Lighter Zucchini Bread

Lighter Zucchini Bread

This week was rough. I don’t think Ive been this happy to see Friday in a loooong time. I really need my hubs home to help me with these kiddos..not that it will be a relaxing weekend. We’re getting the boys baptized this weekend so it will be filled with lots of cooking and lots of entertaining, especially for out of town guests. I’m so tired lately, I’m desperate for a vacation! Anyone want to give me one?! 😉

 Lighter Zucchini Bread

I made this lighter zucchini-bread a little while back and it was stupendous. I generally don’t like breads with veggies in it…but this one surprised me? Maybe the cinnamon flavor, because really, who doesn’t like things that include cinnamon? That’s what I thought.

Lighter Zucchini Bread

This bread was moist, flavorful, and absolutely delicious! It didn’t last long around here..we tend to eat these things as breakfast, dessert, and snacks. This particular zucchini bread is a tad but lighter than most. There is no butter, partially made with whole wheat flour, and only 1/2 cup of sugar. You don’t even notice the changes, its totally fabulous! Enjoy friends!
