The spices give it great flavor and the apple and zucchini lend a good moistness.

Blendtec vs Vitamix Review

My daughter and husband enjoyed them.

They freeze well.”

“Very easy to make. Loved that the blender was able to chop up all the fruit and veggies for the bread for me.

That cut down on time a lot! 

My second batch I also made it with pecans instead of walnuts and I liked it more than walnuts.”

“I did sub honey for the sunacat. Mostly because I had honey, but also because I figured I’d have to go to a healthfood store to get sunacat and the nearest one is 30+min away. 

Also, I only have one bread pan, so I made a larger loaf and 6 extra-large muffins.

I think it makes better muffins.”

“Smells amazing! Very moist and sweet.

Tastes great! Husband likes it and my mom likes it.

Didn’t try it on anyone else.

I like the fact that it is a healthier indulgence.”

HEALTH BENEFITS OF SUCANAT
Sucanat is an alternative sweetener made by crushing stems of sugar cane, extracting the plant’s juice, and then turning the juice in a vacuum tunnel at high temperature to evaporate the water content.

It is then milled to a powder retaining the same vitamin and mineral content as the original juice.

Most brands of evaporated cane sugar are cooked to some extent but sucanat is the only truly raw cane sugar product.

Both sucanat and evaporated cane products are healthier than refined sugar, which is further treated with lime or phosphoric acids, filtered, deodorized and bleached so that all nutrients are removed as molasses and only the simple sucrose remains.

Also, both conventionally refined and alternative cane sugars contain about 570 calories per cup and are nutrient empty.

In contrast, one cup of whole raw sugar contains 1 g of protein, 1,125 mg of potassium, 1,600 IU of vitamin A, 49.5 mg of vitamin C, 165 mg of calcium, 6.5 mg of iron, 0.2 mg of niacin and 48 mg of phosphorus.
