I created this healthy vegan zucchini walnut loaf a while back. But I sure can’t forget how delicious it is. I’ve been wanting to create a zucchini loaf (bread) recipe for the longest.

To describe this zucchini loaf a bit more, it’s so moist and delicious. And it won’t take you long to make it at all.

Healthy and Vegan

As I mentioned earlier, I wanted to create a zucchini loaf but I wanted it to be vegan and also healthy. I don’t just eat non-dairy foods. However, ever since I made a vegan recipe for the first time, I haven’t turned back.

Since being on Instagram, I’ve seen so many cuisines and foods. I’ve learned of healthy ways to prepare food such as the Keto diet and Paleo diets. In addition, there are a vast amount of vegan accounts on there.

Vegan Eating

I wanted to know what all the hype about being vegan was about. Nevertheless, I decided to make a vegan recipe one day. To my utter surprise, the recipe far exceeded my expectations. I think the recipe was a simple vegan cake recipe, if I can recall..

Ever since then, most of the baking recipes I’ve tried out have been vegan. It’s just amazing how you don’t have to use eggs or dairy milk to produce the perfect cake, muffins, etc. You can make a vegan cake that’s just as delicious as a non-vegan one. Check out this easy vegan mug cake recipe.
