I've tried to make zucchini bread a few times this summer, this is the first batch that came out tasty and not too moist. I'd like to refine the recipe to make it lower calorie.

Recipe Ingredients for first (good) attempt zucchini bread

3 cups grated zucchini
2 cup light brown sugar
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 egg whites
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for first (good) attempt zucchini bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, and set aside. Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater (to yield 1 3/4 cups); set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together sugars, oil, vanilla, and eggs.

  2. Into a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture, and stir to combine well. Stir in grated zucchini.

  3. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes; invert onto a wire rack, then reinvert, top side up. Cool completely before slicing.
