Healthier Zucchini Bread

I have never made Zucchini Bread in my life... nor had i ever had it till i moved to the states!
But i did realise that it can be very unhealthy for you even though its made of zucchini!
I browsed threw a few recipes and decided on one that didnt have "as" much sugar in it and as per usual i couldnt follow the recipe.... (; BUT thats ok cuz it turned out delish either way!
I am going to post the version i made but if ud rather the recipe i hlf followed by all means email me and i will send it to you!
~!Healthier Version of Zucchini Bread!~
What you will need;
3 cups of grated squash/zucchini
1 and a hlf cups of apple sauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup of canola oil
3 smallish eggs
3 teaspoons of vanilla
1/2 to 1 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet ou want it!)
2 cups of wheat flour
1 cup of white flour
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
How to throw it together;
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottoms only of 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray.
2. In large bowl, mix zucchini, applesauce, oil, egg product, vanilla and sugar until well blended. Stir in all remaining ingredients except walnuts until well blended. Stir in walnuts. Spoon batter evenly into pans.
3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

The guys really enjoyed this! I made this last night and they polished of one whole loaf minus 3 slices i sent over to Angies!
Apparently its REAL good with low fat cream cheese i was just told on the phone :) by Hubby!
