"My recipe for zucchini bread doesn't call for apples, but I'm sure you can add them. This weekend I baked up 5 mini loaves for my parents - mom is 81 and just had her 2nd heart attack in 22 years and has been diagnosed diabetic, Dad has been diabetic for a few years now. I totally replaced the oil with unsweetened applesauce and dropped the sugar from 1 1/4 cups to 3/4 cup. It tasted just as good - adding grated apples would make it even sweeter. Using the mini loaves and freezing them gives my parents just enough to eat in a couple of days and they can pull one out of the freezer every couple weeks to a month to have a home baked bread."
