"Excellent!!! I made muffins instead, but make sure you change the time to 20 minutes. Great use for my overripe bananas and fresh zucchini."
"Excellent recipe! Was a little short of flour so added some oatmeal. Skipped the nuts. Also substituted applesauce for half the oil. Made as muffins - probably won't last through the day."
"YUM!! I made 8 mini loaves which took @ 35 minutes to bake. I used half the oil and applesauce for the remaining half. The loaves are moist and delicious!! Thanks for a great recipe."
"Excellent recipe! I tweaked it a bit, used cinnamon applesauce in place of the oil, added 3/4 tsp. of nutmeg and increased the baking powder to 1 tsp. This bread rose beautifully and took about 50 minutes. Thanks for posting!"
"I thought this was great bread.I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand so I thought it would be fun to try.It took one medium sized zucchini for the one cup and three small bananas.I did substitute applesauce for half the oil and it still turned out very moist.I left the nuts out because I'm not a big fan of them in bread and I added about 1/3 cup raisins instead.I would make this again and I may even add some blueberries next time."
"This is terrific. Just looking for a recipe that would use up my extra bananas and zucchini, and this is the one. I also added a dash of nutmeg, just to make the kitchen smell good! Glad I made 4 loaves, the first two were gone before they had a chance to cool off!"
"Delicious bread! We'll definitely be making this again! Thanks!"
"Great combination of breads! A nice change from regular all-banana breads. Thank you!"
"turn this recipe up a few notches....I used 1/2 c of brown sugar and the remainder left as white sugar, increased the cinnamon to 4 teaspoons added 1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg increased the vanilla to 4 teaspoons....it was fantastic!...made sure to cook till just barely done...to make sure it was extra moist!"
"Followed recipe as written. Great flavor....hubby loved it. Was a little too fluffy for me. I like my quick breads on the dense side, but that's just me....dense..Jk. ;)"
"Wow! This was so good! I did make some changes though. I didnt shredded the zucchini, that takes forever. I just chopped it really small. I also did not use a whole cup of oil. I did 1/2 apple sauce and 1/2 oil. No pecans. I used walnuts. I split in two pans and in one I mixed 2 teaspoons of coco. The chocolate one was so good. The other one was good too. It tastes kind of buttery even though there is none in it. We all liked the addition of coco. Next time, i will use 3 bananas and 3 teaspoons od coco per loaf pan. Maybe, even skip the zucchini. The only thing was that it didn't rise very high. Still 5 stars though."
"I changed it a little. I did small pieces of zucchini instead of shredding it and used walnuts instead of pecans. It smells amazing and I'm waiting for it to cool down to try some."
"This is awesome! Made as stated, did not change anything, and it was excellent! My family loved it, even my daughter who hates zucchini. Good thing I froze the second loaf!"
"This is now my all time favorite quick bread recipe! I tweaked it a bit after reading reviews. I used 1/2 cup of applesauce (made my own) and only 1/2 cup of oil (could probably cut back even more). I also added 1/2 cup of bran, used walnuts instead of pecans, and sprinkled oatmeal on top of the batter when in the pans."
"I made this using only applesauce - no oil - and my loaves turned out so moist and delicious! So glad I didn't use the oil. My stone loaf pan worked much better as compared to my air bake pan. The loaf in the air bake pan was completely flat while the one baked in the stone pan was much more rounded. Very yummy - thanks."
"I omitted nuts because I made this partly for my 1 1/2 year old. It was a big hit with myself, hubby, and her! I don't have two loaf pans, so I put it in a single bundt pan and it turned out beautifully. I had to add a little extra flour (bc no nuts). This was so moist and delicious. And, I was able to "sneak" some veggies into my picky eater. Thanks!"
"I really enjoyed this and have raved about it to others. I subbed applesauce for some of the oil and used raisins instead of pecans. I will make this again."
"This bread tastes great! I made 4 mini loaves in my Pampered Chef stoneware. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because the outside started to get too brown while the inside of the middle wasn't done. Could have been my fault... not sure but the taste was still amazing and I'll definitely try it again!"
"This bread is fantastic! I actually got rave reviews from my husband who is rarely impressed with anything I make - especially baked goods! I only used 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup melted butter per the reccomendation of another review and I added chocolate chips - YUM! I will treasure this recipe!"
