Coconut Zucchini Bread with Lemon Glaze

Super moist, chewy and flavorful were words taste-tasters used to describe this scrumptious bread.  You can just call it AMAZING!  The shredded coconut and zucchini provide the moisture while the Greek yogurt, whole wheat pastry flour and coconut oil provide the nutrition boost.  Here’s another great way to use up the zucchini surplus.  You also might enjoy this yummy zucchini recipe posted a couple of days ago:  Zucchini Lasagna.

This recipe was inspired by Two Peas And Their Pod food blog.  Original recipe is here.  I switched to canola oil and used whole wheat pastry flour.
