3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup vegetable oil (or for a lower fat version use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon banana extract
2 cups ripe bananas, mashed (about 3 bananas)
2 cups unpeeled and shredded/grated zucchini
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees f.
Combine flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and baking powder. Combine in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl combine and mix together the oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla and banana extract. Once combined add the smushed bananas, grated zucchini, and walnuts. Once incorporated stir in the flour mixture. Continue stirring until fluffy and incorporated. Prepare two loaf pans by spraying lightly with cooking spray. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 55 minutes or until golden brown.
*You can drizzle the top of the cooled loaves with a little bit of glaze made with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla or a cream cheese frosting.
