2 cups grated zucchini
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup no-sugar-added applesauce
1/2 cup plain, fat-free greek yogurt*
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of ground nutmeg
1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 loaf pans or 24 muffin cups. Place grated zucchini in a paper towel and wring out extra moisture. Mix together zucchini, sugar, applesauce, and yogurt. Add in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. With a rubber spatula, slowly add in dry mixture, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in almonds. Spoon into prepared pans and bake 40- 50 minutes (for bread) or 20- 25 minutes (for muffins), rotating halfway through baking.
* You can substitute regular plain, fat-free yogurt. Make sure that it does not have added sugars and remember that it will add more grams of carbs.
Makes 12 servings. 2 muffins per serving.
