I tweaked this recipe and it was fab! 1 cup of oil seemed so excessive! What a load of calories! I replaced with 1 cup apple sauce. Super moist! I also used 2 cups whole wheat flour. Instead of the brown sugar, I used healthier sweeteners. Oh so good! A great way to sneak in zucchini for the kids! Read More

This turned out okay..I've never had zucchini bread before. I split the batch between a loaf and 6 miffins. I substituted applesauce for the oil and egg whites for the eggs. I also used all whole wheat flour used flaxsed instead of wheat germ cut the sugar in half and used walnuts. I may use a little more brown sugar next time...but I like my muffins not too sweet.

I used ALL whole wheat flour; oats instead of wheat germ; extra raisins (plumped); used 1/2 cup applesauce (sweetened with splenda) and 1/2 cup of oil instead of the whole cup of oil; then decreased the brown sugar by 1/4 cup. Very moist. Everyone loved it. Read More

I was looking for a healthy zucchini bread (something with whole wheat flour) so I tried this. I used 2/3 cup of applesauce and only 1/3 cup oil to cut down the calories and it turned out perfect. Healthiest and best zucchini bread ever. Next time I might try with only 1 cup sugar as it was quite sweet. Read More

Great recipe. The bread was moist had great color and flavor. I substituted 1 cup of applesauce for the oil used only whole wheat flour 1 cup of brown sugar and added 1/4 cup of flax seeds. I baked the bread last night and served it this morning. It was sweet but not too sweet with a nice nutty flavor. I'll be making this regularly from now on. Read More

Delicious! I substituted flaxseed meal for half of the oil (1.5 cups flaxseed meal for 1/2 cup oil) to add in some omega 3s. A definite hit with the family and very easy to whip up. Read More

This was yummy! I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce instead of 1 cup oil and substituted flax seeds for the wheat germ. I made mini-muffins instead of a loaf baked at 340 degrees for 10 minutes...very moist and delicious! Read More

I really liked this recipe. It was lighter and less sweet than other zuccini breads I've had and just had lots of texture with the raisins and the nuts. I used quick cooking oats instead of the germ and it still came out really well =) Read More

I love this recipes and have made it many many times. I make mini-muffins from this recipes and feed them to my anti-veggie 3 year old. He loves them and thinks they are a real treat without knowing that he is downing veggies! I usually add extra zucchini cut back on the sugar a bit and sometimes substitute some applesauce for some of the oil. Still come out great! Read More

Tasty & healthy my kids love it what more could you want? To make it even tastier & healthier I substitute unsweetened applesauce for half of the oil and when I make muffins out of the batter I substitute fresh blueberries for the raisins & walnuts. Delish! Read More
