Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a baker!!  But occasionally I try and in the case of this bread it came out really yummy.  My problem with baking is the precise nature of it.  I definitely have to use a recipe and all that measuring is chaos I say.

I am loving pumpkin as I do every Fall and I love zucchini bread so I was thinking why not put them together?  Pumpkin zucchini bread sounds good so I went on a search for it.  I found a basic recipe on Allrecipes.com but it was loaded with sugar.  A full cup per loaf, yuck!  So I used the basic recipe but substituted all of the sugar for raw honey, egg substitute for the eggs and adjusted the seasonings to my liking.  The result is a flavorful, moist bread that you can feel good about eating.
