Low Carb Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

We’re still doing the low-carb healthy living.

I do go off it occasionally.

Having a well-stocked pantry, I am still going through our pastas and such.

But just occasionally…

I have found wonderful items to use in my cooking. I am learning more about low carb cooking and baking.

For instance, I just adore Carbquik.

And, I found coconut sugar…another wonderful item.

I am not into the low-calorie sweeteners. I have heard bad things about ingredients like Aspartame, so I avoid them.

What a wonderful find was the coconut sugar. It’s delicious and sweet.

It substitutes at a 1:1 ratio.

That means, you use coconut sugar just like you would real sugar in your recipes.

Let’s make some delicious fall yumminess – Low Carb Pumpkin Zucchini Bread.

This delicious bread uses some healthy zucchini.

Hidden veggies! Very sneaky!

You need one cup of shredded zucchini. I take my ‘zukes, cut off the tip and chop them in the food processor.

You also need 1 cup pumpkin. Use canned pumpkin…NOT pie filling.

To that, add 2 cups of coconut sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 1/2 cup of applesauce, and 1/2 cup of melted butter.

Mix that well. I like a whisk for that part. I then added in 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, I like to mix these in first so I can tell they are incorporated. I also added 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice.

Next, I added 4-1/2 cups of Carbquik. This is a substitute for my flour.  I managed to stir that in with a whisk, you may want to switch to a spoon.

Optional – 1 cup chopped pecans.

Spray two large bread pans with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 70-80 minutes. This makes a super-dense, moist bread.

It has wonderful flavor for a low-carb bread. You won’t even miss the sugar or carbs!
