2 cups grated zucchini (packed and not squeezed)
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder, aluminum free
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat or spelt flour
Cooking spray (I use Misto)
Chocolate chips, nuts etc., options add-ons (I didn’t)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line 9 x 5 loaf pan with unbleached parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add egg, applesauce, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; whisk until combined. Add zucchini and stir. Add flour and mix gently with a spatula just enough to combine. Pour batter into previously prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool off for 10 minutes. Holding onto the flaps of parchment paper remove healthy zucchini bread from a loaf pan and let it cool off completely before slicing with sharp serrated knife.
