What do you call bread when combined with vegetables? Breadgetables? This zucchini bread is a perfect addition to any gathering.


  • 6 tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 2 cups cane sugar (or light brown sugar)
  • ½ cup oil
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 to 2½ cups grated zucchini (~3 medium-sized ones)
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or raisins, optional


1. Grease two loaf pans.

2. Mix together flax seeds and warm water.

3. Add sugar, oil, applesauce, and vanilla; beat well.

4. Add grated zucchini; stir until combined.

5. In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.

6. Add dry mixture to wet and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened and everything is incorporated evenly; some lumps are fine. If adding additional mix-ins, fold them in now. Divide batter between prepared pans.

7. Bake at 350ºF for 50-55 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Let cool a few minutes before slicing.
