Place your oven racks so that the tops of the loaves will rise and be in the approximate center of your oven. Preheat to 350°F. Grease the bottoms only of your loaf pans with spray or whatever you choose to use.
Mix zucchini, sugar, applesauce, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. Add in all other ingredients (except nuts, if using). Divide batter evenly between your loaf pans.
Bake approximately 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in the loaf pans.
Loosen sides of loaves from pans (if necessary) using a paring knife. Turn onto wire racks, and cool (top side up) completely before slicing.
Wrap tightly, or place into a gallon size freezer bag, getting out as much air as possible. Stores for 4 days at room temperature and 10 days if refrigerated.
