Zucchini Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

2 Jul

Before we snarfed more for breakfast…

Yup, still working through those zucchinis from last week’s farmers’ market. We really overbought that week! We burned through half in a delicious frittata yesterday for lunch (with bell peppers and feta cheese), and I used the other half in this. Now we just have one left, so I think we’ll make it before we go on our mini-vacation for July 4th.

Even though I made this bread in the evening, I had intended it to be our breakfast the next day, only I couldn’t help but try a slice out… quality assurance or something like that. We also had some for breakfast this morning. No way to start the day better than with a chocolatey zucchini bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c regular (unbleached) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 3 medium/small ripe bananas
  • 1/3 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c grated zucchini
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips

Method

  • Preheat at 350.
  • Whisk dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt) in a medium bowl.
  • With an electric beater, beat together the eggs, honey, bananas, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. A little bit at a time, drop the flour mixture into the wet mixture, continuing to beat until smooth. Then stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
  • Bake for ~45 minutes or until top is tan and cracked, and a knife comes out smooth.
