This is an ultra-moist bread that is great at breakfast or paired with a spicy soup for dinner!
2 cups of lightly packed zucchini (peeled and grated)*
3 cups flour (we prefer organic varieties or gluten free baking flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp organic cinnamon
1/2 tsp organic nutmeg
1 cup organic raisins (optional)
3/4 cups nuts (pecans, walnuts) (optional)
3 eggs (we suggest going local and getting cage-free eggs, but Organic Valley has great options, too)
1 cup organic vegetable oil or 1 cup organic apple sauce
1 1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups fair trade, organic sugar
Sift dry ingredients together.
Beat eggs with sugar, oil and vanilla.
Stir in zucchini and add raisins and nuts (optional).
Divide the mixture between two greased 9X5-inch loaf pans.
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 50-60 mins.
*Yes, not everyone is lucky enough to have a fridge that’s overflowing with this green vegetable. That’s okay! Head out to your favorite farmers market or health food store and buy fresh, locally grown, organic zucchini.
