Vegan Summer Squash Bread

Author Notes: In my ongoing search for baked goods for my son-in-law (who is vegan, will not eat anything made with white flour or any added fats), and faced with a tad too much summer squash, I came up with this. It's based on an old recipe clipped long ago, but eliminating eggs, dairy, and added fats.louisez

Makes: 2 loaves


  • about 2 medium summer squash or zucchini, seeded and grated (about 2 1/2 c.)
  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup golden raisins (optional)
  • 3/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 1/2 6 oz.containers non-dairy yoghurt (I use coconut)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Combine dry ingredients in mixer bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix to thoroughly combine. Add grated squash and raisins, if using.
  2. Pour into 2 greased 9" loaf pans and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven till tests done (about 1 hour). Cool 10 min. in pans, then turn out onto racks to cool. Freezes well.
