This just didn't work for me at all. I found the orange juice flavor really overwhelmed the flavors of the zucchini and carrot. In addition, the texture did'nt seem quite right to me. I thought it seemed a little too crumbly and dry for a quick-bread, but it's probably because there is no added fat in the recipe. I gave it a few tries, toasted and not, buttered and not, but in the end I had to throw it away. I won't make this again, but thanks for posting the recipe, kburie.

I have made this recipe twice, and both times my husband and I took a loaf to work; both his colleagues and my colleagues love it! The second time I made it, however, I made a few adjustments. I used whole wheat flour and because of that added a little more applesauce (a "heaping" cup). I also increased the salt to 1 teaspoon and the pumpkin pie spice to 2 teaspoons. Thanks for sharing this recipe! It is so exciting to find healthy recipes that taste good.
