Zucchini Banana Bread

This is so delicious! Good luck keeping it in your house long!

Time: 1 hour Makes: 1 Loaf

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1/3 cup melted coconut oil, cooled to room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup shredded zucchini

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 8×4-inch loaf pan and coat with flour and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir until well combined. Add the flour mixture and stir gently with a rubber spatula until flour is mixed in. Squeeze the zucchini in a paper towel to remove excess liquid. Fold the zucchini into batter.

Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55-60 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then remove the bread from the pan and place on wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
