    I love this recipe and get compliments on the muffins all the time. The changes I make are as follows: I use whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1/2-3/4 cup chocolate chips( not the miniature ones but regular size). The chocolate chips give it sweetness so not as much sugar is needed but if you like sweet then keep the sugar amount at 3/4 cup.  -  28 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I used lactose free milk and pecans instead of walnuts. I made no other changes. This zucchini bread is FANTASTIC. The texture of these muffins is like the lightest, fluffiest cupcake you've ever had, though it's not overly sweet. The measurements are spot on, everything is perfect. This is the best zucchini muffin we've ever had. EVER.  -  12 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very Good! Did substitute all natural applesauce in place of oil. Actually shredded more zucchini to continue baking more so I can share with family and friends! Second time around I did use whole wheat flour...still so yummy!  -  05 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
