    This was delicious! Now I’m curious if I could swap zucchini for banana and basically make it protein banana bread?

    So glad this is low cal and high protein because I could not stop myself after one slice. SO dang delicious. My husband and toddler loved it as well.

    I had to bake for 1.5 hrs. Next time I will try draining the zucchini first, as it was too wet after an hour in the oven.
