  • I used whole wheat flour - I thought it was a little strong in taste, but everyone else loved it. It adds some calories, but increases fiber. - 9/24/08

  • Truly decadent recipe. Took out the oil and subsituted with flaxseed, applesauce and fat free yogurt. Preferred it in Muffin form as it is a really rich bread. Re-calculated into my own cookbook using Splenda and other substiutions. - 9/18/08

  • Very good, I took one loaf to work one night and the other the next... everyone loved it! I might skip the choc chips next time as it was very chocolaty I think with just the cocoa. - 9/17/08

  • This was awesome! I used 1 cup of ww flour and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Love it! My husband who is not a zuchinni eater didn't know it was in there. 11 year old daughter can't get enough! - 9/8/08

  • I love this! I'll definitely make it again. I had enough zucchini to make 1.5x the recipe and it made 2 loaves and a dozen muffins. - 9/3/08

  • This was awesome. It was gone in one day. I gave a loaf away and now everyone wants the recipe. I am following Weight Watchers plan and it is only 2 points per slice. - 9/1/08

  • I was not impressed with the bread, gonna try muffins next time. I seem to be a better muffin baker than bread. I used Splenda and egg substitute, and oil and applesauce in my batch. Sometimes these things taste better the next day. I hope so!! - 8/31/08

  • My kids loved this. I doubled it, and it was almost too much for my KitchenAid. I used 3 C. whole wheat flour and 2 C. white and it still turned out great. We will make this again--soon! - 8/31/08

  • Pretty good - I subbed wheat pastry flour for 1.5c white flour & added a few Tbs. of flax & oat bran. While it is very moist, I was a bit disappointed in the taste - I thought it should be a bit sweeter. Then again, since I made it in a 9X13 pan, I was probably thinking "cake" when I ate it. - 8/30/08

  • I didn't give this a rating, because I was torn. The zuccini bread was delicious, and it was devoured! But the fact that the calorie count was wrong made me upset. Shouldn't there be a check for that? We are here to watch what we eat, & if the recipes aren't accurate, what's the point? - 8/30/08

  • I made this twice already. It was moist and deliscious. The first time I used allmost all wholewheat flour and almost no oil. I used applesauce. It was really deliscious. The second time I used mostly soy flour,some white flour and a little whole wheat. I wouldnt use that much soy flour again. - 8/29/08

  • Just wanted to let you know the ingredients used for nutrition calculations does NOT include the chocolate chips OR oil. The calories and fat will be higher than what is listed. Make sure to recalculate if you do use these two ingredients!!! - 8/29/08

  • Really good. I made muffins instead of bread and baked for 15-17 minutes. My two boys (5 and 7) and I love them. My husband thought they had an unusual taste, which is probably the hint of cinnamon you taste with the first bite. I added a few more chocolate chips. - 8/28/08
