Healthy Banana Zucchini Bread

Slice of Banana Bread

To “lighten up” this banana bread, I used whole wheat and white flour. It also has far less sugar and fat than many other recipes.

Feel free to adapt this recipe to suit your tastes. I used chocolate chips and walnuts, but it would also be delicious with pecans and raisins or dates.

The bread freezes well and toasts nicely for a quick and delicious breakfast!
