Makes 12 slices

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup quick cooking oats (or steel cut oats), divided

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

2 large eggs

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla

1-3/4 cups lightly packed grated zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)

2 tbsp packed brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-1/2- by 4-1/2-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup oats, walnuts, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil and vanilla. Stir in zucchini. Add flour mixture in three additions, stirring just until moistened.

4. Spread batter in prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and the remaining oats; sprinkle evenly over the batter.

5. Bake for 1 hour until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately remove from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
