UPDATE: MY PARENTS REALLY ENJOYED THIS - EVEN MY CONFIRMED, "HEALTHY STUFF = NO GOOD" DAD! :) Mmmm! Good bread, Tahoegirl (and I'm not really a fan of sweet / quick breads in general...). :) I've been wanting to bake something lately, but haven't had enough time to. This weekend, I did. I like to bake for others mostly, so when I saw that this recipe yielded two loaves, I was sold. The fact that this is a healthy recipe was the final deal "maker" for me. My dad is on a restricted (heart healthy) diet. He refuses to eat whole wheat / grains (doesn't like them), but incorporating them into his diet is very important. Since I have two loaves of bread, I'm going to deliver one to my parents. The good news is that 99% of the time they enjoy what I share with them. If I can "trick" my dad into eating this and THEN tell him that it's healthy, maybe he'll be more open to expanding his diet lol! Healthy foods don't have to taste bland - and this certainly is proof of that. One note: I had to bake my two loaves (I purchased (2) 8 x 2 in. disposable loaf pans because I only have one stoneware loaf pan at home) for nearly 70 minutes. At the 45 minute mark, both were gooey (i.e. "raw") when a knife was inserted into the center of each one. Another thing to note: I found that 2 smallish-sized zucchini's precisely yielded 2 1/2 cups shredded with just a teeny bit leftover. Thanks so much for sharing your grandma's recipe, Tahoegirl! I'm sure my parents will thank you too. :-)
