Zucchini Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping – Egg less Zucchini Bread

I have no idea why I have never baked zucchini bread before. It would be an understatement, if I said that this Zucchini Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping  was one of the moistest quick breads I have baked. It was just wonderful bread and it needs no words beyond this.
My oldest one has been asking me to make coffee cake for a while now as he loves the crumble topping in the coffee cake. Since this week is all about breads, I wanted to bake a quick bread for the category and that is when I thought why not make the Zucchini Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping.

I was initially thinking of making zucchini walnut bread, but then just the brown sugar crumble sounded boring, so I thought I would skip the walnut in the bread and use it the crumble topping. That is by far the best thing I have put in bread. The bread was super soft and the walnut crumble topping gave the bread the much needed texture.

I used Greek yogurt in the bread and that compensated for the eggs. This is one of the breads that disappeared within a day and that shows that everyone in the house just loved it.
