Zucchini Raisin Loaf Recipe!Posted: September 20, 2011
I have yet to find a store bought version of zucchini bread or banana bread that comes close to matching up with my homemade versions. This zucchini bread is moist (hate that word)..but describes this bread perfectly! its so good. I made it yesterday and half the loaf is already gone. nough’ said.
Here’s the line up
First up, mix together the applesauce, canola oil, shredded zuchinni, egg, vanilla extract, agave, and sugar
Next add in your dry ingrediets: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground flaxmeal, and salt
Then add in your mix-ins (I ended up just using all raisins, but you can put anything you want: for example, chocolate chips (highly recommended), toasted pecans, dried cranberries, dried apricots, etc)
Then Pour Mixture into a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes
its so good.
Make this now.
Zucchini Raisin Bread!
Servings: apx. 10 1 inch thick Slice: makes one small loaf
1 cup Zucchini (grated)
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or you could use another 1/4 cup canola oil)
1/3 cup sugar (or sugar substitute)
1/4 cup agave syrup (or maple syrup)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1.5 cup flour (whole wheat or all purpose)
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp Ground Flax Meal (Completely Optional, just adds more nutritional value)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup of your choosing (Raisins, Dried Cranberries, chocolate chips, toasted nuts, etc)
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Mix together All of Wet ingredients listed above
Next add in all dry ingredients listed above
Then fold in toppings. Make sure not to overmix batter!
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes. Until top of bread is firm to touch
Don’t wait to cool. eat this right away. with some butter or almond butter on top. Just make sure not to burn your tongue like I did
Some notes on recipe: This amount of ingredients made a smaller sized loaf then I expected. Next time I make this I would use the same ratio of ingredients but probably double the amount. If I were to make 2 loafs I would triple the amount.
Oh and incase your interested, 1 slice of this bread comes in at about 150 calories! not bad!
Hope you like it!
