Spiced Carrot-Zucchini Bread

This bread is so good!
Sweet and extremely moist. Plus you can pretend it's good for you since it has veggies in it ;)

Adapted from Hell Yeah It's Vegan!
6 T ground flax seeds whisked into ½ c + 1 T warm water
0.5 c oil
0.5 c applesauce
2 c brown sugar (I used sucanat)
1 t vanilla
2.5 cups grated zucchini and carrots, (I used 1.5 c carrots + 1 c zucchini)
3 c flour ( I used 2 c whole wheat + 1 c whole wheat pastry flour)
1 t salt
1 T baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 T cinnamon
1/4 t cloves
1/4 t allspice
1/2 t ginger
1/2 raisins (optional)
any other mix-ins (chocolate chips, toasted nuts, coconut...)

Preheat oven to 350F
Mix together flax seed mixture, oil, applesauce, sugar, and vanilla.

Stir in grated zucchini and carrots.

In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.
Add dry to wet and stir to incorporate.
If adding additional mix-ins (like chocolate chips, chopped nuts, coconut...), fold them in now.

Spoon batter into 2 greased loaf pans.
Bake for 45-75 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (Mine was 1 hour + 10 minutes).

I only have one loaf pan so I made the remaining batter into muffins!

Muffins only need about 30 minutes to bake.
