Zucchini Bread


6 tbsp ground flax seeds

½ c warm water

2 c cane sugar (or light brown sugar)

½ c oil

½ c applesauce

1 tsp vanilla

2 to 2½ c grated zucchini (~3 medium-sized ones)

3 c whole wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp nutmeg (optional)

1 tsp salt

1 c chocolate chips or raisins, optional


Grease two loaf pans.

Mix together flax seeds and warm water.

Add sugar, oil, applesauce, and vanilla; beat well.

Add grated zucchini; stir til combined.

In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.

Add dry mixture to wet and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened and everything is incorporated evenly; some lumps are fine. If adding additional mix-ins, fold them in now. Divide batter between prepared pans.

Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Let cool a few minutes before slicing.
