Banana Zucchini Date Bread and a Big Smile

I’ve been baking banana zucchini bread, refreshing my email, waiting for a reply from a dear long-distance friend that I hadn’t heard from in a while. Now that I have a reply I have a smile on my face as big and warm as the cinnamon banana scent that’s filling the house!

I was inspired by Sunny Anderson’s Secret Banana Walnut Bread.

I followed her recipe except for a few additions and subtractions. I had some julienned zucchini for zoodles that needed to be used up. I chopped them up and added some, and I minced up some dates that were hanging out in the fridge.

I reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup, added 1/3 cup minced dates, 1/2 cup raw zucchini, added 1/2 tsp vanilla and added 1/4 tsp cinnamon.

I’ve been referring to it as “Sunny Anderson’s Weird-ass Banana Bread” due to the Worcestershire sauce. It’s actually very moist and light, not too sweet and full of banana goodness!

I’ll definitely make this again!
