Homemade Autumn Bread Recipe

I have been back in the kitchen full force lately…cranking out recipe after recipe after recipe. Which is fantastic for my creativity, but bad for my diet! I feel like there are just too many things I wait until fall to make…which was VERY poor timing when I decided to commit myself to dropping a few pounds.

You see, the summer got me like whoa…I ate, drank and relaxed(ish) with abandon. Another burger? YES PLEASE! Ice cream for the 3rd night in row? WHY NOT? A Frozen Margarita? YOLO!

Unfortunately, my metabolism isn’t fully loving all the YOLO-ing I did over the last few months. So here we are, knee deep in PSL season with me trying to be more “moderate”. BLAH.

Anyhow, it wouldn’t be October if I didn’t make my Autumn Bread recipe. This is a recipe similar to one my mom used to make…it’s like zucchini bread, carrot cake and banana bread all in one soft, cinnamon-y loaf.

And turns out there is no amount of self control that can keep this out of my face.

How to Make The Best Homemade Bread

I like to add walnuts to my bread. It’s how my mom used to make it, so I prefer it that way. You can certainly leave them out, if you are anti-nut.

All you need is a bowl and a spoon…no mixer required!

Autumn Bread Batter

This recipe makes enough for 2 loaves…so divide the batter equally. And I know some of you will ask…yes, you can half the recipe and make one loaf!

Bake it until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean…

And if you have any self control, wait for it to cool before slicing.

Or not.

And then maybe add a little butter. Only if you’re not trying to lose weight 🙂

  1. Hey! This looks delicious! Could I substitute the whole meal flour for another cup of all purpose flour? Also do you know if it freezes well? Thanks so much x

    1. After testing this recipe I think the ratio of whole wheat flour to all purpose is the best combo. You certainly can alter it and add more whole wheat flour, but you might get a slightly drier bread. Let mw know if you try it!

  2. Can these be made into muffins? If so, is it same oven temperature and start checking them at 15 minutes?

  3. My 7 year old granddaughter loves this so much. Honestly it’s a hit with everyone and an awesome way to use up zucchini. Made 3 batches today and plan to freeze some for Christmas.

  4. This bread is delicious! Made as written. It’s my new favorite. Husband gave it a thumbs up. Thanks so much for sharing.
