Zucchini Bread Recipe

What You'll Need


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)


How to Make It


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!
