Ingredients

  • cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil or other flavorless oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • cups grated zucchini
  • cups grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Butter and flour two 8x5 loaf pans and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Into a large bowl, sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set this bowl aside for a moment.
  • In a medium bowl combine the sugar, eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla extract. Whisk these ingredients together until combined. Add in the zucchini, carrot and chopped pecans and use a spatula to mix these in.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and use the spatula to mix until just combined.
  • Divide the batter among the two prepared pans and sprinkle both with half a tablespoon of whole flax seed.
  • Slide the pans into your preheated oven and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick that has been inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow the bread to cool completely before running a knife along the side and inverting.
  • Slice and serve!

Notes

I like to serve this warm with a thin smear of salted butter.
