Today I am excited to be guest blogging over at Diethood! DIETHOOD! I just love Kate’s blog and I know you will too. Don’t let the name of her blog fool you. Kate isn’t afraid of a little sugar and butter. However I thought I would be a good girl and bring her readers my favorite summer quick bread.

This bread is every bit as tasty as it is gorgeous. I just know your family will love it. A few years ago in my kitchen this bread started out entitled “Zucchini Bread.” Many mark-ups and years later it reads “Fruit and Veggie Bread.” So come and join me over at Diethood!

Yield: 6 mini loaves

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 25 mins

Packed with zucchini, apples, and carrots, this Fruit and Veggie Bread bakes up quickly and is perfect for the end of summer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ½ cups wheat flour
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup applesauce (or 1 apple cored and grated, with skin)
  • 2 cup zucchini, grated and drained
  • 1 cup carrot, grated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer combine all of the dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients one at a time and mix until well-incorporated.
  3. Fill 6 mini loaf pans about 2/3 full and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Notes:

  • You can omit the wheat flour and use 3c all-purpose flour
  • You can omit the wheat germ
  • You can use 1 cup canola or vegetable oil instead of applesauce
  • You can also make 2 large loafs (bake about 1 hour) or 24 muffins (bake about 15 minutes)

    Am I awful when I look at the first photo and think, "oh man, I would love to put some butter or jam on those slices of bread!" LOL. Completely defeats the purpose of healthy bread, hahaha. The bread and loaves look amazing though and I think fruit and veggie breads are genius. Just the other day I had some cranberry pumpkin seed baguette and it was delightful all on its own.

    Just checked out the recipe and it looks great! I have bookmarked it and will try it with all the huge zucchinis my garden is producing these days! My kids love this kind of bread toasted and then topped with cream cheese. Great breakfast for school mornings!

    I love how you wrap the bread! SO cute and creative. I won't be feeling guilty as many slices as I eat if the ingredients are healthy… I know that's not your intention but I just know I will enjoy this very much. I love the pictures and what a wonderful guest post!
