- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9-inch bread pan.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, applesauce, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a fork.
- In a smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- Stir in the dry ingredients to combine into a sticky dough. Gently stir in zucchini. Be careful not to overmix: just stir until the dough comes together.
