Hell Yeah It's Vegan Zucchini Bread WITHOUT the oil!

  • 6 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 c warm water
  • 2 c turbinado sugar (or light brown sugar)
  • 1/2 c oil (I omited the oil completely and doubled the apple sauce)
  • 1/2 c applesauce (I used 1 C. in place of oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 to 2 1/2 c grated zucchini (~3 medium-sized ones)
  • 2 c all-purpose flour (I used 3 C. of Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)
  • 1 c whole wheat flour (3 C. instead of 1)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 c chocolate chips or raisins, optional

Add the Flax to the warm water and let it sit.  While waiting for it to thicken add your sugar, oil if your using it, applesauce and vanilla in a separate bowl and mix it together then add the flax mixture in.  Add the grated zucchini and mix together.  

In another separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Slowly add to the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together completely.

grease your pan with coconut oil, add sugar to coat it and then fill your loaf pans half way.  

Bake at 350 degree's for 50 minutes. Let it cool and eat OR wrap it in parchment paper then put it in a freezer bag until you need it. It's just as good!
