This is no ordinary banana bread.
It is truly delicious, and with no butter or oil, just the help of a small zucchini to keep it moist.
A few extra features include the addition of walnuts, dried cranberries, & unsweetened coconut.
If you want a little more nutrition, feel free to add some flax seeds and hemp hearts. With only 1/8 cup each, you can’t even taste them in there, but you can always add more if your heart desires.
