  1. Samantha Wiles says:

    what meals would the zucchini bread be approved for?

    1. Rosie says:

      I was wondering the same thing… And is it okay to eat it while we’re toning or just for the “maintain” part?

  2. Rhiannon says:

    yay!! I was just searching for a zucchini bread recipe last night (to use up GIANT zucchinis!) but couldn’t find anything with minimal sugar and preferably almond flour (and chocolate). Even did a tone it up recipe search- but now, here it is. This one looks perfect- already have everything! thank you <3

  3. Sydney says:

    Can you use a different type of flour? Like whole wheat?

    1. Jackie Vega says:

      The almond flour gives it more protein and makes it better for gluten sensitivities.

    2. Straddle Back says:

      I substituted whole wheat flour – should be fine

  4. Hope says:

    Can you sub stevia for the brown sugar? (or for the agave in other recipes?)

  5. Angeli L Henkle says:

  7. Ashley Short says:

    I made this last night:( looked nothing like pic and it did not taste good! Did anyone get it to come out?

    1. Straddle Back says:

      Mine is baking right now but I’m not optimistic.. the consistency was totally off. I ended up adding some canola oil because the mix was too dry. Still looks very weird so we’ll see how it comes out!

  8. april flores says:

    Tried making this today. The “batter” was so dry I tried adding a 1 cup water, but that barely made a difference. After baking 35 minutes it was just crumbles. Maybe add more egg or some applesauce or something?

  9. Adriana Behr says:

    chocolate craving! made this today. I agree, the batter didn’t seem right, so I added an extra egg (mine seemed small), and extra 1/4 cup oil and extra 2 T Greek Yogurt. My zucchini was also frozen, so once I thawed it, there was some water in it, which helped. Fresh zucchini may “sweat” when baking though to help with that consistency. Hope this helps!

  10. Rebecca Lippert says:

    This turned out ok for me, a little dry maybe. But it seems more like a cake than a bread. And calorie-wise, it’s soooo high. 180 per slice, if you get 12 slices out of your loaf. Seems really high in sugar and oil.

  11. Stefanie Pennell says:

    mine came out perfect, just follow the recipe exactly :) it was delicious

    1. Laura says:

      Hi Stefanie! I had a hard time with my zucchini bread, even after baking for some reason mine turned out just crumbles too (see pic after baking). And before I put it in the oven the batter wasn’t “battery”, it was very dry. I see you mentioned to follow directions closely, do you have any other suggestions? Did you add anything extra? Thanks! Laura

      1. Stefanie Pennell says:

        oh no that looks awful? so I made mine again last night with no issues. I don’t have perfect fit protein powder and used the Eas brand. that might make a difference? other then that I didn’t change out any of the ingredients. It should definitely be “battery”. did you mix the wet and dry ingredients separately first, that might make a difference. and you added the zucchini, yogurt, and coconut oil? Cause yours looks really really dry, mine are really soft and moist inside.

        1. Laura says:

          Hi Stefanie, thanks for your reply. I figured it out! I did not follow directions exactly the first time. I subbed in coconut flour for almond flour and added the chocolate chips in too soon. When I just followed it exactly it came out Fantastic!! Thanks again!
