  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg whites

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup grated peeled apples

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy. Add the oil, applesauce, sugars and vanilla; beat until blended. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the zucchini, apples and pecans.
