Spiced Zucchini Banana Bread Recipe

The BEST Spiced Zucchini Banana Bread Recipe from The Cottage Mama. www.thecottagemama.com

We have had quite a bit of produce in our house this summer with the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) were doing with a local farm. That means each week we go to the farm to pick up a box of organic, in-season produce to use throughout the week. We had quite a few leafy greens in the beginning, but now we’ve moved onto onions, beets, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, etc. So today I had some zucchini to use up and two bananas that were on their way out. So I created this Spiced Zucchini Banana Bread recipe that I think you’ll really enjoy. Even the kids gobbled this up……..well, all except one who saw little specks of green and ran to the hills. But 2 out of 3’s not bad.

The Spiced Zucchini Banana Bread recipe makes two loaves. I figure, if you have all the ingredients out, you might as well make a double recipe! But feel free to cut the ingredients down and make one loaf instead of two.

    Thanks for the great recipe. I might try “hiding” the zucchini behind some chopped pistachios.

  3. Hi, Lindsay. Should one drain and/or squeeze out the liquid from the grated zucchini before proceeding with the mixing together of ingredients? This recipe looks delicious!
