Zucchini & Crushed Pineapple Bread

Sarah B.


I have always loved zucchini bread, I love it even more now since I have found this recipe! Using the applesauce in place of the oil gives the bread more depth and paired with the zucchini and the crushed pineapple the trio pairs well with keeping the bread super moist. It is so delicious, and the fact that it is super healthy makes you feel less guilty as your eating your second (or third) piece!
