At a time when zucchini and blueberries are abundant in many parts of the country, this is a healthy and easy recipe to create muffins or bread. Once baked, they can be frozen and defrosted the same day, once completely cool.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups zucchini – grated
1 cup very ripe bananas – crushed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup blueberries – rinse well and dry with a paper towel
1/4 cup wheat germ
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray 9″ bread pan with Pam Cooking Spray or use paper inserts in muffin tins.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini, bananas, and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients to wet and stir well.
Gently fold in blueberries.
