Ingredients

  • 1 Banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Zucchini shredded
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1.5 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3 tbsp. Ground flax seed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the banana, eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, almond milk and cinnamon.
  2. Add in the flour 1/2 a cup at a time. Then add in the baking soda, ground flax seed, and salt. Fold in the shredded zucchini. If your zucchini has a lot of moisture squeeze some out with a clean towel first.

  3. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper and spray it with coconut oil spray. Leave some paper out of each side of the loaf pan so you can use it to easily remove the loaf when it's done.
  4. Pour the batter into the pan. Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Ovens can vary, so you want to watch the bread. Remember if you change the size of the pan you will need to adjust cooking time.

Recipe Notes

Gluten Free- I have not tried this recipe with gluten free flour.  If you were going to attempt it, I recommend trying Bob's Red Mill 1:1 baking flour.  I've always had good luck in baking with this flour.

Other Add Ins:  Feel free to add nuts or chocolate chips. They would be delicious!
