Is zucchini bread good for you?

That depends on what recipe you use. My recipe has been designed to be a yummy and healthy treat. While other peoples recipes that you may find tubs of butter and oil in them and are filled to the brim with sugar. If you are looking for a Healthy zucchini bread that you can feel good about snacking on, then this is the recipe for you!

Do I need to peel zucchini for zucchini bread?

No, you do not need to peel the zucchini. You can peel the zucchini if you really want to, but there is no need and it would be a waste of time. This is because the grated zucchini gets softer when you bake it making the skin of the zucchini perfectly softy.

How many zucchini do you need for 1 cups shredded?

Because all zucchini are different sizes this a hard question to answer. 1 medium-sized zucchini should yield you about 1 cup of grated zucchini. That being said it is always better to be on the safe side. If you can buy two medium zucchini or 1 large zucchini you will be better off.
