Recipe for Zucchini Bread (with Oat Flour)

IMG_5397Summer is the perfect time for zucchini bread!

This recipe is made with oatmeal flour replacing half of the all-purpose flour. I like it because it still has a light taste (not heavy like whole wheat flour). Yet oatmeal flour is very healthy! In the recipe below you’ll see that the walnuts and chocolate chips are optional. I included the walnuts in both loaves. I added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to only one of the loaves. It’s up to you.

Here’s the recipe, it’s easy to make!
