"Kristin is right, her mom's zucchini bread recipe is great! We gave it a healthier spin by reducing the sugar, increasing the nuts, and adding a bit of buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour is very nutritious: it contains the 8 amino acids, is high in lysine, and is a good source of B vitamins and iron - and it's gluten-free!"

I made this gluten free by substituting all the flour for gluten free all purpose flour plus 2 teaspoons of Xanthum Gum. I also added the zest of one lemon. It is awesome!
