I have never posted so many zucchini recipes in a row…but this is number 4, in case you’re counting!

And if you want more zucchini recipes, you can always check out my zucchini archives! There are over a dozen recipes to choose from!

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).

Banana Zucchini Bread

Yield: 2 loaves

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Sweet and nutty, this Banana Zucchini Bread is a great breakfast or dessert. With two loaves coming out of the oven, it's perfect to share or freeze for later!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl, combine everything except zucchini and pecans. Beat until well blended, about 2 minutes. Fold in zucchini and pecans.
  3. 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.
  4. Store in airtight container at room temperature, or freeze in a ziploc freezer bags. ENJOY!

  1. Mir

    I love your recipe title today. It will totally get me in the kitchen if these fab pics don’t. I love this combo!

  2. Just picked 3 more zucchini out of the garden this morning and I can’t think of a better way to use them than in this bread! What a great breakfast or snack with coffee like you said!

  3. I so love that you added zucchini to banana bread or banana to zucchini bread – this is like a salad basically so I can enjoy seconds and thirds right? 🙂 BTW, You have such a lovely collection of quick breads!

  4. Hahaha!  I am getting ready to post zucchini recipe 3 or 4…I’ve lost track of how many I’ve made this year!  Love this fun veggie and fruit laden bread…also, love that you can’t see the zucchini in it because my kids tend to be picky if they can see green!!  Little boogers!! The kids that is…not the green flecks!  LOL!!!

  5. HA! I love the title of this! Sounds like a great combo to me!

  6. This bread looks amazing! A combo of two of my fave quick breads 🙂

  7. Ong I love banana bread AND zucchini bread, so I know this would be a winner! Plus we have SO many zucchini right now it’s ridiculous. This is awesome! 

  8. We like banana bread and we like zucchini bread, so I assume we would like them together. Thanks for the recipe.

  9. Luv a good tart

    Really enjoyed the Banana Zucchini loaf, even added grated carrot to make up 2 cups. I have a question, in all the recipes I’ve read & seen, it always says to fold in the flour, that beating the flour in like the butter, sugar & eggs, will toughen the quick loaf or cake, why do you beat the flour in?
