BAKERY ZUCCHINI BREAD

This is a take 2 for me, as I had created this bread years ago for a cookbook. Years later, and after many baking sessions, I cut out almost all of the sugar by adding mashed bananas and some nonfat Greek yogurt for some protein and moisture. Let’s just say the taste and consistency are some of my favorite recipe updates. 😋This could be part of your breakfast with some nut butter on top and fruit on the side or as your grain for lunch or dinner.
