Coconut Yogurt Zucchini Bread

Coconut Yogurt Zucchini Bread

I shared this recipe over at Remodelaholic last week and I wanted to share with all of you too!  We loved, loved, loved this bread AND my husbands office loved it too… he shared a loaf at an office meeting and it was a hit!

In our neck of the woods, fall is in the air and the temperatures are beginning to cool down and that means our garden is beginning to come to end.   Our zucchini plants, however, are still growing strong… probably like a lot of yours too!   So, I thought it would be fun to share a delicious zucchini recipe to give you a fresh idea for how to use some up.

This bread is moist and delicious AND healthy too!  I always try to make my recipes as healthy as possible while still keeping all the flavor!

I struggled with my weight for most of my life until my 30’s (here are links to my weight loss story Part A and Part B– if you’d like to read more)  SO, skinning down recipes has become my passion!
