No Sugar Added Zucchini Bread

I made Sugar Free Zucchini Bread the other day and it was not quite sweet enough. I think I will try it again with some more ripe bananas some time. In the meantime, here is my second attempt to make a quick bread with no added sugar.


  • 1 1/2 cup raisins, divided
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 325ยบ. Grease an 8"x8" baking pan. Set aside. 
  2. In a small pan, bring apple cider to a boil. Remove from heat, add 1 cup raisins and stir. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Place in blender and puree. Pour pureed raisins into a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla. 
  3. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small pan. Remove from heat and add remaining 1/2 cup raisins. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain.
  4. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and cardamom together in a medium bowl. Add dry ingredients and to wet mix until just incorporated.
  5. Stir in zucchini, carrots, walnuts and remaining raisins.
  6. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and finish cooling to room temperature.
