The other day we were in the office talking about cooking with Chuice and I decided to test some recipes. I immediately thought about zucchini bread.
I used to bake zucchini breads all the time but haven't in a while, so it would be a good opportunity for me to practice my skills and try a new recipe.
I googled a few zucchini bread recipes and found one that I thought it was close to what I was looking for. I made some changes to make it nutrient rich, no fat added and low sugar added and voilà!
In my opinion, baking is like chemistry, we need to find the right amount of ingredients to get the results we are looking for and sometimes (or should I say most of the time?) we have to try a few times before we get it right. I was lucky and got it delicious on the first attempt.
Let us know how you liked it or what changes you made to the recipe by using #zucchinichuice
Stay tuned for the next recipe in the coming weeks.
Chuice Zucchini Bread
1 cup green Chuice (red should work fine also)
1/4 cup sugar
2 t vanilla
2 cups white whole wheat flour (plus more if needed)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 T cinnamon
2 c shredded zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup crushed pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I used 3 small bread loaves with cooking spray (other sizes work too, just adjust the baking time).
Beat eggs, Chuice, sugar, and vanilla until it gets foamy. Add baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and flour to eggs. Consistency should be thick- not runny- so add more flour if necessary.
Stir in the shredded zucchini and chocolate chips. then pour half of the mixture into each pan. I added a handful of chips on top of each loaf.
Bake about 30-35 min until it passes the clean toothpick test.
