    This is a moist flavorful bread that combines the great taste and healthy benefits of zucchini and bananas. I received this recipe from my aunt Ann. This makes 2 loaves

      I LOVE this recipe. I don't know how anyone can say it's "flat and bland"! I cut extra sugar out of recipes as much as possible and also almost always substitute whole-meal flour in all baking to decrease sugar/calories/carbs and bump up the whole-grain/fiber content. So, I used half sugar and half Zylitol instead of all sugar (and I decided that I can probably cut the total down to a half-cup (instead of 3/4 c.) for 1 loaf. I also eliminated the vanilla. I love that this recipe has so little oil. My "tried & true" banana bread recipe uses a full stick of butter for one loaf! I also love that this turned out so moist; I didn't have to play the game of slightly undercooking it, which always left the top of the mid-section mushy (with my old recipe). And I found this to be wonderfully flavorful. THANKS for the new, improved, and healthier banana bread recipe for my book!

      Followed the recipe exactly, but it did not taste good. Sorta flat and bland. Disappointed.

      Wonderful!! Very tasty! I made this at the spur of the moment because I had some very overripe bananas. I used 1 1/2 cups of regular flour and 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour. My husband and I just had a warm piece of the bread and we both thought it was fabulous. It's definately going into my cookbook!
