This recipe takes zucchini bread from good to great! I've gotten many compliments on this bread. It's great for gifts, parties or just slice up a loaf and watch it disappear! I like to use part coconut oil for extra flavor and nice texture.
|Shredded zucchini||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Vegetable oil||1 Cup (16 tbs) ((I like to use 1/2 coconut oil, melted, 1/2 veg. oil))|
|Crushed pineapple||8 Ounce , drained ((1 can))|
|Vanilla extract||2 Teaspoon|
|All purpose flour||3 Cup (48 tbs)|
|Sugar||1 3/4 Cup (28 tbs)|

|Ground cinnamon||1 1/2 Teaspoon|
|Baking powder||2 Teaspoon|
|Chopped nuts||1 Cup (16 tbs) ((I like to use macadamia or pecan))|
|Dried cranberries||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Shredded coconut||1/2 Cup (8 tbs) ((optional))|
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
