Healthy Zucchini Bread

I was trying to find a way to get my veggies in with my breakfasts and snacks, and my husband decided to help me come up with a tasty but healthy zucchini bread recipe that is simple to make! We actually made it into a loaf AND into muffins and they both turned out great!

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350Β°F and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan (I also used non stick rubber muffin pan).
  2. Whisk the oil, agave, egg, yogurt, and vanilla together in a medium bowl until combined. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined. Avoid overmixing. Fold in the zucchini and your optional ingredients.
  3. Spread batter into the prepared loaf pan or muffin pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes (30 min for muffins). Baking times vary, so keep an eye on yours. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you find the top of the bread is browning too quickly in the oven, loosely cover it with aluminum foil.
  4. Remove the bread from the oven and set on a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Cover and store leftover bread at room temperature for up to 5 days.
