  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Whisk the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Beat the bananas, eggs, vegetable oil, applesauce, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla together in a separate large bowl. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Fold the zucchini, walnuts, and coconut into the batter until evenly combined. Pour into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pans for 25 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Fantastic! This is the best zucchini bread I have ever had. The only changes I made were to only use 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup applesauce, just because I ran out of oil, and added pecans instead o...

Very delicious. I decided to make muffins instead of loaves. (Much easier to serve.) I was perhaps, a little conservative with the wouldn't have hurt to add more coconut and a l...

I've been experimenting with a lot of quick breads lately, and this is the tops! It's so moist, and the kids couldn't get enough of it! I also went light on the white and brown sugars, and use...

5+++ This is fantastic! I used 2 cups WW Pastry & just 1 c All Purpose. Went a bit lighter on the brown sugar & replaced half the white sugar with some Splenda. Used my homemade pumpkin pie spic...
