Healthy Morning Zucchini Bread is a wake-up-to-a-new day, soft quick bread that’s actually healthy too. Filled with whole grains, packed with veggies and mildly sweet.



2/3 cup oil, plus more for the pan
11/3 cups whole-wheat flour
23 zucchini, grated (about 2 cups)
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup oats, plus more for topping


Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 8 1/2- by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with some oil, sprinkle with flour and tap to distribute evenly.

In a large bowl, combine the sugars, eggs, and oil; whisk until smooth.  Using a rubber spatula, stir in the zucchini and carrots. Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Then add the flour, raisins, and oats. Stir to combine until you no longer see any flour. Pour the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle oats on top.

Bake for about 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 15 to 20 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Once the bread is cool, slice and serve.
