Makes two 9×5-inch loaves (12 slices per loaf)This unique bread is made with healthy whole-wheat pastry flour and plenty of fresh zucchini. It has less oil than similar recipes and is packed with flavor from orange zest, cranberries, and pistachios. I always make two loaves because it freezes extremely well; thaw overnight in the refrigerator or for a few hours on the counter. Its a satisfying snack any time of day and especially good when spread with peanut or almond butter.
- Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 . Coat two 9×5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt; whisk to blend. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Fold in nuts and dried cranberries. Stir to combine; do not overmix, or bread will be tough.
- Divide batter into loaf pans and bakeon center rack for 5060 minutes or until golden brown (a wooden tester should come out clean). Let bread cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes; then remove from pans. Cool completely before slicing, ideally 2 hours.
