What’s Left Bread aka Banana Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread

Is it just my household, or does anyone else buy a bunch of bananas with the best intentions of eating them before they get a squick of brown on them only to find them all soft and mushy behind the loaf of bread and sweet potatoes? No? Just me then, eh?

What’s the natural progression of a bunch of very ripe bananas? Make Banana bread! But I also had zucchini that needed to be eaten and two packages of opened chocolate chips yet only had two eggs, and not enough sugar. What’s a Foodie to do?  Improvise.

The following recipe was adapted from an adaptation.

What’s Left Bread

•    4 very ripe bananas
•    4 med zucchini, shredded
•    1 1/8 cup sugar
•    2 egg, beaten
•    3 cups of all-purpose flour
•    1 cup whole wheat flour
•    2 tsp baking powder
•    2 tsp baking soda
•    1 tsp salt
•    1 tbl cinnamon
•    4 tbsp butter, melted
•    1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350.  Combine ripe bananas, shredded zucchini, sugar and eggs in Kitchen Aid, mix until fully combined.

2.  Add baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to 1/2 c flour and mix well.  Gradually add the remaining flour wet mix stirring until well combined.

3.  Stir in the melted butter then chocolate chips.  Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45 min to 1 hour.

Makes 2 loaves

The end result? DIVINE.
