Zucchini Oat Bread

If it's August, it must be zucchini time.

1.5 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
0.5 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
0.75 tsp salt
0.5 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
1 cup applesauce
0.25 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
0.75 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350. Grease bread pans. Note: I make 5 mini loaves with this recipe.

Combine flours, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside.

Beat eggs until foamy. Add sugar, applesauce, butter and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating on low speed just until combined.

Stir in zucchini, nuts and raisins.

Spoon into prepared pans. Bake 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean.

Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pans. Cool completely on rack. Wrap and store several hours before slicing.
