Fantastic Fruit and Veggie Bread

A healthy, moist and delicious snack.

This is my first original recipe and it is fantastic, if I do say so myself 😉 My family loves to eat this loaf for breakfast, for dessert and for a healthy snack any time of day.

This recipe is chock full of veggies (zucchini and carrot) and fruit (apples and blueberries). Plus, you leave the peel on both the zucchini and the apples, so that you get all of the nutrients and fiber out of them. It also uses the healthiest of fats — olive oil. Your skin will love you for it. Furthermore, there is only half a cup of sugar in the whole loaf, so you can feel good about feeding it to the kids in your life.

Last but not least, this recipe is incredibly versatile. You can use any kind of apples and carrots or even berries for that matter. My recipe tester used frozen mixed berries instead of just blueberries, she axed most of the cinnamon and she had mostly zucchini as her veg. This obviously altered the taste but it still turned out fab! You can use whatever you have to work with in the kitchen and make any adjustments that you would like to based on your flavour preferences.
