I first posted this recipe on my blog waaaaaaay back in July of 2010, almost 2 years ago! Well, I found it again and thought you all might like it.. I still use this recipe with my boys and no matter what I put in, they gobble it up every time!
This recipe is from the book ‘Deceptively Delicious‘ but I altered it a bit for my family.
3/4 cup w/w flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup firmly pack brown sugar
1/4 cup butter (or oil)
2 large egg whites
2 mashed medium bananas
2 small grated zucchinis (grate on smallest grater for thin strands)
1/2 can canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin-not pie mix)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a bread pan with butter (or cooking spray)
2. Mix flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
3. In large bowl, mix sugar and butter (oil) with a wooden spoon until well combined. Mix in bananas, zucchinis, egg whites, pumpkin and vanilla. Add flour just until combined.
4. Pour batter into greased pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 55-60 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then turn out onto cooling rack.
I love that this bread has fruits as well as veggies in it and you wouldn’t even know it! Grating the zucchinis up very fine makes the bread nice and moist without leaving the stringy feel in your mouth. This is a wonderful recipe for those picky toddlers who don’t want to eat any veggies. It works great on my boys!
