Zucchini Oatmeal Bread! (see recipe below)
What’s that you say? Am I eating breakfast again?
Well yes, I guess I technically am. But it’s lunch.
I was actually really craving eggs for breakfast this morning, but couldn’t manage to have anything with any sort of heat to it. On Friday evening, I was lucky enough to get my hands on another batch of Kathryn’s chickens’ eggs and have been dying to have some ever since. They’re seriously just so good.
So for lunch, I decided to make myself a scramble with 2 whole eggs, diced tomatoes, fresh basil, and provolone cheese.
On the side, I had another piece of Zucchini Oatmeal Bread topped with peanut butter.
I’ll tell ya…I’m totally lovin’ on this stuff.
(I made sure to eat both edge pieces yesterday while they were still warm and crispy)
I’m so thankful that Christina shared this recipe with me. She said that it came from her mom, which she slightly adapted, and then she passed it on to me. Then I slightly adapted her version…
And now I’m passing it on to all of you!

2. Combine the eggs, applesauce, and vanilla in a bowl and mix until blended. Stir in the zucchini.

So far, it’s been great topped with honey butter, cinnamon cream cheese, and peanut butter.
It’s a winner.
