    I followed everyone's advice regarding splenda and applesauce, and I also used egg substitute. This recipe wasn't quite as moist as the zucchini bread my Mom used to make, but it's SO much healthier! I redid the nutrition information based upon the changes, and 10 servings is just over 100 calories! - 7/14/09

    I just baked this last night, and it took an extra 20 min to cook- but came out perfect! Very sweet & very moist bread- great served with a little dollop of whipped cream as dessert. - 7/24/08

    I substituted the oil with organic applesauce, the egg with 1tbsp ground flaxseed/3tbsp water, used 1/3x 2 cups (sorry unsure on math) of blue agave sweetner in place of the sugar and whole wheat unbleached flour. It turned out very moist and delicious if a bit dense. - 8/3/08

    I made this for breakfast to use up some on the zucchini out of our garden. I substituted Splenda and applesauce for the oil. VERY GOOD! I'll add raisins next time. Plan on making a few loaves to freeze. - 7/21/08

    This is good! I have another recipe for zucchini bread that I've used for years, but this one is much healthier. I used 2 egg whites in place of the whole egg and it worked out well. Since I love nuts I chopped a few pecans and spread them across the loaf before baking. - 7/17/08

    I have made this recipe a few times and it always turns out really well. I normally cut the sugar in half and I use a vegan powdered egg replacer. I have also successfully substituted half a cup of the all purpose flour with whole wheat. - 5/21/12

    Great recipe. I think next time I will try using apple sauce as a substitution for the oil to bring the calories down a little. Also, it's good as is but I like putting a skim of light or fat free cream cheese on my slice.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe :) - 7/25/08

    I just made these with a few subs. 1/4 cup greek yogurt for the oil and half sugar/half splenda. Allspice instead of nutmeg and cut the baking soda in half because I live at 4700 feet. Made into 12 muffins they took about 20 minutes and had a low 101 cal/muffin. Delightful! - 9/10/12

    Moist & flavorful. Switched out applesauce for oil, and reduced sugar to 3/4 cup (learning that most recipes don't need so much sugar). Used a combo of unbleached & white Whole Wheat flour. Added 1 teaspoon of ground flax seed and 1/2 cup of ground hazelnuts, plus 2 T water so dough wasn't dry. - 8/21/12
