Zucchini Banana Bread with chocolate chips
Easy, delicious quick bread from shredded fresh zucchini and ripe bananas and decadent chocolate in every bite. Makes a great breakfast, snack or dessert.
- 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.
