Zucchini Bread


Each time I walk into a Starbucks I eye the bakery section, each time hopeful to catch sight of a slice of Zucchini bread. Each time I am disappointed. To think I had my first introduction to zucchini bread at a Starbucks. I recently came to know that the assortment of baked goodies offered at Starbucks vary by locality. So likely no chance of seeing it here! Lately having resumed my baking adventures, I of course wanted to bake zucchini bread and found the perfect healthy recipe for it at Whole Foods.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup applesauce
2 tbsp yogurt
1 cup grated zucchini
1/3 cup toasted chopped walnuts
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 tbsp hemp (optional)
1 tbsp flax meal (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Meanwhile in a separate bowl whisk together egg, oil, apple sauce, yogurt and vanilla extract. Combine all ingredients. Fold in zucchini and walnuts. Being me, I tossed in some flax meal and hemp.

Lightly grease a bread pan. Pour in the dough and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the toothpick test passes.

Cool and enjoy with a fresh cup of coffee!
