Made this recipe yesterday. I only had white whole wheat flour on hand, so used that. Replaced sunflower seeds with chopped pecans (personal preference). Cut sugar back to about 1 cup, mixed together white and brown sugar. Used cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, as these were the spices I had on hand. Cut the salt back to just about 1/8 t, the recipe amount called for seemed like much too much? Added some fresh lemon zest to the batter. As others mentioned, my batter was a bit too dry, so I had some heavy whipping cream on hand (why not??) and stirred in, just a drizzle of it, till the batter seemed moist enough. I had to bake this in a 9x9 in pan, as I could not find my muffin form. We ended up with kind of a cake or Zucchini Bread. But, it was just a bit dry. Great flavor though. It may have been the reduction of sugar AND the whole wheat flour that contributed to the dryness. So, next time, I think I'll increase the amount of shredded zucchini or even add some shredded carrot as others did, to get the moisture level up, but still keep it healthy.
