Walnut-Zucchini Bread

    You shouldn't rate a recipe you've never tried, especially if you haven't read the nutritional information correctly! It states that it serves 8 people from two loaf pans - that means that a serving is 1/4 of a bread loaf - or 2 one-plus inches slices! Hardly a normal serving of nut bread! Next thing is to consider that the fat comes from oil and walnuts - way better than butter, but you can always reduce the oil by a third and replace it with apple sauce. Finally, the carbs are from sugar - way more sugar in this recipe than I am comfortable with, so I cut it in half and it was plenty sweet for me. It baked up beautifully in about 45 minutes and was a great way to use up old shredded zucchini from my freezer and a few fresh ones from this year's garden.

    I was given a huge basket of zucchini a few weeks ago and have made about 8 loaves of this yummy bread. It's so easy to make and great for breakfast and for dessert. I made it a couple of times without the walnuts, and it's still great. Great for freezing, too.
