DSC_0336Like I said in a previous post I have a ton of zucchini just growing all over the place in my garden. I have been trying new ways to use this yummy vegetable and one of those ways was zucchini bread. But I didn’t want to make the usually kind that is full of white sugar and basically is more like a cake than a bread. So I looked for a healthier version and came across this recipe and tried it out. It tasted very similar to the original and I thought maybe even better. Woot Woot! So if you guys were thinking about making this popular summer bread give this recipe a try and save on all the added sugar and white flour.
