I’m a huge fan of quickbreads at my house. I almost always have banana bread on the counter for a quick slice for breakfast or zucchini muffins to pack in school lunches. Recently I combined three of my favorite quick bread recipes into one to make this delicious Chocolate Chip Zucchini Banana Bread that is going to be your new favorite!
This recipe is rich and sweet enough to be called a dessert but packed with all the nutritional goodness of the banana and zucchini. My kids had no idea there were veggies in this bread which I absolutely love. They were begging for another batch almost immediately. Luckily it’s fast and easy to make as well!Print
