"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Meredy Wilson


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut oil (softened or melted, can also sub vegetable or canola oil)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Zest of one orange

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan with butter or cooking spray. Note, you can also make this into muffins. Prepare a muffin tin with cooking spray or liners.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
3. In another bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla. Combine wet ingredients with dry. Mixture will be thick and hard to stir.
4. Add in zucchini and carrots and stir until incorporated into batter. It should become more mixable at this point. Add in walnuts, dried cranberries and orange zest and stir to combine.
5. Bake for 50-60 minutes (loaf), 18-22 minutes (muffins), or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Start checking the bread early. Baking times will vary depending on your oven. Let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes and then invert and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
