Blueberry Zucchini Bread


So I found the solution to my batter eating obsession…make desserts with Zucchini in them. I didn’t even lick any of the batter that got on my fingers. Let’s be honest…the little zucchini pieces grossed me out…until I tasted this WONDERFUL bread! I have been wanting to try a zucchini bread recipe for a long time….I bought some on sale yesterday and decided to go with this blueberry bread recipe. I made them in my mini loaf pan (which I adore), individually wrapped them, and stuck most of the loaves in the freezer. They are the perfect size for Brooke and I to share in the morning. This is probably the only way I can get her to eat a vegetable right now.
