  • loaf pan


  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini skin on
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 overripe bananas mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons canola (or vegetable) oil
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (or combination chips and chunks)


  • Preheat the oven to 350° then grease a loaf pan and set aside.
  • Grate the zucchini then lightly dab some of the moisture with a paper towel. Don't drain the zucchini. You want some of the moisture left in.
  • In a small bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a medium bowl mash the bananas then fold in the beaten egg, vanilla, oil and sugar. Once it’s combined, add the shredded zucchini then blend in the chocolate chips/chunks.
  • Pour the batter in to the prepared loaf pan then bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  • NOTE: tent the top of the pan with aluminum foil if it’s getting too brown before the bread is done.
