  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Mix flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and allspice together in a bowl. Beat sugar, applesauce, and eggs together in a separate bowl; mix into the flour mixture until batter is just combined. Fold zucchini and carrots into batter. Divide batter between the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaves comes out clean, about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This is a very forgiving bread. Feel free to experiment with nuts and/or raisins.
  • You could also substitute Splenda® for some or all of the sugar or Egg Beaters® for the whole eggs if you are looking for something even lighter!
