In search of

Gluten free zucchini bread recipes. I'm desperate! Please leave me links or recipes in the comments. (Note: Sadly, no bananas or pineapple for me.)

In past years, I always had a freezer full of (glutenized) zucchini breads. I need to make the switch.

In Indiana, if you walk up to a friend's house carrying a basket of zucchini they will lock their doors and pretend they're not home. Zucchini bread, however, is always welcome.

I hope you like it. I'm going to make it today. I haven't made it since last summer.

I had similar situations as you where several people, out of the blue would bring up Celiac disease. I took awhile for me to get it though, but your right we should listen to our bodies. I am much better than I was in the past but still not 100% like I would like to be. I keep telling myself I need to keep a food diary. I have a feeling there are other foods that trigger reactions. I'll have to work on that.
Thanks for the encouragement.

Baking for Love just posted a good-looking zucchini bread recipe too at this link:

I have to limit myself to one or two zucchini or yellow squash plants a year to avoid overload. Your tomatoes look great, Kay!

I meant to tell you.....I don't drain the applesauce in my zucchini bread recipe but I suppose you could if you wanted to.

Hi Kay...Enjoyed talking with you about being gluten free the other night at the Chatterbox.
I'll have to try this recipe out soon. Your blog is great and I love all of the beautiful photos of your garden, etc! Hope to see you soon at the Chatterbox!

I use the Zuchinni Bread recipe out of "Gluten-Free Quick and Easy" by Carol Fenster, and it is yummy.
