Madison was one when I first played around with this and loved it then, but I wasn't sure how she would feel seeing small green specs (she doesn't like zucchini) in her bread now that she's five, but she loved it! Give this a try, I'm sure you'll agree, and bonus, a perfect way to get your kids to eat zucchini. And yes, you can also make these as muffins although the cooking time will be less.
