The Zucchini Project - Classic (no white sugar) Zucchini bread

GORP Zucchini Project

HELLLPP! THE ZUCCHINI IS OVERTAKING THE GARDEN!! Seriously though, what on earth do we do with all of these Zucchinis?? Start looking on Pinterest for recipes, I guess!

DISCLAIMER: While some advertisers would encourage me  to tell you to eat GORP bars 5 times per day, that's not what we believe. We believe in a well rounded and balanced diet of good, whole, nutritious, homemade food. GORP will fit in where you need it. Also, I am not a professional chef.

That being said, we have a boat load of zucchini to take care of over here, so let us share some recipes with you! But first...

Recipe of the day:

Classic Zucchini Bread

Classic Zucchini Bread with a healthier twist.


1/2 cup Oil (I used vegetable)
3/4 cup Honey (I used locally made)
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup grated apple
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg


1. Preheat your oven to 350 F and prepare 1 regular loaf pan with baking spray or butter and dust it with flour for easy removal.

2. Grate! (if you haven't already - it's nice to throw your zucchinis through a food processor to grate it, then you can save it in little 2 cup baggies for easy use)

3. Beat the oil, honey, egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl. (I actually forgot the egg in my first batch and it was delicious - so if you want to skip the egg, you totally can!)

Then stir in the grated apple and zucchini.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

5. Combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix well.

6. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan. If you're feeling extra healthy, add in some chia!! I put in a table spoon or 2.


7. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

8. Lick the bowl clean. Pretty much the best part...


9. Pull out of the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes, then turn out on a rack to cool or eat it warm!!

Not every “zig” in the face of a “zag” has worked out for me, (I’ve made some very expensive mistakes), but I agree with the idea that if you follow the MASSES sometimes the “M” is silent! And that brings you further away from YOU.
