Low fat zucchini bread

Well, since I made my regular recipe for Zucchini bread loaded with fat and sugar {yum} I thought I better make some lower cal for me. I decided to try this recipe from Healthy Kitchen...I modified it slightly.

It's GOOD! It really satisfied me and was truly sweet enough without all the added sugar. The texture was good and the raisins were a nice addition. I added a few nuts too. It makes two 8"x 4" loaves, 8 slices each, 169 cal. .o8 fat. {without the nuts}

Low Fat Zucchini Bread

3 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 egg plus 2 egg whites

1 c. unsweetened applesauce

1 c. sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 c. shredded zucchini

1/2 c. raisins

1/4 c. chopped walnuts

Sift dry ingredients and set aside. Beat egg whites and egg, vanilla, and sugar. Add to dry and mix well. Stir in zucchini, raisins, and nuts. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 40-60 minutes.

Our zucchinis should be coming into season within a couple of weeks (yes... we got a very late start on our garden this year) and I always end up making several loaves of zucchini bread. Great to have a lowfat recipe to try.
