"Great tasting and easy. I had no banana extract or walnuts so left them out but added some dark choc chips and halved the sugar. I used a chopper instead of grater for zucchini - easier. Doubled recipes and got 4 8 x 4 inch loaves. Added this recipe to my favorites. Very moist. Had one slice and it is killing me to not cut myself another!"

"These were quickly eaten! I did not measure my bananas or zucchini, ended up with 4 perfect little loaves of bread. Baked according to directions. As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor I enjoy making classic recipes that combine ingredients I have on-hand. Highly recommend!"
