Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini Bread

If there's one thing that many of us tried out hand at during peak quarantine it was likely baking a banana bread. You may have felt like you've tested them all, but this banana bread recipe is a game changer, we swear!

Featuring our NEW Just Plain Nutty Cashew Butter as well as secret hidden veggie (spoiler alert, zucchini!) this fluffy, moist and nutritionally-dense banana bread recipe is one you'll be going back to time and time again. 

Oh and did we mention this bread is free of flour (yay, gluten free!), oil and refined sugar. Easily make this banana bread vegan friendly with our coconut yogurt and sweetener recommendations, too! The flavor and texture make for a perfectly moist slice any time of day!

1 c banana, mashed
1 c packed zucchini, shredded and drained
1/3 c dairy-free chocolate chips
