Here’s a way to sneak some healthy vegetables into your kids’ diets; grated sweet potato or zucchini can be used in this bread to make it moist and nutritious.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flower
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup orange or apple juice
  • grated zest of an orange or lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated sweet potato or zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With a fork or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles a crumble.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the juice, zest and egg. Pour into the flour mixture and stir just enough to moisten; do not over mix.
  4. Fold in the zucchini and nuts and pour the batter into the loaf pan. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and cool on rack for 15 minutes before serving.
