Vegan Chocolate Cranberry Zucchini Bread Recipe

The Zucchini Bread That Tastes Like a Brownie

If your garden is overflowing with zucchinis, try this decadent twist on the classic zucchini bread recipe. The cocoa and dried cranberries give it a sweet flavor, but the grated zucchini and banana (used in place of eggs) still help it qualify as a healthy dessert. Plus it's vegan so this bread is low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

Can I also substitute the oil out of this recipe? You can use prunes in place of oil but since the eggs are already taken out, will taking out the oil as well be an issue. I have also read where zucchini can replace oil, so can i leave out the oil and just use more zucchini instead? Thanks
