Zucchini Bread Recipe


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • ¼ cup apple juice concentrate (thawed & undiluted)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2. Grate 2 cups of zucchini, which is approximately 2 small zucchinis.
  • 3. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and allspice in a large bowl and whisk together.
  • 4. In a separate bowl, whisk together applesauce, apple juice concentrate, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • 5. Add grated zucchini to wet mixture and stir until blended.
  • 6. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix just until dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Stir in walnuts, if using.
  • 7. Spoon batter into non-stick loaf pan. Bake on center rack of oven for approximately 50 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn bread out onto a cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing or storing.
  • 8. Serve as breakfast, snack, or dessert. I really like it served warm!
