I made a couple loaves of this this morning since I had LOTS of zucchini and LOTS more on its way. I made a double batch and instead if 2 eggs I only used 1 with one flax seed replacement for the other. I did use nonfat Greek yogurt instead of drained regular, as suggested by other reviews I did add more yogurt because the batter did seem a bit dry. I had it all made and in the poven when I realized I totally forgot the oil.... probably why it seemed dry.... but it still turned out yummy. Just the right amount of sweet too!! I don't think I'll add the oil next time either! Thanks for a great low fat, and healthy zucchini bread recipe. Will definitely be making again!!

I agree that the batter was too thick and made the bread a bit dry, so would add more yogurt next time, or maybe some crushed pineapple or applesauce. Maybe the moistness depends on the zucchini. Mine was fresh and fairly dry. I made 2 mini loaves. Good flavor.

This has a nice flavor and texture. I like the fact that it isn't overly sweet. I did have to add some more yogurt to get it mixed, though, as the batter was too thick.
