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!
