Ingredients

DESCRIPTION

This bread is a combination of zucchini and banana bread, and it is a wonderful way to use up old bananas and dip into that summer harvest of zucchini. The bread tastes more like banana bread than zucchini bread, but it has the added nutritional benefits of vegetables. This bread is lower in fat that the standard banana/zucchini bread because applesauce replaces some of the oil in the recipe. Still using some oil, however, will prevent the bread from getting rubbery. Experiment by using pumpkin instead of bananas during the autumn months or by adding walnuts and dates! This recipe makes 2 loaves. Enjoy!



INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats (Quaker Old Fashioned Oats)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs (or Egg Beaters to cut some calories)
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 medium overripe bananas, mashed (the riper, the sweeter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup raisins (or dates or walnuts)
