Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread with Flaxseed & Pecans

Jump to Recipe

If you love zucchini bread as much as we do, you will love this recipe! This chocolate chip zucchini bread has a healthy and fun twist with the addition of milled flaxseed and pecans.

Not only do pecans offer dietary fiber and plant-based protein like other nuts and seeds, but they also offer B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and even calcium.

Our customers love our flaxseed for it’s incredibly fine mill and smooth texture. It is so soft and smooth they can add it to their favorite recipes without altering the taste or texture.

And when it comes to nutrition, adding Manitoba Milling Smooth Whole Milled Flaxseed to your zucchini bread (or any recipe!) may help to support good digestive health, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of cancer, and help to control blood sugar.
