Is anyone else craving zucchini bread like crazy right now!? We LOVE making fresh zucchini bread to have around the house, as an on-the-go snack and to bring to summer celebrations. Zucchini is a versatile veggie that’s perfect in many of your Tone It Up Nutrition Plan recipes! We like it dipped in hummus, but it’s also perfect in salads, scrambles or stir fry dishes. It’s even delicious grilled on the BBQ! But did you know it also works seamlessly in baked goods, because it’s so moist and flavorful!
Grated zucchini adds moisture without adding fat to muffins, breads and breakfast cakes! Today we’re sharing a brand new recipe that’s so delicious and seemingly decadent, you won’t believe there’s a full cup of greens in it!
