A moist and delicious way to use excess over-ripe bananas and an abundance of garden zucchini.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Want to make your banana bread super moist? Add shredded zucchini! It takes banana bread to another level. It's soft and lightly sweet with notes of cinnamon. Best to serve this warm with a slather of butter. The batter fits perfectly in three small loaf pans and the bread rises beautifully. A great gift to bring a friend if you don't eat it all first.
