What to do w/ all the zucchini from the garden?? Make zucchini bread!!
I tried making healthier choices in this recipe. Whole wheat, less sugar and organic as much as possible.
Instead of sugar in this recipe you could use part honey or Stevia as a sweetener. Stevia is an herb that does not effect your blood sugar and has 0 calories. Just follow the instructions on the package for substituting.
