You can sub unsweetened applesauce for oil in a zucchini bread to lower the fat content. If using sweetened, make sure to reduce the sugar in the recipe.

Two zucchini bread recipes that call for whole wheat flour:

Also found the recipe I've pasted below while doing some poking around. I think you can totally take the recipe in a sweet direction by adding sugar and vanilla, and allowing the brightness of the zucchini and lemon to shine through: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/zucchini-ricotta-cheesecake-recipe.html
