Cinnamon Zucchini Bread Recipe & Smart Balance

Cinnamon Zucchini Bread Recipe & Smart Balance
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Smart Balance. I received product samples, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Nothing says Back to School to me like a good loaf of Zucchini Bread! I grew up loving this stuff and a favorite memory from when I was in public school was my mom packing 2 slices of it in my lunch box–one for me and one for my friend Delana who loved it as much as I did (I will still occasionally make her a loaf if I’m in Wyoming around Christmastime!) It’s super delicious and just tastes like a soft, cinnamony desert–you can’t even taste the zucchini! This recipe is originally from a recipe by Faith Baptist Church in the Red Cliff Camp Cookbook, but my mom has adapted and tweaked it quite a bit over the years so now it’s pretty much her own 🙂

Smart Balance

Of course you can’t just have Zucchini Bread by itself–but slathering it with high calorie delights is kind of defeating the whole purpose of sticking the veggies in it, right? I also hate how convenience spreads are normally chock full of huge ingredient lists that claim ease and being being better for you but clearly aren’t! That’s why when I heard about Smart Balance I was intrigued! Sure enough  ingredient list was MUCH shorter, not to mention it had ingredients I could pronounce and wanted to eat!

Smart-Balance

Mmmm…..yeah! The choice was pretty easy for me! Not to mention that Smart Balance is also available in a 15 oz package in a space saving square container–pretty awesome. We have a very small fridge and it fills up FAST with all my cooking and baking! I’m all about space saving containers! Especially this one, its eco-friendly square tub reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 18%! That equals 6,487 newly planted trees each year — awesome right??!!

So now that you know what you’ll put on it I’m sure you’re wanting the recipe–right?!
