You thought putting chocolate chips in your zucchini bread was tasty? Adding cinnamon chips to your zucchini bread will change your life, and you’ll never want to go back.

Several years ago, we visited a Great Harvest® bakery where we tried their cinnamon burst bread. We loved the cinnamon chips and the bursts of sweet cinnamon they created throughout the bread. It was so much better than simply adding a cinnamon swirl and just packed that sweet cinnamon punch that we didn’t know we needed.

When we got back to the office, we called a food broker, “Find us those chips!” Several months later he did and we’ve been using them in bread, muffins, and cookies since.

Recipe by Kara Orgill

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups grated zucchini squash
  • 1 1/2 cups cinnamon chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Stir the flour to break up the packed bits, making it light and fluffy. Spoon the lightened flour into a measuring cup to get 3 cups.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together. Set aside.
  4. In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Fold in the sour cream, oil, and zucchini.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the cinnamon chips. Do not continue stirring.
  6. Pour the batter into two well-greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pans. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes or until tested done with a toothpick or skewer inserted into the middles. Cool for ten minutes on a rack before removing the loaves from the pan.
