Whole-Grain Zucchini Banana Bread

"This is adapted from a recipe I found in a pregnancy book. It is WONDERFUL! It's good hot, cold or room temperature. It's good plain or with butter. The original recipe doesn't use any sugar but I didn't think I'd like it without it."

    Awesome recipe. I made them as muffins and added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and used whole wheat pastry flour, increasing the amounts of flour slightly.

    When making this bread, I did take the tip from several others & didn't peel the zicchini, but other than that the recipe was followed, & we were very, very satisfied with the great tasting loaf that resulted! Loved the use of the whole grain flour here & will be making this one again! The loaf didn't last very long, but that's the nature of great recipes like this! Thanks for sharing it!

    This bread turned out more like mush than a hardy bread for me. The texture was like cold oatmeal. I was surprised because I baked for the stated amount of time and it passed my toothpick test through the middle of the loaf. Loved all the healthy ingredients and incorporation of flax, so I'm disappointed it didn't turn out for me.

    I didn't want to rate this as I did change some of the ingredients around since I didn't have oat bran on hand. The flavor was good, but the batter did not set up right for me even after adding an additional 15 minutes of baking time. I'll be trying a different recipe next time I'm afraid.

    I had a zucchini and 2 very ripe bananas that had to be used or tossed, and am I glad, because otherwise I may not have found this recipe. Very moist and rich. I also left the zuke unpeeled. Love the flax seed meal in this. I used walnuts instead of pecans and left out raisins (don't like them!) I will be making this again!
