Healthful Zucchini-Walnut Bread

By Lanier Norville

This quick bread recipe is adapted from a Cooking Light favorite of mine that I’ve lightened even further by substituting whole-wheat flour and using applesauce in place of oil. Both are tricks my older, healthier sister taught me when we were young. The bread gets its flavor from the lemon rind, cinnamon and walnuts.

Quick breads like this one are simple-to-make crowd pleasers that are more impressive than they are difficult to make. The recipe makes two loaves, so you can keep one at home and share one at work, or freeze one for later. Try it toasted with peanut butter for breakfast, or have a slice to satisfy your sweet tooth after supper. With just under 200 calories and 5.6 grams of protein, this bread packs a nutritious punch into something that tastes like a treat. It’ll keep your hunger satisfied well into that long OR shift.

3 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons applesauce
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups shredded zucchini (12 ounces)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.

dry ingredients

Combine egg substitute, applesauce, lemon rind, vanilla and egg in a large bowl; add sugar, stirring until combined. Add zucchini; stir until well combined. Add flour mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in walnuts.
Divide batter evenly between 2 (8 x 4-inch) loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.
