Zucchini Bread

We found this delicious recipe online at We had some extra zucchini that my dad {Vianne's grampy...gardener extraordinaire} gave us from his garden and we couldn't let it go to waste.

Here's how to make it:


3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup applesauce {we used unsweetened}
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup white sugar {we used raw sugar}
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 1/2 cups grated zucchini


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease (2) 8 x 4 inch loaf pans

2. Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

3. Beat the bananas, applesauce, veg. oil, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice together in a separate large bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the banana mixture; add the zucchini and mix until combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pans.

4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 60- 90 minutes. Cool in the pans for 20 mins before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

*** For a crunchy texture we also added a few handfuls of walnuts to the mixture***

Vianne's Review:

I would give this recipe a B+. it was very delicous and to my liking. I was passionate about its bannana flavor. I hope you try this recipe!

Mariah's Review:

I love zucchini bread, mostly because it doesn't taste like zucchini! This is a great way to get your vegan on in the morning, but actually this is so good I could eat it for dessert too. B+


  1. I must say that I am not usually a fan of zuke bread, I usually think of it as dry and too veggie-ish tasting. But to my surprise this was actually super moist and tasted more like a dense coffee cake! I loved the walnuts too. I will probably sneak intot he kitchen for another piece soon. Kudos to Vianne for being so excited about veggies and blogging! Looking forward to more recipes to taste test! Love, Auntie Trish

    1. Thanks Aunty Trish. Im glad you liked it! Now you can make it at home as well. You'll be happy to hear that there are more recipes to come! Love, Vianne
