Number of Servings: 40


    1.5 c All-Purpose Flour
    1.5 c Whole Wheat Flour
    2 c White Granulated Sugar
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    1/4 tsp Baking Powder
    3 tsp Ground Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
    1/2 c Canola Oil
    3/4 c Sweetened Applesauce
    3 Large eggs
    2 tsp Vanilla Extract

    Streusel Topping
    1/2 c Packed Brown Sugar
    1/2 c All-Purpose Flour
    1/2 Unsalted Butter
    1 tsp Ground Cinnamon


Preheat oven to 325 and place prepared 1lb mini loaf pans evenly on a cookie sheet to allow for adequate air-flow around pans.

Combine in a large mixing bowl: wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Using a flour sifter mix together dry ingredients (wheat flour can cause bread to become dense, throrough sifting allows for more air in the flour giving the bread a lighter texture).

In mixing bowl beat eggs until light and frothy. Mix in oil, applesauce, vanilla & white sugar until it has a creamy texture. Stir in zucchini. Pour into 4 prepared 1lb mini bread loaf pans.

Streusel Topping
Combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut butter into mixture. Top each mini loaf with streusel topping.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 20 min.

Makes 40 1.5oz servings or 4 1lb mini loaves approximately 15oz/ loaf.

Mini loaves are great for gifts and storing! These can be made as muffins or full loaves too.
