This easy Zucchini Bread recipe is amazing, it truly is the BEST recipe! Moist and soft bread loaf loaded with fresh zucchini, bananas and chocolate chips! The bread is not overly sweet but sweet enough to satisfy the dessert cravings!
I love this sweet bread recipe. The amazing flavors of banana, zucchini and chocolate chip morsels is phenomenal. You’d never expect the flavors to work so well together. This is a great way to use up overripe bananas or zucchini during zucchini season.
This bread is wonderful to gift neighbors, teachers or loved ones around the holidays.
NOTE: For those wondering if you can taste the zucchini in the bread, the answer is – no! Even your picky eaters will enjoy the bread. It’s a great way to sneak zucchini in. 🙂
