  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 3/4 cup raisins, dried cranberries, or nuts, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In medium size mixing bowl using a wooden spoon, stir together sugar, applesauce or banana, zucchini, and soy flour/water combination. In separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together and combine with the sugar - applesauce mixture. Pour into oiled or greased loaf pan. Bake 45-55 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
