Recipe: Clean Eating Banana Zucchini Bread

I've had to take a bit of a hiatus in posting due to some health issues, but I'm going to try to get back into regular posts, especially considering SO many people have asked me about eating clean lately!

So here's a recipe to start! Made two loaves and 24 muffins today out of a double batch. They. Are. AWESOME! Enjoy!

3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp Sea Salt
4 eggs (or 2 eggs and 3 egg whites if you prefer)
2 Cups Evaporated Cane Juice (i.e. "Clean" Sugar)
1 Cup Canola Oil
1/2 Tbsp. Vanilla
3 Ripe Bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 Cups Zucchini, unpeeled and shredded

* In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt. Set aside.

* Beat eggs/whites. Blend in Evaporated Cane Juice, oil, and vanilla. Add bananas and mix well. Stir into flour mixture until well-mixed. Gently fold in zucchini.

* Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks and cool completely. Yields: 2 loaves. (For muffins, pour into 24 greased muffin cups and bake approximately 25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.)


  1. Yummy! I found this while searching for a recipe to use up some old bananas. I also had a large zucchini so lucky me! I had everything to make this delicious bread. I baked it in 4 mini loaf pans for about 40 minutes. The cinnamon is not included in the directions, mix it in the dry ingredients.

  2. would love to see the nurtitional info for this :) but myfitnesspal will help with that I presume :) thanks for this delightful recipe

    1. Yeah, I probably should start including them. I personally try not to pay too much attention on calories and such (I do pay close attention to sugar content!) But I know others would appreciate it. Thanks for the nudge. ;)

    1. Fantastic! Thanks for figuring this out and adding it. =) Have you made the recipe yet? What did you think? I welcome all feedback!

  4. Just made this for the first time. My kids love them! I made muffins and mini muffins. My 1 year old kept stealing the mini ones and threw an absolute fit when I moved them someplace he couldn't get to them anymore.
