    This was a great recipe! However I found it waaayyy to sweet. I will make this again however I’ll probably substitute it with a natural sweetener like Honey or maybe maple syrup

    PERFECT. Made in muffin tins according to another review & baked for 25 mins. Modifications: Used 1 c. Whole wheat flour, 2 c. All purpose. Added 2 tsp ground Flax. Mix-ins: 3/4 c. Walnuts, 3/4 c. Mini chocolate chips. Reduced sugar to 1 1/2 c. My 3 year old was iffy on adding zucchini, and went for seconds! *Edit* as these cooled, they kind of got dry. Likely because of the wheat flour. Not sure if Tupperware will help or if maybe the addition of oil or applesauce is needed.

    Turns out great! I substitute apples for currants and pecans for walnuts.

    I made muffins from this recipe. I used whole wheat flour and was initially concerned they would come out dry but baking at 25 minutes and using butter cooking spray, the muffins were nice and crisp on the outside, moist on the inside. Both my toddler and picky 8yr old gobbled them up. Definitely a new muffin in our rotation. **If you use wheat flour, try not to squeeze all of the water from the zucchini or they’ll be too dry.**

    Flavorful, dense bread. Made muffins and bread version and would make again

    I made muffins instead of a loaf- 20 min, golden brown around edges- moist and perfect! I used walnuts and baby chocolate chips, no currants.

    Didn't use the currants but did use the walnuts, which was still delicious. The loaves were fairly moist, but I have definitely had softer zucchini bread, so I was a tad bit disappointed. Still a good base recipe.

    My Husband , Mom and I loved it that's all that matters to me. The currants where different, I liked that and it's full of flavor. I don't bake that much so this impressed everyone.

    To reduce fat, I replaced 1/2 butter with applesauce and the other half with coconut oil. Used 1 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar. After prepping baking pans with Pam, I sprinkled them with cinnamon-sugar. Baked 70 minutes. House smelled heavenly and bread is divine!

    Was delicious. Tasted kind of buttery, might go a bit lighter on butter and sugar next time. ......!
