    My…my this loaf of yours is making me crazy…Joanne! and Love it. So healthy and delightful.

  6. I’ve made zucchini everything–including pot pie!! I’ve never made it this way and I’m grateful to a new recipe for the abundant vegetable!!


  7. Candace says:

    I would have never put bananas and zucchini together either; but it looks delicious. I guess chocolate brings everything together in love, right? We frequently have bananas rotting on the shelf and the occasional zucchini. This is the perfect way to use them!

  8. Danielle says:

    this looks amazing – going to check it out!

  9. SnoWhite says:

  10. Eliana says:

    Not sure what to do with so much deliciousness in one sweet bread. Running over right now to check out the recipe.

  11. Zucchini bread is one of those things I resisted for a long time because it just sounded weird, but it really has the best flavor. You recipe looks great and I would love to try!

  12. Nice! Before even reading the recipe, I’m already putting this on my list of things to make (only 10 things on that currently, not to be confused with my recipe binder, from which hundreds of pages are overflowing and there’s no guarantee any of them will make it all the way to the kitchen. the shear volume of the thing scares me).

  13. That Girl says:

    I grew up on zucchini chocolate chip bread!

  14. m says:

    Yes, lots of zucchini right now, and yellow squash and patty pan…my CSA runneth over

  15. Great Job Joanne! I made a gluten free version like this this weekend. It was very yummy!

  16. Swathi says:

    Zuchini and chocolate chips bread that too healthy with whole wheat, I am in love to digg in.

  17. Pam says:

    Oh man… this one is calling my name!

  18. Pierce says:

    It looks moist…and healthy too. I could go for that with my afternoon cuppa coffee.

  19. Raina says:

    I am looking forward to reading your recipe and seeing your post because I think this is such a great combination, healthy and delicious:)

    Thanks for making and posting my bread! You’re the best.

  24. sophia says:

    As a matter of fact, Joanne, I DO have bananas AND zucchinis to get rid of. We are gastronomic soul sisters. 😉

    Hop hop hopping over….~~

  25. Mercedes says:

    Love that you used whole wheat! This looks hearty and delicious and I just bought zucchini at the farmers’ market and need to use it!

  26. yum! gotta try it, as my last zucchini bread flopped. hard. 🙁

  27. ~Bee says:

    Oh yum! This reminds me of a Rachel Ray magazine where they suggested mix-ins for quick breads. I’d never think of doing chocolate chips with zucchini–banana maybe–but now that I think about it, zucchini bread does lend itself well to sweeter accompaniments 🙂

  28. Kristen says:

    That is one pretty loaf of bread!

  29. Nicole, RD says:

    Almost bad bananas – check! Almost bad zucchini – check! Lucky me 🙂 Looks awesome! Thanks, Joanne 🙂

  30. That just sounds like too many really good things in one quick bread recipe…

  31. I always have bananas rotting on the counter, and I have never wondered what to do with them (because I make banana bread or muffins almost every week!). But I love that this uses zucchini as well. Headed over to check out the recipe.

  32. Kj says:

    Wow, Zucchini, Banana, and Chocolate Chips? What could be better!? 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  33. Monet says:

    Will do! I bet this bread is super moist. I love both of those breads on their own…and the thought of combining them is making me drool! Thank you for sharing yourself and your yummy treats. I hope you had a great day today, and I hope you have an even better day tomorrow. Hugs and love from Austin!

  34. Rachana says:

    Chocolate, Banana and Zucchini… a great combo!!! Thanks for sharing.

  35. Sounds really scrumptious! I have never tried baking with zucchini yet, though I have heard so much about it. Looks good!


  36. Yesterday I lamented the fact that I had bananas but no zucchini on hand…and then last night I got zucchini in my weekly CSA box!!! So obviously tonight I’m baking this.

  37. I love when recipes serve as both guilt-relieving garbage disposals and sources of terrific food. Hopefully you aren’t offended that I just called your bread a garbage disposal. 🙂 It looks delicious.

  38. This looks and sounds wonderful! I’m wishing I would have grown zucchini this year but the husband protested its wayward growing habits.

  39. This type of treat makes me think I can eat as much as I want because it has vegetables in it. Dangerous, dangerous snack.

  40. What a great idea to combine all of these 🙂 going to check it out now!

  41. Oh my. I need to eat this right now. 🙂 The clouds just rolled in over Amsterdam and I’m craving something warm and chocolatey and comforting. 🙂

  42. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Zucchini and banana….yum! I was just talking about how much I love both of these breads yesterday. I never thought to use them together!

  43. Woww.. your zucchini bread looks so yumm.. I love baking 😀 I have to check it out at MSB.. 🙂

  44. Jeanette says:

    I’ve made banana bread and zucchini bread, but never combined them – great idea, especially with all the zucchini I’ve been getting in my CSA Box!

  45. Elizabeth says:

    I made something like this once, and it was great. But yours looks better. Yum!

  46. Yumm! I have zucchinis and bananas that need using but no eggs. 🙁 I wonder how this would work with chia or flax eggs hmmm.
