Bread fresh from the oven

Do you have more zucchini than you know what you do with? If so, then I’ve got the recipe for you!

Every year our garden produces more zucchini than we can keep up with. And every year I try a new zucchini bread recipe. This time I happened to have a lot of overripe banana laying around too, and some walnuts. So I threw them all together in this delicious quick bread recipe!

Grating zucchini


Adding walnuts

It really was everything I hoped it would be. Is it banana bread? Is it zucchini bread? It’s both! And it’s yummy. And simple.

The zucchini, banana, and walnuts go together quite well in this bread. Slathered with butter, you couldn’t ask for a better snack.

Even if you don’t have a garden overflowing with zucchini, this is worth going out and getting a bunch.

    You know, every time I make banana bread, I want to sneak a little zucchini in there to see what it would taste like, but my husband is repulsed by the idea, so I don't (Otherwise, I'd be eating the whole thing myself, I think!). Next time, I'm definitely going to give this a try – Your bread looks absolutely delicious!

    Hello there! I absolutely love your photography. I have been attempting to capture my cooking/baking adventures in my kitchen as well and just cannot get the lighting down with my Rebel camera. Do you have any ideas? Do you use a spotlight? Any insight would be so great, thanks dear!

    First time made just as written was yummy! Second time I had 2 cups of zucchini to use up so used all of the zucchini and swapped 2 cups of white flour for King Arthur white whole wheat flour. My husband liked it even better!
