Healthy Zucchini Bread

It's that time of year again..

The time where our garden is giving us plenty of vegetables.. and we're up to our eyeballs in zucchini and summer squash... again!

I'm not complaining, though, there are so many dishes and desserts I can make with zucchini - like this!

I adapted this recipe from here - although they use a gluten-free recipe, and this one has a little wheat. I changed quite a bit around, took out the sugar, and most of the eggs and added in some replacements. It came out really great - hubby's currently working on his second piece - we won't tell him it's clean though! ;)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups zucchini, grated
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or other flour, although I can't attest to how it will come out!)
  • 1 cup oat flour (I used regular oats and a blender and made it into oat flour that way, super easy!)
  • 1 cup ground Flaxseed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 overripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Grease two bread pans and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together applesauce, olive oil, egg, vanilla, zucchini, and banana in a large bowl, set aside.

Mix together dry ingredients. Add to wet, stirring well.

Blend all together in a food processor, then add raisins, mixing well.

Pour evenly into prepared pans. Bake at 350 until knife comes out clean (it took about 45 minutes for my oven).

Enjoy! Try not to eat a whole loaf! ;)
