Zuccini Bread

My mom is making Zuccini Bread. It is soo good, but I noticed what my mom puts in it, a fair amount of sugar and adatives. I am taking Thermobond / Cheaters Delight we call it 30 minutes before soo I don't absorb as much of the saturated fat.
Any suggestions on a good recipe makeover for Zuccini Bread?

Zucchini Bread

2 serving(s) butter-flavor cooking spray
2 cup(s) whole wheat flour
2/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 tsp table salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
3 large egg white(s)
1 large egg(s)
1 cup(s) sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup(s) canola oil
2/3 cup(s) unsweetened applesauce
2 cup(s) zucchini, peeled, grated, and drained*
1/2 cup(s) chopped walnuts
1/2 cup(s) raisins, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat two 8- X 4-inch loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, in a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add egg, sugar, vanilla extract, oil and applesauce, and beat until thoroughly combined; beat in zucchini.

Add sifted ingredients to egg mixture and mix well; fold in nuts and raisins. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake in middle of oven until a toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes. Slice each bread into 10 pieces and serve warm or at room temperature. Yields 1 slice per serving.

Just take the same recipe and sub applesauce for the oil. Also - you can used a mashed overripe banana for a lot of the sugar.

Im in for the simple (applesauce for oil) but it looks like TJ has kicked my simple tip in the butt.

Im printing hers :)

Technology really is an inescapable aspect of our daily lives, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.
