Amazing! Made it several times and it's always perfect. Have never added banana extract - don't think it's needed and afraid it would add artificial flavor. I always double the recipe to make 4 small and 1 large loaf. Always moist and delicious!

Swapped out the nuts to cinnamon chips due to allergies. Great for breakfast, the lunch box or a midnight snack!

Easy, and a great way to use some of the abundance of summer zucchini. I baked in regular loaf pans. I did not have banana extract, so use a bit of orange emulsion-and it was a lovely flavor. These are very moist.

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!
