Hello, this is Ruthie with What's Cooking with Ruthie and I am SO excited to be here with you all again this month!
I love being a contributor here at Remodelaholic… Thank You for letting me share yummy recipes with you each month.
In our neck of the woods, fall is in the air and the temperatures are beginning to cool down and that means our garden is beginning to come to end. Our zucchini plants, however, are still growing strong… probably like a lot of yours too! So, I thought it would be fun to share a delicious zucchini recipe to give you a fresh idea for how to use some up.
This bread is moist and delicious AND healthy too! I always try to make my recipes as healthy as possible while still keeping all the flavor!
Coconut Yogurt Zucchini Bread
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C coconut spread or oil, melted (or canola oil)
1 C plain non-fat greek yogurt
1 whole egg and 2 egg whites (to reduce fat/cholesterol)
2 tsp vanilla
3 C shredded zucchini, squeezed and drained
2 C shredded sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray with cooking spray 2- 9×5 loaf pans. Set aside. In a mixing bowl combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, white sugar, greek yogurt, coconut spread, eggs, vanilla; mix until combined. Add zucchini, mix until incorporated. Add flour mixture 1 C at a time, mixing with each addition. Add coconut, mix well. Evenly pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes our clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on rack, invert and remove loaves, cool completely. Slice and Serve!
Coconut Yogurt Zucchini Bread is moist and delicious AND tastes even better the second day when the flavors all have chance to enrich and meld a little bit!
