I recently came across this recipe on I had bananas that were browning on my counter, plus you know me and zucchini, I still have plenty of it. So I figured why not try it, Banana Zucchini Bread. It would use up two things I need to do something with. I must say it turned out great.

Now, I am still partial to my the banana bread recipe that I always make. However, this was another good way to use up all my zucchini. This time I did add the nuts called for in the recipe. I love banana bread especially when it includes nuts.

The recipe also calls for self rising flour and I just happened to have a small package of it in my pantry. I had used for another recipe a little while ago. So this recipe also helped me to use that up too. However, it is simple to make your own self rising flour. I have included how to do that in the notes of the recipe.
