Hi Amie, I tried this bread, smelled great, crust tasted good, but was very gooey wet inside. I wonder if my bananas and zucchinis were too large. Can you provide actual amounts for the bananas and zucchinis instead of just 'large'? I would like to make this bread recipe work. Any other suggestions too? Thanks.

We made this recipe and made a few substitutions (1/8 c coconut flakes and 1/4 c honey instead of cranberries and pine nuts). It was very very wet. It appeared done, and we flipped it out and it was soup on the inside. Also, it tasted very strongly of almond. If you are planning to make this recipe, I would recommend draining the zucchini, or cutting back on the wet ingredients significantly, and only putting in a 1 tsp (or none) of the almond extract. Goodluck!

I made this recipe and from reading the comments, tried something a little different.
I steamed the zucchini (6 of them for a double batch) and let it sit for about an hour and let it drain. I then put the zucchini in a gallon size baggie and put in fridge for 2 days. There was about 2 cups of liquid in the bag when I was ready to bake. I drained that. My bread was still a little moist but held together very well. Excellent bread for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks... Will bake again.

I wish you lived near here, I have the greatest massage therapist she does Swedish style, She can loosen up the stressed tight muscles wonderfully, I am prone to getting knots in my shoulders and neck, so I have to have them worked out once a month otherwise they start to limit mobility and hurt.

Oh, I did.... was referred to pt which hasn't helped at all. My muscles are super tight and they supposedly are causing the back pain. No idea what originally caused the problem but it started a couple years ago and has just gotten worse.

Than you for your replies. You have given me a lot of think about?

Maybe you should have your back checked by a doctor, if the pain is constant and is not improving. You could be developing another AI issue like Ankylosing Spondylitis. At least consider trying to find the cause (compressions fractures, slipped disk, whatever).

A smart woman, our cycling lady is! I would heed her advice.
