Banana Zucchini Bread ~ Incredibly Moist, Easy and Loaded with Banana and Zucchini!

A lot of times I get ambitious, like overly ambitious and it doesn’t turn out well. Take my garden for instance, my husband informed me just about mowed over half of it the other night because it was so hideous. Enter an epic fail here. So far my tomatoes and zucchini are growing. I’m pretty sure most of my beans and peas are a loss. There’s always next year right? Because I’m sure next year with another child it will even be easier for me to get out there and tend to my garden since I don’t even have time now.

Good thought huh?

Another example is the fact that I usually plant WAY more zucchini than I’ll ever need. Then I shredded and freeze it and throw it in the freezer. Then I promptly forget about it because I’m a food blogger and I’m making tons of new treats all the time and who wants to go back and use up that zucchini that I took time to freeze? Not I my friends, not I.  Or should I tell you about the bananas that are usually found laying in my freezer patiently waiting for me to use them up? Mots of the times they are long forgotten until I need a treat at the last minute and I go back to a tried and true recipe like my Frosted Banana Bars or if I’m craving banana bread in the dead of winter.

My poor freezer is kind of like a forgotten island most of the time until I decide to declare ware against it and use up everything in there that I’ve neglected. I’m currently declaring war and it’s going pretty good because I end up trying this like this amazing Banana and Zucchini Bread to use up my zucchini from last year and bananas from who knows when!

I’ve also realized I hoard cheese. Lots and lots and lots of cheese. I got ambitious and cleaned the fridge out and sorted my drawer of cheese and quickly realized I don’t need to buy any for about a month or two! I never know if I have any so everytime I’m at the grocery store I throw a couple bags in the cart. That has added up and I now need to go to cheese hoarders anonymous. Anyone with me?

If your Zucchini is ready to harvest or your have a some stashed away from last year this is the perfect treat for you! Plus, it’s so, so very easy. Literally dump all the ingredients in the a bowl, mix it up and bake it! Except for that shredded zucchini part. Let’s not talk about that. I hate that part! Although my amazing KitchenAid food processor makes it so much easier. Now if I can learn how to not cut myself when I clean it I would have a win!

    What a great bread, Julie! I’ve never baked with zucchini before, so I’m loving that you added bananas into it. Looks so moist and delicious. Pinned!

    • Julie Evink


      Zucchini is awesome in baked goods. It makes everything so moist!

  • Billi


    Thanks for the recipe! I also struggle what to do with all my zucchini – I’ve never tried to mix it with bananas, but will give it a shot. Thanks!

    • Julie Evink


      It’s amazing! And I have another pile of Zucchini to use up so I better make it again!

  • Danielle | Krafted Koch


    Yum! This would be great slathered with some butter just to make sure it’s not too healthy! 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      Haha like you have to worry about many of my recipes being “to healthy”! 🙂

  • Matt+Robinson


    What an awesome banana bread, I could live on this for a day or two!

    • Julie Evink


      I think my hubs did! Better make up another batch 🙂

  • Julianne+@+Beyond+Frosting


    You combined two of my favorite breads! Banana and Zucchini in one! Yum!!

  • Thalia+@+butter+and+brioche


    i love a good banana bread.. never tried banana and zucchini before! looks incredibly moist and delicious, definitely could devour a slice right now!

  • Kathi @ Deliciously Yum!


    Oh my goodness, Julie! How have I never thought of combining banana and zucchini into one great recipe? Banana bread is my all-time favorite, throw in zucchini and I know I could do some serious damage ;). Looks and sounds amazing. Pinned!

    • Julie Evink


      It’s terrific Kathi! Can’t really go wrong 🙂

  • Gwen


    Cannot get the recipe to print

    • Julie Evink


      Sorry! I redid the post and now it will print. Thanks for letting me know!

  • Ron Mazur


    Do you squeeze the water out of the zucchini?

  • mallory


    can i substitute the canola oil for vegetable oil? i do not have canola oil..? Also if i want to make only one loaf how would i cut this in half?

    • Julie Evink


      Yes you can substitute the oils. To divide in half just divide all the ingredients by 2 and use one loaf pan.

  • Brigetta


    Your recipes sounds sumptuous but I can’t read then because there’s a stupid McDonald’s add right over the ingredients with no way to delete it!

    • Julie Evink


      Over the ingredients? I’m not sure what that is… did you try reloading the page?

  • Aimee N Ezell


    Can i use whole wheat flour instead of white…and organiccane sugar instead of white…

  • Aimee+N+Ezell


    Just made using whole wheat flour and organic sugar cane sugar….sprinkled chopped pecans on top….omg….deelish

    • Julie Evink


      Glad to hear it turned out Aimee!

  • Erin


    This bread was awesome. Next time I am going to add walnuts to the mix. The zucchini made the bread super moist. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
