Cooling on my kitchen counter this afternoon are a couple of loaves of low fat Zucchini Banana Bread.

What makes it low fat?

The recipe makes 2 loaves, and only calls for a 1/4 cup of oil, which is 3 tablespoons. Dispersed over 2 loaves, it’s not terrible at all. The recipe also calls for 4 eggs. Skip the eggs and use an egg replacer, or, use Egg Beaters like I did.

The recipe uses white flour, whole wheat flour (I like Whole Foods’ 365 Whole Wheat Pastry Flour) and oats, plus a generous addition of shredded zucchini, applesauce, smashed bananas and raisins. As of this moment, half of the first loaf is already gone – my husband, high schooler and I all sliced warm bread and stood around the kitchen cramming it into our mouths.

What else is on the counter?

I picked up a fab cannonball melon at the Covington Farmer’s Fair yesterday, along with a cantaloupe, some lovely romas, garlic and a pepper. Fresh pasta sauce (the uncooked kind) is on the menu tonight.

The recipe

Let’s face it – zucchini is everywhere right now. Whip up some loaves or muffins of this great recipe and freeze a few.
