Zucchini Bread

This is our favorite Zucchini Bread.  The zucchini makes it extra moist, plus it’s a good way to use up your abundant crop.  It’s great for breakfast in the summer, and its a bread the whole family will enjoy!  Also it freezes really well for later.

3 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil or olive oil
3/4 cup butter
1 1/3 cup sucanat, rapadura, or brown sugar
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup shredded apple with the skin
