• Clean Eating - Zucchini Bread

    I've made this recipe for so long that I forgot it wasn't my recipe.  Thank you to the Gracious Pantry for one delicious dessert! 

    Hopefully the timing is nice if you had a garden full of zucchini this summer!  

    --------

    (Makes 1 loaf or 10 slices)

    Ingredients:

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    2/3 cup honey
    1 generous cup grated zucchini (about 1 large zucchini)
    2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce
    2 tablespoons safflower or olive oil + extra for oiling the pans
    1 whole egg
    1 egg white
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
    3/4 cup plain, non-fat yogurt

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Oil 2 medium loaf pans with olive oil (use a mister if you have one), or 1 large loaf pan.
    In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and nutmeg.
    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, zucchini, apple sauce, egg and egg white, olive oil, lemon zest and yogurt. Mix well.
    Using a wooden spoon, stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture and blend well.
    Pour the batter into the loaf pan and place in the oven.
    Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
    Note: You may need to cover this loosely with foil if the top starts to get to brown.
