This bread is so moist from the apple sauce and zucchini. It’s perfect for a snack on the go or to bring over to a friends house as a gift. We actually got this idea from a friend and co-worker of ours at the pharmacy, Karen. She brought in the most delicious Zucchini loaf the other day. Thank you Karen! It’s got the spices for fall and the convenience of summer all wrapped into one tasty pan.
