This bread is great for you! There is just a little sugar and no oil or butter. Not only that, it tastes great too. It is perfect if you are watching your weight, or for feeding toddlers and kids. You can use fresh or frozen zucchini. You can add in 1 cup dried fruit if you want too. Raisins are wonderful in it.

This bread was way too wet. In my efforts to bake it from a goo to a bread-like solid, I just wound up burning the tops and sides. Congrats to those who got it to work!

This bread has the spongy, chewy texture one often finds with baked goods that use apple sauce instead of butter or oil. I'd try using half oil and half apple sauce if I were going to make this again.

Perfect recipe! No need to change a thing. But I like to tinker, soooo...when I made them today, I added 1/2 cup walnuts and 3 bananas that were turning mushy. Lovely, lovely. Thanks for sharing!
