3 cups shredded zucchini

2 cups white whole wheat flour

1 cup all purpose flour

1 Tbsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp allspice

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray two 9×5 loaf pans, and set aside.
  2. Shred or grate zucchini and place on a towel to absorb excess liquid. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, allspice. Lightly mix and set aside.
  4. Squeeze the excess liquid from the shredded zucchini using a towel. Place zucchini in a separate large mixing bowl. Then, combine eggs, brown sugar, granulated sugar, applesauce, olive oil, and vanilla extract with the zucchini, and stir to combine.
  5. Starting with 1/3 of the mixture, add the zucchini mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients, and gently mix. Repeat again twice more with another 1/3 of the zucchini mixture, mixing gently each time.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared 9×5 loaf pans.
  7. Bake at 350F for 50-55 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  8. Cool in pans at least 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Cool before serving.
