Low Fat Zucchini Bread

This fast and easy zucchini bread knocks it out of the park for flavor and healthy benefits!  This is adapted from a recipe on Food.com, but I’ve changed out the oil and sugar to make it even healthier.  To switch it up even more, try grated beets in place of 1/2 the zucchini and add a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg.
