Recipe by Beachbunnymom

Not only are you getting your veggies with this bread, it is super healthy because I use applesauce instead of oil and part Splenda instead of all sugar.

Delicious!!!!! This recipe is wonderful! I freeze my shredded, seeded, peeled zucchini in 2 cup increments so I can make this recipe all year long. I thaw my zucchini in the microwave on defrost and dump the whole bag, water and all, into the mix. I also use 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour. I add about 1/3 cup of flax seed as well. I do not buy chocolate squares, rather, I substitute 6 Tablespoons of cocoa melted with 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil. I do not use Splenda unless the loaf is for my diabetic dad. I generally use regular sugar in the same measurements for my own family. These loaves get eaten up the same day they are made!
