This Blueberry Buttermilk Zucchini Bread screams “Best of Summer” with the fresh blueberries that dot through this moist zucchini bread.
Lately, I have been feeling like I am running in a million directions all at once.
But the thing is, I am not getting anywhere. I am especially not getting out and doing any running. Well, I have never liked running, but I miss the energy I felt spinning.
I haven’t done any spinning since moving and I don’t feel great about it- physically and emotionally. Spinning was my outlet to getting all the crap in my head out of the way and pedal my ass off until I looked like I took a shower fully clothed. I loved how I felt when I was done. I was tired but more energized.
So I said ‘enough’s enough’ and I booked a class this weekend to check out a studio in Tampa. Hopefully, I’ll love it as much because I loved the classes I took at B/Spoke in Boston. Can’t wait for my class tomorrow!
Anyway, I have been hooked on blueberries ever since we went blueberry picking a few weeks ago. They are just so good plain or blended into a smoothie or baked into something extra delicious.
I wanted to do some baking with them so I turned to Pinterest to see what I could find. I was getting out of control pinning things since there are so many great options of pancakes, muffins, breads, and pies. In the end, I just turned to a favorite recipe of mine.
My Lemony Raspberry Zucchini Bread is one of the most popular recipes on my blog. It’s pinned a ton. Oh, it makes me so happy when I see it pop up in my feed from someone pinning it. Plus, it’s just so good.
Instead of using the raspberries in the original recipes, I used the fresh picked blueberries. Also, to change things up even more, I decided to skip the lemony glaze and the lemon in the bread.
The lemon in the other zucchini bead gave it some great tartness, but I wanted to just keep things a bit more mellow. I used buttermilk in the bread to keep that tart tang in the bread. I love buttermilk, it just gives recipes a bit more pop compared to using just milk. And that is how I came up with this awesome Blueberry Buttermilk Zucchini Bread.
The bread is great because it combines the tangy buttermilk, sweet blueberries, and refreshing zucchini. Plus, I just love the green speckles throughout it. And the bursted blueberries. OMG, the best!!
Summer is all about breads like this!

We planted way too much zucchini this year. I need to keep this recipe on hand, because it looks like the perfect way to use our zucchini up!
This looks absolutely delicious. I have two zucchini ready to go in the fridge.
What a great combo! Doesn’t even look like there’s zucchini in there! Wow!

When I heard Nicole was making zucchini/blueberry bread it did nit sound like a good combination to me but what do I know. I was really very good. The zucchini gave it the moisture and the blueberry the sweetness.

keeper recipe…especially for my veggie-hated kid 🙂
Was wondering if I could make muffins instead of the bread? Would the cooking time/temp be different?
I would keep the temp the same nut start checking them around 18 minutes. I’d expect them to go up to 22 minutes or so. Rotate in the oven after 10 minutes.
