…Well try out this recipe for our Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread!

There is an abundance of zucchini in the Northeast. It is everywhere, in every market, in every garden, at every farm stand. It is a wonderful, healthy vegetable to serve as a side dish or mix into a main course.

Below is a zucchini bread recipe with white whole wheat flour and some applesauce to add some whole grain goodness and cut down on the fat. The taste is terrific!

Applesauce is naturally sweet and tastes delicious in bread. This method works for many baked goods that call for lots of oil. You can usually substitute at least half of the applesauce for oil, and still have a delicious and filling snack.
