Blueberry Zucchini Bread is a delicious, dressed up version of my favorite zucchini bread complete with a streusel topping. This blueberry zucchini bread is as good as any blueberry muffin you will find.
It’s that time of year. That time when your garden is overflowing with zucchini. This year I’ve been trying to stay on top of all the zucchini and not let them get too big. I made a couple of batches of my regular zucchini bread this week but I decided I need to make it a little more interesting.
I found that the addition of some blueberries and a streusel topping was the perfect way to dress up my regular zucchini bread.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it makes two loaves. One for you and one to share! In addition to my regular zucchini bread recipe, I also have a gluten free zucchini bread that is yummy too!
It really is, just like eating a blueberry muffin. If you peel your zucchini so you don’t have the green skin, no one will even know they are eating zucchini bread!
I add the streusel topping about 10 minutes into the baking time so it doesn’t get too brown. This recipe is also great with a cup of mini chocolate chips added in instead of the blueberries. Chocolate just makes everything better, doesn’t it?
Blueberry Zucchini Bread with Streusel
You can also make this in mini loaf pans if you want more loaves to giveaway. You can also try a few different variations – just plain old zucchini bread. Zucchini bread with blueberries and streusel topping and then zucchini bread with just streusel topping and no blueberries. Have to say though, my favorite was the one with blueberries and streusel topping!
So if you don’t have any zucchini in your garden ask a neighbor or just pick one up on your next trip to the grocery store like I had to because zucchini season is over in our garden.
