[COLOR=Red]Update to my Zucchini Pecan Bread.[/COLOR]

One of the reasons I wanted to make a zucchini bread is when I was young my mother used to make zucchini bread and then after it was cooled she would cut the loaf up into fingers, spread them out on a cookie sheet and bake them on low heat until they were semi-hard crispy crunchy. To me they reminded me of biscotti but not quite as hard.

Anyway with that in mind, I slice the remainder of my bread into fingers and baked in a 275 oven for 20 min on each of the 4 sides of the finger.

Since each finger cookie was 1/2 of a slice of the bread they counted out at 1 carb each.

Yum they are just as delicious as I remember them.....without the guilt.

Kevin..........I made your LC Zucchini Pecan Bread last night. We just LOVED it! I didn't have the Wheat Protein Isolate 5000 so I used Vital Wheat Gluten instead. I subbed canola oil for the coconut oil since I didn't have any of that, either. It came out perfect. Thanks so much for this recipe! I have lots of Zucchini in my garden. I guess I'll be baking lots of bread. Oh, I only baked it for 30 minutes. I almost think it could have come out a few minutes sooner. I used a silpat bread pan. I don't know if that accounts for the shorter baking time. Thanks, again!!!

WPI and VWG are pretty close. The WPI has a little more protein in it. I always make bread in glass or pyrex also what rack you bake it on can mean different baking times as well as many other variables. I alway approach baking times with caution the first time I make something till I see how it goes in my oven.
I'm glad you liked it :)
