Healthy Zucchini Bread

The Apple sauce and the Yogurt as well as the Zucchini make this bread moist without all the oil 
Apple sauce also adds the sweetness making for a bread with much less sugar.


1 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder 
1 tsp Cinnamon 
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 Egg
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil 
1/3 Cup Apple Sauce (unsweetened)
2 Tbsp Plain Yogurt
1/2 Cup Sugar 
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup grated (and squeezed) Zucchini 
1/3 Cup Walnut pieces 

Preheat Oven to 325 Spray an 8 Inch Loaf pan with natural Cooking Spray an set aside

In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, oil, apple sauce, yogurt, sugar and vanilla.  Add flour mixture and stir just until combined (Very important!).
Fold in zucchini and walnuts then transfer batter to prepared pan.  Bake in oven till a deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes.
Cool in pan for 30 mins then remove bread from own and continue to cool on rack.
