|This is the bread I had at the house a couple weeks ago and many asked for the recipe. I made it for my son's girlfriend for her birthday because I had these gigantic zucchinis in my deck garden - the size of my shin!! It was so good I made more for the run. So here to you go!!
Yield: 2 loaves
6 tbsp ground flax seeds
½ c warm water
2 c turbinado sugar (or light brown sugar)
½ c oil
½ c applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
2 to 2½ c grated zucchini (~3 medium-sized ones)
2 c all-purpose flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 c chocolate chips or raisins, optional
Grease two loaf pans.
Mix together flax seeds and warm water.
Add sugar, oil, applesauce, and vanilla; beat well.
Add grated zucchini; stir til combined.
In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.
Add dry mixture to wet and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened and everything is incorporated evenly; some lumps are fine. If adding additional mix-ins, fold them in now. Divide batter between prepared pans.
Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Let cool a few minutes before slicing.
