I only made half a batch but I still used 3 bananas (I didn't have any zucchini on hand) so to kind of compensate, I chopped a Fuji apple into pretty small cubes and threw that in. Yes, it didn't taste like banana/zucchini bread anymore, but it tasted almost like a great apple pie in bread form somehow! It was great!
There was too much sugar in this recipe... I read the previous reviews and only used the brown sugar and no white sugar and there was still too much. I would still use less.
I didn't have craisins, so I added some raisins instead, and threw in some extra cinnamon and a little nutmeg just for flavor. Substituted applesauce for the oil and added in some extra to increase the liquid content, and also added about 2 tbsp of flaxseed as suggested in a previous comment.
To make the flour component healthier, I used the spice grinder (cleaned out first) to grind up the appropriate amount of old-fashioned rolled oats into whole grain oat flour. It only took a few minutes, and didn't give the cake/bread the odd taste that whole wheat flour can give it.
