- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups flour

Preheat over to 325° F (165° C). Grease two loaf pans.
In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients except any nuts or chocolate chips. Mix well.
- In a smaller bowl, combine all the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and slowly fold in the wet ingredients, mixing well and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add nuts or chocolate chips if using.

Be sure to squeeze the moisture from the grated zucchini before using, and pat dry with a paper towel.
