*White whole wheat flour is milled from whole white wheat rather than “red” wheat, which makes it lighter in color and less dense/bitter in flavor. Yet it’s got the same nutritional value of regular whole wheat flour, which we love!

can I add zuchinni without changing anything else?

    Hi Roxy - we haven't tried that and typically baking recipes are a little more picky. Zucchini will add moisture to the bread that you may need to compensate for but you can always experiment!

I have started to substitute chopped dates in my banana bread recipes that call for chocolate chips. Not that I do not like chocolate but it makes it moist and I think it is healthier for you

    Hi Danielle! We get it all over the place - Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Hy-Vee, Cub - most places should have it available!

    I think that would work! We haven't tried it specifically but I don't know why it wouldn't :)

You forgot to mention when to add yogurt. I'm sure it's with the wet ingredients.
