Healthy, Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread Recipe

This recipe is for you, Leslie. I got this out of the MOPS cookbook, but changed it up to make is healthy. If you are looking for a inexpensive, easy breakfast/snack for your kids or something to take to a potluck, this stuff is always a hit. 

Healthy, Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread Recipe
3 eggs
2 cups sucanat
2 cups grated or ground zucchini
1 c butter (you could also do 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix together all liquids and then add all the dry ingredients (I just turn on my Kitchen Aid and start dumping). Pour into 2 greased 9x5 loaf pans and bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan to cool completely. This recipe freezes well.

Do you grind your what yourself? I am wondering if the hard white or soft white wheat kernels would work better for this?

Looks wonderful!!

I don't grind the wheat myself. I have always used soft white (which makes whole wheat pastry flour). As with any whole wheat product, it tends to crumble the next day. The applesauce seems to help with that problem. If you try this recipe, let me know how you like it, OK?

Ok, thanks! I am going to try this - and it probably won't be here the second day :0) cause that sort of stuff disappears quick!

I will let you know how it turns out!!

Yum...GREAT recipe Jackie! I would have liked to have tried it but our courgettes didn't do so well this year? :(

I use a similar one myself for "Spicy Courgette/Zucchini Muffins! They are delicious!
