I sub applesauce and make this with a variety of whole grain flours (spelt, ground quinoa, whole wheat, whatever's around) and it comes out awesome! I have problem not eating the whole pan for breakfast hehe


I made these today but with whole wheat flour and I added 6 tablespoons of dark dutch cocoa. My roommate and I liked this recipe that we ate the whole loaf in under half an hour. This recipe is very moist and tasty - next time I make it I'll be cutting back the sugar because they were plenty tasty and I think the recipe will be able to stand up to it.


This recipe is very easy, and so very delicious!
I made six muffins and they were gone so fast.
Making more today.  :D Yaay!


This bread is absolutely out of this world! It is so delicious, fabulously aromatic, and moist.  Everyone who has tried it loves it. I recommend substituting applesauce for oil and adding extra zucchini.


This. Is. Amazing. 'Nuff said.

But seriously, this really was amazing. I made a loaf using all whole wheat flour, about a 1/3 cup extra zucchini, and around 1/4 tsp of nutmeg (since my boyfriend and I aren't really nutmeg fans), everything else was kept the same. After about 30 minutes of baking, the wonderful banana-y cinnamon smell permeated through my whole house! The only thing I'll change next time is the amount of sugar.


OMG! This was so good!! I'm only thirteen and its a little hard to buy fancy egg replacer and flax seed bacause i feel bad since they are expensive.  But this stuff was mostly already in my house!!  Eh! It was so good, it needed more cook time because of my alterations though:
- About a 1/4 cup of honey instead of sugar
- a little less than 1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour(all i had left)
- 2 mashed bananas
- a little over a cup of zucchini
- at about 10 minutes til it was finished, i chopped some walnut and tossed some honey and a little oatmeal in a bowl, mixed and put it on top, and oh boy it was YUM!!!  Thank you for this easy delicious and moist recipe that withstands tweaking!!  ;D


this was a nice recipe & made my kitchen smell amazing! i was a little short on the zucchini, so i added an extra banana. also subbed in applesauce for the oil, and skimped majorly on the sugar. loved the nutmeg in this! next time i will try in muffin form. :)


Wow! They turned out great and were delicious! I forgot to add, I used probably 2-3 Tablespoons of ground flax seed as well, and I only ended up baking them for about 20 minutes. Perfect!


This recipe made 12 muffins for me. I substituted 1/2 c of applesauce for the oil and used 1/2 c whole wheat flour, 1 c unbleached white all purpose flour. They're in the oven right now... I'll let you know how they turn out!
