  • 1 3/4 cups whole white wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil or melted and cooled butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups coarsely grated zucchini drained of excess moisture
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple drained well


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
  • Grate the zucchini and then place in kitchen towel or cheesecloth to ring out any excess moisture.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, mix together eggs, honey, oil, applesauce, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the zucchini and pineapple.
  • Divide batter between the loaf pans and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The time varies, depending on your oven.
  • Cool in pans for 10 minutes and then remove from pan to cool completely.
  • Store in the cooled bread in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
