Baking with zucchini really is the perfect way to get fresh GREEN veggies into your diet while still enjoying your favorite foods! I mean your kids and hubby won’t even notice you’ve added them because zucchini has absolutely no flavor when mixed in with bread and chances are they’re going to ask for seconds. For those of you who have never used zucchini before in your baking, one of the things I love the most is that shredded zucchini really makes your bread (or cake) super moist!!

The Greek yogurt too makes the crumb super moist. Moisture is usually sacrificed when fat (the oil) is reduced, but the Greek yogurt’s all like I got this.
