Lemon Zucchini Mini Loaves


I have SO MANY ZUCCHINI'S from my Sisters place!  She loaded me up yesterday with Zucchini, tomatoes (I already have a tonne of my own), Corn, Potatoes and Eggs! 

I had the house sort of to my self last night with Asher and Gord at the races and Fraser in bed, so I decided to get started on some baking with the Zucchini.  I only used one Zucchini and I made Zucchini Parm Bites, these Whole Wheat Lemon Zucchini Mini Loaves and a to die for Zucchini Brownie!  I'll add the links to those recipes as soon as they are on the blog!  

For now here is the Whole Wheat Lemon Zucchini Mini Loaf Recipe!  These are our breakfast this morning!  The awesome thing here is that you can use this recipe to make muffins or a big loaf too!  The glaze is optional as it does have icing sugar in it but it does add lots of lemony flavour!  Next time I'm going to experiment with a honey lemon glaze and see what I can do to eliminate that little bit of icing sugar!
