Healthy Zucchini Bread | Vegan

The Zucchini Bread Recipe That'll Save You Over 100 Calories

While the idea of zucchini bread may sound healthy, don't be fooled! Most are loaded with sugar and butter, which means they're also loaded with calories — we're talking 340 per slice!

Naturally sweetened with ripe banana, this recipe is also vegan, which cuts back on fat and cholesterol but doesn't compromise on flavor. You'll notice that the amount of zucchini in this bread may be more than a typical recipe, but it makes a healthier dessert that's slightly dense, deliciously moist, and full of fiber. Best of all, it's only 226 calories per slice!
