  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 4 oz
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 1/2 cups coarsely grated zucchini from about 1zucchini
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray two 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pans with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper, leaving a generous overhang on the long sides. Spread walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until slightly darkened and fragrant, 8–10 minutes; let cool, then coarsely chop. Whisk eggs, oil, granulated sugar, applesauce, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Whisk flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and nutmeg in another large bowl just to combine. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add egg mixture and slowly incorporate dry ingredients with a fork (batter will look dry). Fold in zucchini, walnuts and 1 cup oats. Divide batter evenly in the prepared pans. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup oats over batter in both pans and bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Transfer pans to a wire rack and let bread cool 30 minutes; turn out bread onto wire racks and let cool comple
