I love zucchini bread but I hate all the oil and sugar you have to put in. I developed this recipe so it is good for you and it is still sweet and moist. My kids love this recipe. I make one loaf and mini muffins for them. It is really good with pineapple or orange jam. I know you guys will love it too.

How to Make Good For You Zucchini and Apple Bread!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare your loaf pans.
    Start shredding your zucchini and apple. Don't drain the zucchini set aside. Mix in apple sauce, eggs, oil, vanilla extract, honey and sugar and set mixture aside.
  2. Sift flour with salt, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Fold in into zucchini mixture with wooden spoon or mixer until well combined. Divide batter into 2 loaf pans. Cook for 50-60 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. My oven takes about 50 minutes but every oven is different.
  3. Take out of oven and let it cool in pan for 10 minutes. Take out of pan and let the loafs cool on a wire rack or cutting board for 20 minutes. Start slicing and enjoy with butter or jam if desired or just by itself is really good.
