Thanks Kevin.

Looks good, and a sneaky way to get DH to eat veggies!

One thing, we don't like coconut very much ... could we substitute, do you think, for the coconut oil and the shredded coconut? (Not to mention I don't have any ... heh heh heh) I have some flax meal, could I use that instead of the shredded? Or would that just be too odd ... :laugh:

Any vegetable oil would work and although flax is not a choice I would make it will most likely work.. If you want to be even sneakier you could always throw in some sf chocolate chips too.

Hey Kevin?

Do you think spaghetti squash would work here? I've never cared for zucchini, just can't seem to develop a taste for it.

TIA

Thats a great idea. I'd cook it until it was aldente then drain and use. Shredded raw would be too firm I think. Thanks for the idea.

Not all coconut oil tastes like coconut. The kind I have just says "Organic" and "Expeller Pressed" on the lable. It is 100% bland, with no flavor at all. I believe I read on another forum that it's the "Virgin" coconut oil that tastes like coconut. :)

I made a batch of these this morning using spaghetti squash rather than zucchini and they turned out quite nice with a great favor.

This for some reason doesn't strike me as a classic Kevin.
Maybe too healthy looking?
But yes of course I'm going to make it also. I like healthy looking.

Chris, almost 100% of the time I use my flour mix in the recipes like this that call for multiple lc flours. I have resisted changing the original recipe for those that do not want to use the mix.

TY!
I will do that next time..made this and I have ate almost a 1/4 loaf already...:laugh: the only thing..there is so much not/starch it wonder if you would have to add more to use in the bake mix if you sub the bake mix for the Almond Flour and the WPI 5000 because there is some in your bake mix...

TY!
HUGS

I want your grand baby..she is so CUTE!:heart:

Kevinpa 07-17-2009 10:07 AM

no, actually I would use less. The not/sugar in this recipe is to control the cooling effect of the erythritol but since there is some already in the mix you should need less.

mac24312 07-17-2009 10:12 AM

OK..I have got more to make this weekend...I will just sub the bake mix out for the WPI 5000, Almond Flour and Not Sugar.. ;]

Wonderful use for all my crop of Zuccuni...wish I could make a bread with Yellow Squash as well..

TY!

Pam 07-19-2009 12:42 PM

Made this yesterday, for the first time, but without adding the pecans. WOW!!! This will be my favorite Zucchini Bread recipe. Lots of flavor. Thanks, Kevin!

Actually, I googled yellow squash bread and found quite a few recipes making a bread....looking very similar to zucchini bread....out there.

So....why not give it a whirl.....if my crop ever starts coming in, I might try to make a loaf and if I do...I will post the results.

I just might try that because I have alot more yellow squash now instead of zucchini...will make a loaf tommorow and see how it works..

TY!

When I made Cleo's zucchini pizza with yellow squash, I actually liked the flavor better. But the yellow squash had more liquid, took longer to cook, and did not crisp as much. You may need a little extra flour mix. Or perhaps you could grate the yellow squash, salt it, drain it, and proceed.

lcmiller461 07-22-2009 10:03 AM

Trying this soon!

DEEDLYNN 07-22-2009 09:32 PM

OMG...made it this evening. Haven't cut some off for "fingers" yet, but the kitchen smelled good. Fairly easy to make (after I got organized) and yummooooooooooooooooooooo.

Great recipe. (I'm figuring out what to do with my netrition order beyond this recipe now. LOL.

SugarPop 07-24-2009 04:47 PM

I made these last night. They are really good - I followed the recipe exactly. I did taste the bread before I made them into "fingers" and honestly I really preferred the bread.....Very tasty. If you like coconut try this - It's a nice treat.

Thanks Kevin, for this recipe
