I made zucchini bread with it, and you can't even tell its made with whole wheat flour. Not spongey like some low calorie breads, and very chocolately! - 7/24/10

I am so glad you like it! I am making a batch today, as I am working on losing my baby weight for the 5th time! (last baby for sure!)
These were pretty good but - I only put 1/2 cup of sugar (+ 2 tbs)....and it really did need that extra sweetness. Fortunately I put milk chocolate chips on top so that did help. They are a nice texture. Next time, I'm adding coconut milk and topping them with coconut and chips. Should help. - 8/24/11
I thought these were really good. I don't know if it's because there is no oil, but when using cupcake papers the muffin stuck to the papers and I lost a lot of the muffin trying to separate them. I guess that just means you eat less :) I made both muffins and a loaf, so I liked the loaf better - 7/15/12
Excellent! I added 3/4 cup of sunflower seeds which is 1 tablespoon per muffin. It does add fat, but it is healthy fat. I also mixed the choco chips into the muffin batter. I brought them to work and got rave reviews. I peeled & seeded the zucchini before fine shredding them. - 9/13/13
