"Kristin is right, her mom's zucchini bread recipe is great! We gave it a healthier spin by reducing the sugar, increasing the nuts, and adding a bit of buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour is very nutritious: it contains the 8 amino acids, is high in lysine, and is a good source of B vitamins and iron - and it's gluten-free!"

It’s that time of the year where I’m besieged by the horde of zucchinis growing in the garden. I try to fend them off with any recipe I can find and of course zucchini bread is constantly being baked. So it’s nice to find a recipe that offers something a little different. The buckwheat flour adds a subtle change to the ordinary zucchini bread. The bread is not as moist as most zucchini breads I’ve made, but it has good flavor.
