Healthy Low-Fat Banana Zucchini Bread


This bread is a combination of zucchini and banana bread, and it is a wonderful way to use up old bananas and dip into that summer harvest of zucchini. The bread tastes more like banana bread than zucchini bread, but it has the added nutritional benefits of vegetables. This bread is lower in fat that the standard banana/zucchini bread because applesauce replaces some of the oil in the recipe. Still using some oil, however, will prevent the bread from getting rubbery. Experiment by using pumpkin instead of bananas during the autumn months or by adding walnuts and dates! This recipe makes 2 loaves. Enjoy!


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup raisins (or dates or walnuts)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (Quaker Old Fashioned Oats)
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 medium overripe bananas, mashed (the riper, the sweeter)
  • 4 eggs (or Egg Beaters to cut some calories)
