Thank you for your kind words on my post about How I Started Blogging Full-Time.

Every time I publish a post that’s more personal than just a recipe, there’s always a little fear and hesitation. And yet, each time, the response from you all is always so positive and supportive. I think the internet gets a bad rap for being a negative space where anonymous trolls can run rampant, and not enough focus is put on the positivity that can be found online as well.

Even on facebook or instagram, whenever I see someone posting about feeling down, there will be dozens—or sometimes even hundreds—of comments on the post from people who take time out of their busy lives to lift someone else up.

In other news, did you know that this past Monday was National Zucchini Bread Day? I’m not sure why we never got the day off from school (Seriously, it’s zucchini bread, people!), but a day devoted to eating zucchini bread definitely ought to be celebrated.

This year I took it up a notch by combining two delicious breads worth celebrating: zucchini bread and banana bread.

I also added chocolate chips.

Because… it isn’t a celebration without chocolate. The recipe could not be easier – You just throw everything into the blender and let the machine do all of the work for you.

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (260g)
  • 1 cup mashed banana (240g)
  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini, loosely packed (200g)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Add all other ingredients (except optional chips) and blend until smooth. Stir in chips, if using. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then bake on the middle rack for 35 minutes. Turn the oven off, but DON’T open the oven. Let the bread sit in the closed oven for another 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and let cool completely before going around the sides with a knife, then inverting onto a plate.

    So good. Oh man. Made one loaf to try it out, it was so good my hubs polished it off that day. Now I’m making three loads just to keep up with the demand!! Absolutely delicious. I’m slight side note: I only do 1/3cup of maple syrup because it’s too sweet for me otherwise.

  2. Rebecca says

    Amazing! I subbed 1/2 cup buckwheat flour and used sugar instead of syrup since that’s what I had. Will 100% make this again.

  3. Shaunace Stanton says

    Hi Katie! I’m planning to make this tomorrow but feel 1/2 cup of maple/honey is a lot of sugar! Is there a way to decrease this amount and use something else (dates maybe) or does it need to be liquid?

  4. Amal Biggers says

    The recipes from here always work wonderfully for me. I think that the key is to weigh the ingredients.

  5. Carol says

    The picture of the loaf doesn’t look like this batter was in a vitamix. I just stirred it up like a usual banana bread and it was getting very bubbly as soon as I started stirring. Is this the wrong picture to go with these instructions?

  6. Drea Taylor says

    Hi Katie,
    I’ve been a fan for a long time. Made many of your recipes, but had not yet tried this. Probably because I do not usually buy extra zucchini if purchasing……like many we had the time to finally expand our garden this year so we grew zucchini for the first time in many years. I think my motivation was more to grow something I know to be successful rather than preference to taste on this item….well anyways we can hardly keep up. We steam it, saute it, and we’ve been eating lots of THIS BREAD! It is so good! Thanks for this recipe. I now know I will never make regular banana bread again.
