  3. Mix together the wet ingredients in a large bowl.  Then mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Add the dry to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly, then fold in the grated zucchini.  Mix.
  5. Sprinkle in half of the walnuts – reserve the rest for the top of the bread – and mix.
  6. Spray a baking or muffin pan with oil then  add the batter.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the crust is  golden brown and a toothpick poked in the middle of it comes out clean.
