Banana-Zucchini Bread… Mountain bike ready style

  Blog, Food Blog   0   

From Shannon… Martin fashioned it to her bike for the Test of Metal!


“This gets made pretty regularly at our house and recently helped fuel me while riding in the Test of Metal-it must be good because I’m still not sick of it after force feeding it to myself over the course of many hours…The recipe works as a loaf, or as mini ‘muffins’ that you can shove in your mouth with one hand!
I found the recipe here:

* 1/2 cup coconut flour
* 3/4 tsp. baking soda
* 1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
* 1 tbs. cinnamon
* 4 eggs
* 2-3 Tbs. raw honey or agave nectar (I use 1 Tbs of honey)
* 1 cup shredded zucchini, excess water squeezed out
* 1 ripe banana, mashed

I also add in 1/4-1/2 cup walnut pieces and 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened cranberries…I sometimes add in 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips 🙂 …I think that I’ve also added a couple Tbs of coconut oil before too and it was good – but not necessary.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line a loaf pan with parchment paper; set aside.

Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until there are no lumps.
Pour into pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Mine never seems to be done in this amount of time so count on 45-50 minutes-ish and keep an eye on it…
