This recipe takes zucchini bread from good to great! I've gotten many compliments on this bread. It's great for gifts, parties or just slice up a loaf and watch it disappear! I like to use part coconut oil for extra flavor and nice texture. Great for freezing for later use...

So moist, SO Blue Ribbon! We added the optional coconut and would highly recommend it. Including dried cranberries in the recipe adds a pop of flavor to the zucchini bread. This bread is so moist when you cut into it, it may break apart a bit. Make sure to grab every single crumb. It's that good. Enjoy!
