Mom's Super-healthy Zucchini Bread

This loaf contains less sugar than most sweet breads, whole grain flour, and far less fat. It is a great bread to have handy for quick, healthy snacks or mid-day energy boosts.
Yield: 1 loaf

2 cups unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup chopped pecans
1 large egg + 1 egg white
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup skim milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated fresh zucchini

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees with the rock in the center of the oven.

Combine sugar, milk, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla. Add the grated zucchini and mix well.

Whisk together all dry ingredients.

Add moist ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.

Pour into a lightly greased 9x5 loaf pan.

Bake for one hour. Cool in pan before turning out.
