A healthy and delicious way to use up that zucchini overflowing in your garden! This recipe combines whole wheat flour with nuts, zucchini, and pineapple. Great for hearty breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack. (Also a great sneaky way to get kids to eat their veggies.)
1. Combine all purpose and whole wheat flours, salt, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. (You can use 3 cups all-purpose flour if you don’t have any whole wheat, but I like the texture and “goodness” it adds to this bread.)
2. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil, and vanilla.
3. Grate zucchini and place in a large bowl. This should take 1 1/2 or 2 zucchinis.
4. Add in the can of pineapple, including the juice. Then mix in the sugar, followed by the egg mixture. (It’s supposed to be soupy, don’t worry!)
5. Stir in the flour mixture and pecans.
6. Spoon batter into muffin tins that have been cooking sprayed and coated with flour.
7. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.
You can also use this recipe for bread. It will make 2 loaves. Those will bake at 350 F as well for 50 minutes.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
