Healthy Zucchini Bread

I should do more baking. I used to bake all the time.

My brother gave me some beautiful little round zucchinis 
so I decided to make zucchini bread.

I doctored up a basic zucchini recipe to make it a little 
more healthy and to call it my own.

Zucchini Bread

2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. applesauce
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. oats
2  t. vanilla
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
2 c. shredded zucchini... remove the seeds!
1/2 c. sunflower seeds

Cream together the sugar, eggs, oil, 
applesauce and vanilla.  

Mix dry ingredients together, add to the creamed mixture and beat. (I used the electric mixer) 

Add grated zucchini. 

Stir in nuts

Pour into two greased and floured loaf pans
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
It is so nice and moist! 
The kids love it too!

I also made the pedestal dish by gluing a very cool 
French plate to the top of a candlestick with E6000.  
My dome fit perfectly!
