Zucchini Bread

This recipe answers all of my typical zucchini bread gripes.

Too sweet? Nope.

Too oily? Nope.

Too light on veggies? Nope. There are even carrots in the mix!

I love that the moisture comes primarily from the veggies instead of oil. And some sweetness comes straight from the carrots. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not trying to pitch this as the next diet secret but I do love it more than the rest.

It’ll be thick but the moisture from the veggies will make it more like a batter.

Not pretty but it’ll smell amazing in the oven and be tasty after that!

  1. Yes I am, but I’m also on team chocolate chip when it comes to zucchini bread – but not team chocolate chips and raisins…
