Recipe: Clean Eating Banana Zucchini Bread

I've had to take a bit of a hiatus in posting due to some health issues, but I'm going to try to get back into regular posts, especially considering SO many people have asked me about eating clean lately!

So here's a recipe to start! Made two loaves and 24 muffins today out of a double batch. They. Are. AWESOME! Enjoy!

3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp Sea Salt
4 eggs (or 2 eggs and 3 egg whites if you prefer)
2 Cups Evaporated Cane Juice (i.e. "Clean" Sugar)
1 Cup Canola Oil
1/2 Tbsp. Vanilla
3 Ripe Bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 Cups Zucchini, unpeeled and shredded

* In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt. Set aside.

* Beat eggs/whites. Blend in Evaporated Cane Juice, oil, and vanilla. Add bananas and mix well. Stir into flour mixture until well-mixed. Gently fold in zucchini.

* Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks and cool completely. Yields: 2 loaves. (For muffins, pour into 24 greased muffin cups and bake approximately 25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.)
