It might be labor day but Meatless Monday never takes a day off! I love all the fall pumpkin recipes but I am not ready to embrace them quite yet given that it is still 90 degrees in the DC area. I am excited about apples though! Given that the Jewish holidays are starting next week I thought it was the perfect time to whip up an apple honey zucchini bread to share with you. Please join Tina and I for Meatless Monday.
I really enjoy cooking seasonally and apples and zucchini are perfect right now and pretty inexpensive. In the Jewish tradition, honey signifies a “sweet new year”. With the start of school and the start of a new season, it seems the perfect time to wish you all a sweet new year.
What I really love about this recipe is that it has no added white sugar. I have used a small amount of honey and the sweetness of the apples to provide just the right amount of goodness. I tried making this with other flours and didn’t get the consistency I was looking for so kept this recipe with a white flour. Feel free to experiment with your favorite flour. I think it came out fabulous hope you enjoy! It’s perfect for breakfast or paired with your afternoon coffee.
