In the oven.

3 Tbsp Flax Meal

9 Tbsp water

1 c. canola oil

2 c. sugar

2 c. grated unpeeled zucchini (about one large)

3 tsp vanilla

Out of the oven!

1 1/2 c. white flour

1 1/2 c. wheat flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

3 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 c. nuts, chopped

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flax meal and water and set aside to let stand for at least 2 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients.
  3. Add nuts.
  4. To the flax meal, add oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla.  Mix lightly, but well.
  5. Add this mixture to the sifted ingredients, and mix until just blended.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees fahrenheit (163 celsius) for 1 hour in 2 greased and floured loaf pans.

Personal notes:

*The original recipe just called for 3 cups of plain flour, so you can certainly use that if you don’t have any whole wheat.

* I used walnuts because that’s what I had on hand.  I’m a big fan of using whatever you have on hand!

*I think if I make this recipe again, I’ll go for one loaf with a longer bake time.  These two loaves just seem a little short to me.
