Ingredients

  • DRY INGREDIENTS
  • 1 2/3 cup 200g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tablespoon Nutmeg
  • WET INGREDIENTS
  • 2 Bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup 100g Agave Nectar (if you don't have agave on hand, look at my notes)
  • 3 tablespoons 45ml Water
  • 1/2 cup 125ml Vegetable Oil
  • OTHER INGREDIENTS
  • 2 medium Zucchinis skin on, shredded
  • 2/3 cup Walnuts
  • 5.3 ounces 150g Dark Chocolate (chopped or Chocolate Chips) (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a different bowl beat together the wet ingredients. This is best done with a mixer so no big banana clumps remain.
  4. Using a wooden spoon slowly mix wet ingredients with dry. Then add Zucchini,Walnuts and Chocolate.
  5. Pour dough into loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes. Test with a skewer before removing from oven.
  6. Let cool for 10 minutes before attempting to take out of loaf pan.

Recipe Notes

1)If you do not have Agave Nectar use 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar. Granulated sugar often goes through a process using bone char and therefore not vegan. Look for organic versions or raw sugar. 2) You can also add dates or raisins to this recipe if you like. I would love to hear of any variations.
