Zuchhini Bread-0122

Healthy Zucchini bread with apples, oats and flax makes a hearty snack or breakfast.  My kids are not really fond of zucchini but they love my zucchini bread! This bread is loaded with zucchini: 3 cups shredded zucchini and one cup shredded apple! You do the math. All this in one loaf of bread giving them a whopping serving of veggies and fruit per slice. My Sunday supper team is doing a ” Back to school” theme and are all coming up with easy snacks and foods that are kid friendly and fuel for their brains. I decided to make my zucchini bread since it doubles as both a snack and a quick breakfast item. The perfect pick me up for busy kids on the go! The fact  that it’s loaded with veggies is just the icing on the cake ..oops I meant bread :)! The apples sweeten the bread, zucchini  gives it moisture and the flax gives it a nice roasted flavor. I used a mix of oats and rice flour to make a gluten free mix but you can use any ready-made gluten free mix as well. If you’re not crazy about making this gluten free, just use whole grain flour. I love how you can sneak so much veggie into this loaf of apple zucchini bread! My husband who is not usually too fond of breads in general, actually wanted a second slice so I guess it must have been good!
