I have had this recipe since April 2008. I have celiac so I converted this recipe into gluten free, it is delicious.

I made two loaves of the Zucchini Oat Bread and my husband loved it. One we ate and the other I froze.  It's a heavy bread unlike many other zucchini bread recipes but very good. I made it just as the recipe said, but mine did take about 1 hr 30 minutes to bake.  Toothpick test is very important.  It's even better heated a little in the microwave with butter on the slices before eating.  Will definitely be making again.
