Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup grated zucchini about 2 zucchinis

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9X5 loaf pan with parchment paper.  
  • Mix butter and sugar until well combined. 
  • Add eggs one by one, whisk well after adding each egg. 
  • Add in mashed bananas and mix. 
  • Add cinnamon, all purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well using a whisk or a wooden spoon. 
  • Fold in grated zucchini. 
  • Pour zucchini banana bread batter into the loaf pan. 
  • Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with very few crumbs.
  • Cool the banana bread completely before slicing. 

Notes

  • It's best to have all the ingredients at room temperature, This will help with the process of making banana bread and consistency of the batter.
  • I almost always use sour cream, buttermilk or yogurt in my banana bread recipes. However, for this tasty zucchini banana bread , this recipe doesn't use any of them because grated zucchini keeps the banana bread quite moist.
  • Let the bread cool completely before slicing. If I make the banana bread in the evening, I always let it cool until morning and then it slices perfectly.
  • For breakfast, you can toast this banana bread and serve it with some almond or peanut butter.
  • Even though this easy banana bread has zucchini in it, because of the 1/2 cup butter, it's not considered the healthiest banana bread. If you're looking for a healthy banana bread recipe, check out my pumpkin banana bread.
