Coconut Zucchini Mini Loaves


I really need to check on the zucchini in the garden more often...I didn't realize I had ripe goodies waiting for me out there.  These little loaves hit the spot.  They demanded coconut....because everything is better with coconut of course.  Very little effort goes into this recipe.  The only thing that really take a bit of time is grating the zucchini.


Coconut Zucchini Mini Loaves

3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 egg
1 cup unpeeled, grated zucchini
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp lemon peel
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Mix together egg, oil, yogurt, coconut, sugar, and zucchini.  Blend in both flours, baking soda, salt, lemon, peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg until just mixed.  Pour into mini loaf pans or muffin pan and bake at 350 for 18 to 25 minutes.  Cool on rack.
