Zucchini Bread-

I love this sweet loaf 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 loaf 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. 🙂

    This recipe is great! I tweaked it by peeling the zucchini though, so my kids wouldn’t see the green in the bread. I also added a scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder and used 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of 1 cup sugar. Spelt flour instead of regular flour. Thanks!

      I just love the tweaks you make, Lainey. Sounds delicious, thanks so much for sharing and visiting our online home. 🙂

    Hello and thank you for the recipe. I have just made it and its in the oven now.

    I am not an experienced baker but thought I would tell you that it would have been helpful if you could include the # of bananas, type of oil and size of pan. I used two bananas and vegetable oil and a glass baking dish. I hope I guessed right:)

    It smells great and I guess I will find out in ten minutes.

    Thank you,

      Hi there Graeme,
      Oh no, for some reason my bananas didn’t transfer over to the print version. I did have it up in the post. Thanks for catching that, added the extra details on everything else as well. I hope you loved the bread as much as we do. 🙂
