zucchini banana bread
I love zucchini banana bread but I don’t love all the sugar in most recipes.  So, I’ve been experimenting with a healthier version.  My family really liked this recipe so I’m saving it here for future use and to share with all of you.

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c yogurt (Greek or homemade)
  • 1/3 c coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 ripe mashed banana
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 drop cinnamon essential oil or 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 c ground oats
  • 1 c all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 c nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 c dark chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:  Mix all wet ingredients. Blend quick oats in a food processor until fine.  Slowly add dry ingredients while mixing.  Fold in nuts and chocolate (optional).  Bake at 325 degrees until brown.  Approx 45 minutes.  Enjoy your zucchini banana bread!
