Easy Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Recipe

This easy pumpkin zucchini bread recipe is one of my favorites for any time of year!

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.

The result was this delicious zucchini AND pumpkin bread!

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 with a subtle cinnamon-pumpkin flavor. 

I also didn’t feel too bad sharing it with my little girl since it is packed with veggies, has reduced sugar, and has half the oil of regular zucchini bread.

If you like your pumpkin zucchini bread on the sweet side, I suggest adding another 1/4 cup of sugar. 

Also if you want to add extra zucchini, go for it! I just suggest cutting back on the pumpkin or oil slightly to account for the extra water. 

This recipe makes two small loaves of bread, so you can share one (or keep both for yourself). You could also bake this in one larger pan, but note that the baking time will need to be increased. 

It’s also loaded with pumpkin – one full 15-ounce can goes into the loaves. 

Pumpkin is a great source of vitamin A as well as several other vitamins. So go on and eat another slice. 😉

If you’ve got extra zucchini hanging around just grab your box grater and make some of this delicious bread.

Enjoy your easy pumpkin zucchini bread recipe!

It turned out perfect by the look and super moist & yummy to the taste (wish I could share the picture with you).. This is a keep and thank you for sharing..😊
