This is DELICIOUS. It tastes like a really good apple pie. The zucchini taste is not really noticeable, the apple flavor and the spices take over. And the crispy topping has a really satisfying texture. I made this for a family dinner and everyone loved it. It would be a nice dessert option at Thanksgiving instead of apple pie.

Mary Loou — do a copy and paste into a Windows document. Then cut out the black advertisements in the middle of the recipe. I do that all the time. This is a good modified recipe that adds a lot of fiber to modify the high sugars in the apples and make it a better recipe. The almond meal/flour plus other nuts and twice as much zucchini as apples help cut back on the sugars. Great example of how to modify a typical old time recipe for new time use.

This recipe looks great and will try it shortly. My question though is in printing the recipes we end up with black advertisements in the middle of the recipe and have to hand write the missing item. Is there some way to remove the advertisement?
