But right now, let’s talk about quick breads. I love making them, as they are not only a great breakfast, but also wonderful with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. Another great thing about quick breads? They freeze so well. I chose NOT to put a glaze on today’s Banana Zucchini bread recipe, however this cream cheese glaze that I used on the Apple Banana Carrot bread would be wonderful. Just sayin. I knew I wanted to freeze the bread, and I usually try to freeze them without the glaze (and add it fresh instead).
I was inspired by my Blueberry Banana Bread recipe to change it up and create today’s Banana Zucchini Bread. Oh my gosh, so good. Sweet, nutty, moist…everything you need in a perfect slice of bread! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Banana Zucchini Bread
Yield: 2 loaves
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup milk (I use skim)
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups finely shredded zucchini
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Grease and flour two 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pans (or use baking spray). I like to line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper as an extra precaution. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine everything except zucchini and pecans. Beat until well blended, about 2 minutes. Fold in zucchini and pecans.
- Pour into prepared pans and bake in a 350°F oven for 60-65 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
- Store in airtight container at room temperature, or freeze in a ziploc freezer bags. ENJOY!
