All I have is chunked pineapple can I put that in a food process to make it crushed to put in the recipe?
I just pulled zucchini muffins out of the oven and they are fantastic! I was out of stevia so I subbed 1/4 cup erythritol and added 1/4 water. Perfect amount of sweetness!
The toughest part about this recipe was finding clean canned pineapple. If my garden had cooperated I would have made a LOT of this this summer and had a stockpile in the freezer. Who can’t grow zucchini? Me. NEXT YEAR! I do love having food that I can give to my baby grandson – sugar free, high fiber, wholesome and good tasting!
Dole brand and Meijer brand both come in an additive free 8 ounce can.
Made these as muffins today for the first time. I don’t have Stevia so used Erythritol. They tasted great. I’m sure you chose Stevia rather than Esugar for a reason, Julie Marie, since you are the master recipe guru! Just glad they turned out! 🙂

Message from Sue F in St. Thomas, who can’t quite figure out how to post it herself:
I didn’t have pineapple so I used a can of clean mandarin oranges instead and made them as muffins — they are delish. I blended up the wet ingredients before adding the zucchini.
These muffins are my absolute favorite so far! I love the texture and flavor so much. I put them in my purse or cooler when I know I will be out for a while in case I get hungry. Everyone I have given them too, all of them eat a SAD diet, have really liked them. I thought I would hate baking and not like the texture of PD muffins so I put off making them for months after starting PD. Now I always make sure to have some in my fridge and freezer. When I bake the I usually bake 2 batches at a time. The only thing is when I make these I put them in my ceramic lined muffin tin in case you couldn’t tell by my first sentence. In the muffin tin I bake them for 22 minutes and they come out perfect! Try them and enjoy!
I’ve made this twice and love it! Perfect with a cup of tea!
My whole family loves this recipe! I make them into muffins and bake for 30 min. The always turn out great and they’re the perfect size to grab if we’re on the go. I’m hoping to freeze a bunch before school starts along with the breakfast brownies to have for mornings. Has anyone tried freezing them?
I tried this last night and forgot the zucchini and it still rose well, looked and tasted great! Good recipe for breakfast or snack food. Thanks.
what changes would i need to make to make this into muffins?
I’d keep it the same. The bake time maybe shorter.
Has anyone used a replacement for the bananas? Apple Sauce, pumpkin? I can’t eat bananas, but I love zucchini bread!
Hi Vanessa, I haven’t tried an alternative. If you do let us know how it worked out.
Are you supposed to drain the pineapple?
Do not drain the pineapple. If using a can that measures 8 ounces (1 cup) pineapple, use the whole can including the juice. If using a larger can of pineapple stir to incorporate pineapple with juice and measure one cup.
Don’t have pineapple, what can I use in its place?
This is one of my favorite PD recipes. So moist and flavorful. I don’t even use the stevia and it is plenty sweet. Delicious!
Ok I will, thank you, I am trying to read as much as fast as I can,
Are dates allowed on the plan? I would like to add if they are?
I suggest you read the FAQ section and read through the article Sugar Not So Sweet.
I made the Zucchini Bread and it was excellent! I did add chopped walnuts. I think this could be made into muffins as well by pouring the batter in a muffin tin rather than a loaf pan. I omitted the stevia. Yum!
I made this a second time, substituting oat flour for the whole wheat flour. It was just as delicious as the wheat version!
This bread is delicious! Not at all dry, which I love!
I think this bread is really good! A nice change for breakfast or a snack:) Yummy!
I used 1 tsp of stevia. Turned out very good.
How much is in a dropper?
I am so excited to try this! Making it this weekend! woohoo!
