Zucchini-Pumpkin Bread

by Jen on April 12, 2012

Hello, and welcome!

I absolutely love banana bread.  As you know, I have a slice smothered with almond butter every single night.  Even though my Moist and Healthy Banana Bread is amazing, sometimes I like to mix it up a little, add a different flavour here and there.

I’ve made zucchini loaf and I’ve made pumpkin loaf, but I’ve never put them together.  I’m sure glad I did!  This loaf has all of your favourite flavours: pumpkin, banana, and of course, I just had to add some chocolate.

This Zucchini-Pumpkin Bread is so delicious.  The addition of the mashed fruit, grated zucchini, and yogurt make this bread wonderfully moist.  And the best part, your kids won’t even know they are eating something nutritious!

I like to enjoy a slice of this bread with my evening cup of tea and a good reality show.
