Brown sugar makes all the difference, in my opinion! I love that the recipe includes oats, and I like the texture it gives. After reading reviews, I used 3/4 cup brown sugar along with the 6 tablespoons white, and still it wasn't too sweet. I also used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil, and it came out just devine, and no one would ever know there was so much less fat! Mine cooked about 70 minutes for one loaf, and I also made a batch using 3 mini loaf pans, which baked for 45.

I was happy to find a "one" loaf Zucchini Bread recipe since it's just me and DH. I added a 1/4 cup chopped pecans to mine. It cooked for 65 minutes as well. Since I am up at 5,000 feet I cut the oven temperature down to 325'F and cut back on the brown sugar. I used Xylitol instead of white sugar and it all worked out great. Loved that there's oats in here too. Thanks for this, I will no doubt make it again :)
