    I made this over the weekend but cut back on the sugar (1/4 cup less each)and used 3/4 cup of vanilla Chobani in place of the oil. Sooooo good. Thank you for this. I’ve had several people ask where I got the recipe, so I sent them to you!

    Made this tonight and it was great! Used the oil/applesauce instead of butter since I think it makes a moister bread. Actually used more applesauce than oil. I increased it by 50% since I had extra zucchini and made 4 loaves and baked them for about 54 mins. Thanks for the recipe! I’m sure my friends and son’s teacher will thank you also!

    This recipe is amazing. I have made it multiple times now. I also make them as muffins for work. My coworkers go wild over them. I add chocolate chips sometimes too. The bread was a big hit at the church bake sale. ★★★★★

    Hello I gave your recipe a try today and I don’t know what I did wrong when I finish mixing everything the mixture was so hard to put it on the loaf pans I still did it they came out good but kind of crunchy in the top I followed your directions like u said and it didn’t come out looking nothing like the picture I used 1/2 apple sauce 1/2 cup oil?

    Made this recipe yesterday, used the 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup home made apple sauce and the 2 cups of zucchini versus the 1, which I noticed was a choice, it was super moist and delicious, gave one away as a gift and got great reviews on the gift one plus my family loved it….
