I am obsessed with this bread! The pop of dried cranberries and slash of coconut give this bread an amazing flair. It is moist, loaded with chopped nuts, crushed pineapple that goes well with zucchini. I love how I can sneak some veggies or fruit into this. As a mom, I always prefer healthy aside from quick and easy. This Pineapple Cranberry Zucchini Bread is perfect! I can trick my picky eaters to eat healthily and it is super delicious they have nothing to complain about. And it is an easy bread recipe everyone can make it!
