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.
