Apple Flax Zucchini Bread #GlutenFree #SundaySupper

 

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!

Plenty of fiber in this gluten free zucchini bread thanks to the oats ,zucchini, apple and flax. Flax also adds a healthy dose of omega 3 and healthy fat! Oats are heart healthy ! All in all a bread brimming with nutrition and flavor!

Vegan option: Skip the eggs and use flax eggs instead.

    Hello….Can you help me??? I make a zucchini walnut bread with whole wheat flour, applesauce (instead of oil) and the recipe calls for 3 eggs…Last night I used a pre-ground flaxseed and water egg. Cooking it an extra 30 mins and it still was wet mush inside. All 4 loaves are in the garbage. Can you tell me what I did wrong??? I love this recipe (and so does everyone else) and I’m trying to not use eggs anymore.

    Thanks!!!
