Ingredients

NON STICK SPRAY

1 c
zucchini, finely grated (about one medium zucchini)
1 c
green apple, finely grated (about 2 small apples)
1 1/4 c
light brown sugar
1 c
canola oil
3 large
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
3 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
salt
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
nutmeg
1/2 tsp
all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
chopped pecans (or any nut you like) optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 2 (4 1/2 by 8 1/2-inch) loaf pans with nonstick spray. Line the pans with parchment paper and spray the paper.
2
Combine the zucchini, apple, brown sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla extract in a large bowl and stir to combine.
3
In another bowl combine 3 cups flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg to the bowl and mix well.
4
In a small bowl toss the nuts with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon flour to coat and prevent them from sinking. Gently stir in the nuts. *I only added about 1/2 cup of nuts. I used pecans but you can use any nut you like and add as much as you like.*
5
Divide the batter between the 2 loaf pans. Bake until a toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle of each loaf comes out clean, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the bread from the pans and cool on a wire rack.
