Zucchini Bread and Muffins

I've been trying a bunch of different zucchini bread recipes lately.
I got some monster zucchinis from a guy at work.

He had planted pumpkins at the same time and he swears they got cross pollinated with them!
I think he might be right because I had one for awhile and it started to turn a bit orange.

Funny! They taste just like zucchini though, so they have worked great for bread and muffins and everything else!

So far my favorite is this Lemon Zucchini Recipe that I made into muffins. (241 calories each)

I'm not a huge lemon fan but the frosting on these makes them to die for. SO GOOD!  
The frosted bread here was also excellent.

That's a Carrot Zucchini Apple Bread. The recipe made 2 loaves so I took one to work with me. 
It was devoured! (245 calories for 1/12th the recipe)

This is an Orange Zucchini Bread recipe that I made into muffins. Generally you can take a bread recipe and then put it into muffin tins and cook it about 20 minutes and they are done. It's nice too if you want to make something but don't want to use the oven for a whole hours. I didn't add any nuts to this one so that it would be lower calorie. It's also a "lightened up" recipe to start with. The orange flavor is pretty subtle. They are really good! (160 calories each)

This was my first zucchini muffin recipe I made way back. I still really like it. 
Bisquick Zucchini Muffins (I make mine minus the actual Bisquick) (254 calories each)

Zucchini Spice Bread came out super fluffy and moist. Delicious. (246 calories each)
 Do you have a favorite Zucchini bread recipe?

These all look so good julie. I think I'd like the lemon and the carrot. I've been grilling zucchini all summer....I may try this for the family. I also wonder if I used the gluten free bisquick how that would work for me? Hmm.....now you got me thinking.
