I do a lot of meal planning and scheduling out our meals. Since I work full-time, it helps me to plan to plan out meals ahead of time, especially for the days when I know there will be more going on.
Not only does it help me stay organized, but it also helps cut down on our grocery expenses and leftover food waste.
So, there were a couple recipes that I planned to make and a few that I needed to work on. They didn’t happen. Instead, I made this Cinnamon Chip Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread.
Even though I hate to go off plan, this time it was a good decision.
This Cinnamon Chip Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread is moist and tender without the greasy heaviness that so many zucchini breads suffer from. It isn’t super sweet but has just enough sweetness to make it tasty.
So, it’s great as a breakfast or snack! And if you’re looking for a sweeter zucchini recipe, check out my zucchini cake recipe.
