients and enzymes that are meant to be in the flours that we consume. The stone ground, whole wheat flour we use is what really sets this bread apart from a traditional zucchini bread. Not only does it perform better than store bought flour, but its also healthier for you to consume because it retains the nutritional content of fresh wheat grains. We prefer splurging a bit on the chocolate chips to go into our zucchini bread and we find that toasting the pecans can really bring out their flavor within this quick bread.
