Vegan Zucchini Bread

I had a zucchini that I knew was going to start to go bad if I didn’t use it and with Thanksgiving tomorrow (and a ton of leftovers in my future) I didn’t want to see it go to waste.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons flax seeds
½ cup warm water
2 cups light brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins

Instructions

Grease two loaf pans.

Mix together flax seeds and warm water.

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

Add grated zucchini; stir til combined.

In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.

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.

Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of loaf comes out clean.

Let cool a few minutes before slicing.

Now I have 2 hostess gifts when I visit family tomorrow!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Peace, Love, Vegan

About Sheenagh Caridi

I am 28 years old & I've decided to start to live a healthier life. It's obvious that I am not getting any younger & I want to make sure I am at my healthiest for when I get married & start to have children. I've been a vegetarian for 14 years, but have not made the best decisions, cheese, pasta & bread is an awful diet to survive on. I work crazy work hours, & find it impossible to sleep, let alone make positive food choices. I've recently decided to be completely vegan, not only does animal cruelty hurt my soul, but the effects of a vegan lifestyle help our earth & hugely help our bodies. It comes down to making an effort to getting up & making everything you consume. We all need to learn how to fuel our bodies with the right foods. You only have one life & one body, make it all ridiculously amazing. Peace, Love, Vegan
