Looking for that holiday treat that is full of flavor, but not full of calories, sugar, and fat? Than this is the recipe for you! I found this recipe on ambitiouskitchen.com and had to try it - the link to the actual recipe is posted below where you can find the nutrition informaiton. This is perfect to take to holiday parties when you think you might want something sweet, but you don't want to completely blow your calories! And more than likely, someone else at the party will apreciate it too!
This was super easy to make, and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen!
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour - I used whole wheat
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of cloves
pinch of ginger
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed of excess moisture
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips - I used Dark Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
In a separate large bowl combine pumpkin, zucchini, honey, oil, egg, and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Whisk in almond milk. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips, reserving a few for sprinkling on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10-15 minutes, then remove bread from pan and transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
