Homemade Banana Zucchini Bread

This recipe makes two loaves of banana zucchini bread and I actually tripled the recipe with great success and made six loaves! Then we had a bunch to munch on and enough to give to a few friends and neighbors. I got some great comments back at church after everyone had time to eat theirs so I know they were good!

Recipe For Banana Zucchini Bread

Plan on whipping up a batch of these this afternoon for the kiddos after school snack or make a double batch and send a loaf to school with them tomorrow for their teacher. This is a great recipe and one you’ll want to make again and again, so be sure to pin it or print it because you won’t want to loose it.

How do you know when banana zucchini bread is done?

Use the tried and true toothpick method. Insert the toothpick into the center of the loaf around 50 minutes. If the toothpick comes out clean, your bread is ready.

Do quick breads freeze well?

This bread freezes great! I like to double wrap the bread before freezing. Once with plastic wrap and then again with foil. Bread can stay in the freezer for 2-3 months.
