Not sure what that has to do with being a teacher, but it’s the truth. And now I shall tell you about this chocolate chip banana zucchini bread.

Zucchini bread on the other hand, gross. I did not like the texture as a kid at all. I refused to eat it which must have been so much fun for my parents. And then I slowly forgot about it until I became a food blogger. If there’s one thing pinterest doesn’t need more of it’s quick bread recipes, so obviously I chose to give you all one.

I think the big win came because the zucchini was grated so fine and oil was used instead of butter. I know! Don’t get crazy on me. I love butter more than anyone but oil really does make a better quick bread. It just does.

I’m totally interested in trying this zucchini breakfast cookies recipe as well. Let me know if you did!

Quick and easy chocolate chip banana zucchini bread for those who can't decide and need both!
Ingredients
  • 1½ Cups Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1¼ Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Cup Canola Oil
  • ⅔ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 Cup Banana, mashed (not pureed), about 2 large bananas
  • 1 Cup Zucchini, finely grated, about 1 zucchini
  • 1½ Cups Chocolate Chips of Choice
Instructions
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and grease a bread pan (not a large pan)
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a mixer, add the canola oil and sugar. Add the egg and mix again. Dump in the zucchini and mix on medium speed until everything is evenly combined.
  4. Starting and ending with the flour, add a little flour while the mixer is running on low. Next add a little mashed banana and continue to alternate until the last of the flour is added. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour into a greased bread pan. Lighter pans provide better results than the dark pans.
  5. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, tenting with foil the last 15 minutes to avoid too much browning. Allow to cool before slicing then serve warmed up with a little butter.
