Blueberry Banana Zucchini Bread
Delicious and simple bread that is bursting with flavor! I was truly surprised at how perfectly delicious this was. It wasn't too overwhelming in any taste and no, you can't "taste the zucchini". I shared it in my office and they loved it as well my own kids. GASP! With a regular grater I was able to shave off white I needed with PLENTY to spare since this garden grown zucchini was the size of a small child. I blended up my banana in my Ninja so I got a nice blended consistency so there weren't chunks. This tasty treat was perfect for quick and easy mornings!
It serves about 12 slices depending on thickness.
1 large egg
1/2 cup light brown sugar , packed
1/3 cup coconut oil , liquid-state
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cup sour cream
1 TBSP . vanilla extract
1 1/2 - 2 cups all-purpose flour* see notes
1/2 tsp . baking powder
1/2 tsp . baking soda
1/2 tsp . cinnamon , optional
1 cup of fresh grated zucchini , remove moisture by placing in between two paper towels and pressing firmly * (see notes)
2 medium bananas , mashed
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease one 9x5-inch loaf pan ( you an also split the batter into two pans, just be sure to adjust the baking time)
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, coconut oil, granulated sugar, sour cream and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon, and fold into mixture.
Add the zucchini, bananas, and blueberries, and fold gently to combine.
Turn batter out into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
Bake for about 65 -80 minutes or until the top is golden, the center is set, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 15- 20 minutes until transferring to a wire rack.
*NOTES: All zucchini and bananas are different in the amount of moisture in them. Your batter should be on the thicker side. The zucchini will release water into the batter as it bakes. You may add additional flour to batter before cooking if needed. It's better to have your batter be too thick than thin. I also suggest you place your grated zucchini between paper towels and press firmly to remove as much moisture as you can. Bake as long as needed and place a piece of foil on top of the bread if the top is beginning to brown.
