Whisk flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a bowl; mix into zucchini mixture until batter is just combined. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

I am a traditionalist when it comes to baking so I am always skeptical of "healthier alternatives" in recipes. This recipe absolutely impressed me! It was DELICIOUS!!! I followed the recipe as written except I used white flour instead of whole wheat flour. I made muffins/cupcakes instead of loaves. A single recipe made 12 muffins. Everyone raved about them all week! Read More

I pureed the zucchini so my 5 yo wouldn't fuss, and I didn't have agave so I substituted sugar. Huge hit. Read More

Great flavor! I used honey instead of agave and Einhorn flour in place of ww flour. They turned out perfect and my kids gobbled them up. Super moist and the lemon-zucchini combo is on point. Read More

Very moist and delicious! I made a lemon glaze (1 cup powdered sugar & juice of 1 lemon mix) poured over. Yummy!!! I did use 1 regular sized loaf pan; poured all batter in and it came out awesome. Cooked for about 50mins 350 degree. Also added less than 1/4 cup reg sugar (just in case) and it is really unnecessary. I won't do that next time. Def naturally sweet enough! Enjoy Read More

I baked these as muffins, following the recipe almost exactly, but substituting 1/4 cup more applesauce for the egg and adding about 3/4 tsp more lemon zest. They were very tasty, but I think the next time I would add even more lemon zest, since I really wanted the lemon flavor to pop.? It made 12 smallish muffins, and even my vegetable-refusing teen liked them! Read More

Very good. Didn't taste "healthy" like some of the healthier recipes can. I used 1/2 white flour and 1/2 wheat but otherwise followed recipe. I will make this again. Read More

This bread was very moist; I think the coconut oil and applesauce worked well. It didn't rise as nicely as other zucchini breads I make. The flavor the first day it was made was just okay. I had added about 1/4 c of sugar to it in addition to the agave nectar. However the next morning it tasted better so I'm going to give it 4 stars instead of just 3. I definitely think it needs at least 3/4 cup of sweetner. Read More

Fabulous recipe! Based on the other comments I added 1/4 sugar and a grated carrot. Glad I did! It s still not too sweet but just sweet enough. The lemon is a great addition! It adds a little citrus background that s really good. Thank you for sharing! Read More
