A few months ago I tasted zucchini bread that was different from all the other zucchini breads. It didn’t have cinnamon and it was light in color, not dark. I also found out that it contained oats.
Use zucchini pulp you put up last summer. I also add nuts after everything is mixed.
A big thank-you to the woman who gave me this recipe.

3 eggs, beaten
1 cup oil
2 cups flour
1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups zucchini, grated
