Healthified Zucchini Bread

Healthified? You bet!! I found a recipe that was healthy...but I tweaked it a bit.

2 1/2  Cups Shredded zucchini (about 2 medium)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup Almond milk (they used canola oil)
3/4 cup egg whites or egg beaters
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 1/2 cups Stevia (they used ...gasp!...Sugar)
1 1/2 cups all purpose wheat flour
1 1/2 cups Almond flour (they used white flour)
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional, I did not use either)

  1. Heat oven to 350. spray bottoms only of 2 8x4 inch loaf pans with cooking spray (you could also use muffin pans to control the serving sizes)
  2. In a large bowl, mix zucchini, applesauce, almond milk, egg whites,vanilla and stevia until well blended. stir in all remaining ingredients except nuts until well blended. Stir in nuts. Spoon batter into pans.
  3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen wides of loaves from pans; remove and place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about one hour.
