We have so much zucchini coming out of our garden right now that I have started baking zucchini bread to freeze for when our baby comes (today is my due date!). I found this amazing recipe for vegan zucchini bread from Joy the Baker, and it’s so moist you’d never know it was dairy free. Joy’s version is “almost vegan”- she makes hers with buttermilk, but I have substituted Almond Breeze Almond Milk and it works beautifully!

This isn’t a super sweet bread, so to make it feel more like a dessert I made a simple almond glaze of almond milk, vanilla and powdered sugar (you could add almond extract to make it taste more nutty).
Happy Baking!

VEGAN ZUCCHINI ALMOND BREAD

adapted from Joy the Baker’s Almost Vegan Zucchini Bread

makes one 8×4 or 9×5-inch loaf

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

1/2 cup  Almond Breeze Almond Milk

1 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 cups shredded zucchini 

3/4 cup thinly sliced almonds plus a bit more for the top of each loaf

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour an 8×4-inch or 9×5-inch loaf pan.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together Almond Milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and sugars.  Shred the zucchini using a grater and squeeze it over a strainer to release some of the liquid. Whisk thoroughly, then add the shredded zucchini and almonds.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold together with a spatula.  Make sure all of the flour is thoroughly incorporated into the batter.  Spoon batter into prepared pan, sprinkle the top with sliced almonds and place in the oven.  Bake for about 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

Allow to cool in pan for 20 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Bread will last, well wrapped at room temperature, for up to 5 days.

Optional: Drizzle warm slices with Almond Glaze before serving. For the glaze, simply stir in a bowl: 1/2 c powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon Almond Breeze Almond Milk, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract.

This post was done in partnership with Almond Breeze but opinions are completely my own. For this recipe I used the unsweetened original flavor Almond Breeze Almond Milk.

"I think that after Twilight and Snow White, that where huge films, I didn’t want to run to the next blockbuster. People who have known two huge successes think that it’s their thing now: Make successful blockbusters and surf on that wave. I came down from this huge wave and I told myself that I would shelter myself a little bit. That I would come back later. It was a good thing in the end. I needed time for myself. To come back to my own life. To stay home, surrounded by my own mess, to play the guitar and write." ― Kristen Stewart for Vanity Fair France

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

I think I’ve found my new ideal pet.
