Healthy-er Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread is so misleading. Even though it's packed with veggies, it's always too oily and overly sweet. So, I decided to tone it down a bit without messing up what everyone loves about Zucchini Bread! It's just as tasty and has an even better texture due to the oats.  Don't feel bad when you've already made four loaves in one week... like I did!

And it definitely helped get rid of my over abundance of zucchini from my garden!

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups grated zucchini, green or yellow
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats

Beat eggs until foamy in a large mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix completely together. Put batter into two greased  9 x 5" loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
