Recipe 1: Volumized Zucchini Bread


My wife and I absolutely love this recipe for a reduced carb, calorie zucchini bread. It is awesome!


Reduced calorie “volumized” recipe
Shugart's Volumized Zucchini Bread

By Chris Shugart on http://www.t-nation.com/


3 1/4 cups whole wheat or whole grain flour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 cups Splenda

1 cup unsweetened apple sauce

3/4 cup egg whites

1/3 cup water

4 cups grated zucchini (Note how I doubled this, adding nutrition and "bulk" but hardly any calories.)

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 cup chopped walnuts



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a big bowl, combine whole wheat flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon, and Splenda.
In a separate bowl, combine apple sauce, egg whites, water, zucchini, and lemon juice.
Mix wet ingredients into dry, add walnuts and fold in, or add walnuts to the top after pouring into loaf pans (pat down into dough, they will stay better this way). Bake in two standard loaf pans, sprayed with nonstick spray, for one hour or until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke the loaf.
