Zucchini Banana 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. I make my favorite zucchini recipes like Chocolate Zucchini Cake and then I shred it the rest of the zucchini 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 Cinnamon 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 things like this amazing Banana and Zucchini Bread to use up my zucchini from last year and bananas from who knows when! It ranks right up there with my favorite Zucchini Bread.
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 every time 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!
