Zucchini Bread

while my garden took a real beating over the summer, my neighbor had some surplus, so there was still zucchini for turning into bread!

in the past I had used a standard recipe, but most all of them call for a cup of oil, which is just way more than I think is healthy

I've been doing some fiddling around with the recipes, and this loaf has been judged a success!

here then is the recipe:

the Dry ingredients:

2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips

the Wet ingredients:

1 whole egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbls canola oil
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cup shredded zucchini

Preheat over to 325 degrees

combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well

combine the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl and mix well

add wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stir until just blended

pour into 9x5 greased loaf pan

bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean

cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely before cutting
