You won't believe it's an all whole wheat quick bread! Lower in sugar (honey) that most recipes, this zucchini bread is fabulous. Low fat seekers can sub 1 cup of applesauce for oil. I have not made the carrot bread variety. From Whole Foods for the Whole Family.

I did this one with both 2 cups of zucchini and 2 mashed overripe bananas, and used pumpkin pie spice instead of individual cinnamon and nutmeg (I know, I know). It turned out really moist and delicious, and not overly sweet. Probably my favorite version ever. I used honey and coconut oil.

Great recipe! Want to try more healthy alternatives such as coconut oil, applesauce, and brainless flours like coconut or almond flour.. Made a double recipe and used up all of my juicer pulp. Kale, chard, carrot, apple, strawberry, Asian pear, kiwi, beets, and broccoli! Along with walnuts, I added about 1/4 cup of flaxseeds to round off the cup of nuts/seeds. Every one loves it! It's going fast and is great with my morning juice!

This is a great recipe. I appreciate that it is made with whole wheat flour and honey instead of refined sugar. I grated 2 medium zucchinis (should have weighed them, but forgot) and ended up with about 2 cups. I used all the zucchini, and it was just fine. Very moist. I used melted coconut oil and honey. I also used sliced dried apricots because I didn't have raisins. Wow! I'm going to do that again in a quick bread recipe. It added a lot of moisture and pockets of sweetness. Definitely making this again.
