BANANA ZUCCHINI BREAD is a great way to use your zucchini harvest! When you combine banana break and zucchini bread you end up with awesomeness!!!
The other day my husband came home with a massive bag of zucchini! I’m not sure why he went so crazy with it. Maybe he missed the days in Arizona when we had a home garden and more zucchini than we could handle. What I do know is that it was great! I totally had an excuse to make some of my favorite zucchini recipes that I haven’t made in awhile like Zucchini Fritters, Zucchini Rice and even a new favorite Chocolate Zucchini Cake! I even made Banana Zucchini Bread the other day for breakfast and loved it!!!
Banana breads to me are one of the best comfort foods to wake up to. They’re as simple to mix up as muffins but even easier because you just pour the whole batter into the loaf pan and bake! There is no pouring into little muffin cups, one pour and your done! Banana Zucchini Bread is the best with a cup of tea and melting butter spread on the slice! I may have had a hard time stopping at one slice!
