Mom’s (Healthy and Satisfying) Zucchini Bread

IMG_1550

If the holidays ingrained one skill set into the minds of the masses, it was probably baking.  It is Day One post-Christmas and our nerves are still firing at 350 degrees, our fingers still linger with the traces of white flour, and our memory still questions whether our pantry possess Baking Powder (or was it Baking Soda??)  Only problem with this scenario is that we are days away from New Years where resolutions fly of eating better, living better and potentially losing the extra 5lbs you gained eating (all of) your Aunt’s famous Pecan Pie. Here is a trick to fighting the baking urge and still retaining some semblance of health by serving this baked good to your household with confidence that it will a.) taste great b.) not count heavily against your daily intake of food.  Mom’s Zucchini Bread! As far as we see it, it is a win-win!
