I've got a lot of zucchini in my garden and was hoping to bake with it but all the recipes I've been finding online ask for 1-2 cups of sugar
I'm looking for healthy travel bread that I can pack for hikes and the beach.

I would prefer recipes without eggs but will use honey.

Thank you!

How about this one?

Gluten-Free Carrot Zucchini Cupcakes

Vegetarian, Gluten-Free

This gluten-free version of Carrot Zucchini Cupcakes replaces the wheat flour with rice flour and adds ground flax seed which gives the cupcakes body and texture as well as providing omega-3 fatty acids.
Makes 12 Cupcakes

* 1/2 cup expeller pressed canola oil
* 1/2 cup unbleached, evaporated cane sugar
* 1/4 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
* 2 large organic eggs
* 1 cup organic rice flour, (either white or brown rice flour)
* 1/2 cup organic flax seed meal
* 3/4 tsp baking soda
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 1/8 tsp salt
* 2 medium organic carrots, grated
* 1/2 medium organic zucchini, grated
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the oil with the sugar and applesauce. Add eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together the rice flour, ground flax seed, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the liquid ingredients. Fold in carrots, zucchini and nuts. Spoon into muffin cups filling 3/4 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until done when tested with a toothpick. Cool on a wire rack.

I had some last week and they are soo good.

Thanks! I'll try those, they sound yummy.

I was beginning to think that zucchini just needs lots of sugar to taste good in baking since there are not a lot of low sugar recipes out there.

thanks for posting your recipe
