Our neighbor shared some zucchini from his family’s garden with us this week and I immediately wanted to make some zucchini bread. I had a can of pumpkin hanging around so I decided to use it in place of some of the large quantity of oil that my zucchini bread recipes usually calls for.  I love pumpkin recipes year-round and am a firm believer that you shouldn’t have to wait until fall to enjoy some pumpkin goodness!

The bread turned out really moist and delicious. I also didn’t feel too bad sharing it with my daughter since it is packed with veggies, has reduced sugar and has half the oil of regular zucchini bread. Enjoy!
