Spiced Zucchini Bread

Really not sure what magazine this came from - I tore out the page and have made it so many times, it's getting harder to read.  This recipe makes 2 loaves, but I usually always double it.

3 large eggs
1 large zucchini, grated (about 2 cups)
3/4 cup oil (I use canola)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Beat eggs until foamy, add sugar, oil, zucchini, and vanilla.  Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.  Mix on low until just blended.  Add in walnuts by hand.  Pour into greased loaf pans and bake for about an hour at 325*.

If you make each loaf into 16 servings (yeah, right) each slice will have about 145 calories, 2 g protein, 18 g carbs, 8 g total fat (only 1 sat fat) 1 g fiber, 20 mg cholesterol, and 95 mg sodium

This really is good enough for a desert !
