    Hi Jeff. I would use my regular zucchini bread recipe, sub out the oil for applesauce and the sugar for splenda [3/4 to 1] or a combination of sugar and splenda.

    p.s., how was your sister's wedding?

    Thanks Nancy, my sisters wedding went very well, it actually went better than we had planned. The service was about an hour after our regular church service, so everyone there just pitched in and help us set up the hall for both the wedding ceremony and the luncheon.

    I used to make a diabetic zucc loaf using ricotta,flour,zucchini,eggs , but I used to make large loaves so will have to work it out,,,basically,get about 6 zuccs grated and drained add flour to the zucchini about 1-2 cups [good to use half the amount of flour as
    a whole grain or a whole meal]mix through a cup of ricotta to flour and then 2 eggs with any other condiments or herbs and season if mix is too wet add more flour and if too dry add a little oil.....we also used to add peanuts for a texture thing.....bake in a slow oven about 170c for 45 min check at 30 mins should have a golden top and spring back..[ps you do not need any butter in this because of the ricotta and oil] :D
