Recipe For Carrot Zucchini Bread

Carrot Cake and Zucchini Bread Meet in This Perfect Summer Snack

Throw out your old zucchini bread recipes because this is the only one you'll need. Mixed with grated carrot and applesauce to add fiber and natural sweetness, each slice is perfectly soft and moist. Made with less sugar than traditional loaves, this bread is still amazingly sweet and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Just look at those gorgeous flecks of green and orange! Any zucchini would be proud to be a part of this delicious recipe you can enjoy as a yummy breakfast (smothered with peanut butter, of course) or for a sweet after-dinner treat.

Carrot Zucchini Bread

Ingredients

2 tablespoons ground flaxmeal
6 tablespoons water
2 cups grated zucchini (about 1 large or 2 medium)
1/2 cup grated carrots (about 1 large)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray two loaf pans.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flaxmeal and water, and set aside.
  3. Grate the zucchini and carrot, and place in a large bowl. Add the sugar, oil, applesauce, and vanilla, and mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together.
  5. Add the flaxmeal and water mixture to the zucchini mixture. Then stir in the dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Even banana nut bread batter looks "yucky." I have been baking this recipe for years before the flax seed craze, and everyone has enjoyed it at Thanksgiving and for breakfasts. So, give it a go, or bake.

ha I have to agree with a lot of the other commenters. if I wanted to be healthy with dessert I think some mixed berries and cool-whip in a pretty tray would be more appealing.

Oooh, this sounds good! And I'm always up for trying to bake anything that contains flax. Thanks for the recipe!

and it looks too dense.I'd up the baking powder to at least 1/2 tsp and maybe whip the egg white +1 to soft peaks and then fold it into the batter to lighten it.

Nice recipe and love the absence of nuts, but I'm not feeling the end product.I think the WW flour and flax make the bread look like a mud pie.
