prep: 30 mins cook: 50 mins additional: 2 hrs total: 2 hrs 80 mins Servings: 20 Yield: 1 -9×13 inch loaf
1 cup unprocessed bran
2 egg whites
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 very ripe banana, mashed
¼ cup canned pumpkin
2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
? cup raw sugar, such as turbinado or demerara
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9×13 inch baking pan.
Stir together the pumpkin, banana, egg, and egg whites in a large bowl. Beat in maple syrup, sugar, and vanilla; the batter should be a bit frothy. Stir in zucchini; set aside.
Mix flour, bran, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice in a separate bowl. Gradually add the flour mixture to the zucchini mixture, stirring just to moisten all ingredients. Over-mixing the batter will make it tough.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
