Carolyn's Zucchini Oatmeal Carrot Walnut Bread

  I like making my own recipes and sharing them with others!  This is my latest creation during zucchini season!  It's good for people who are looking to cut calories and eat healthy.

1 cup whole wheat flour           1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt                              1/2 cup agave nectar
1/4 tsp. baking soda                 1/4 cup applesauce
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon          1/2 cup grated zucchini
1 egg from egg beaters              1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup chopped walnuts           1/2 cup oatmeal (I use the flavored ones... maple brown sugar!)


1,  Olive Oil Spray and whole wheat flour one 8 x 4 loaf pan.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2.  Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda and cinnamon together in a bowl.
3.  Beat egg, oil, vanilla and brown sugar and nectar together in a large bowl.  Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well.  Stir in applesauce, zucchini, oatmeal, carrot and nuts until well combined.  Pour batter into prepared pan.
4.  Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on rack
for 20 minutes.  Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.   Enjoy eating!
