The ultimate Banana bread

The humble banana has long been a friend to the runner.

Want to run in the morning but woken up with a ravenous hunger? The banana will quell the emptiness without giving you a bloat that means you need to wait an hour before heading out the door.

Starving after a run and nothing easy to hand? Spotting a banana in your fruit bowl is like discovering an oasis in the desert.

But it’s not just the banana in naked form that can bring us happiness. If you’ve never swirled up a couple of your ageing yellow friends with a few berries and a scoop of yoghurt to create a glass of smoothie goodness, what’s wrong with you?

Then there’s banana bread, possibly the greatest man-made invention since the wheel.

Our resident recipe genius Addison Labonte has taken your common banana bread recipe and put a twist on it we defy you not to enjoy.

“I love cooking and baking with the seasons,” she says. “There is nothing better than fresh seasonal ingredients!  This Gluten Free Zucchini Banana Bread is perfect for the summer months.  This quick bread is easy, moist, and fluffy.  It's great for a quick and easy breakfast or even dessert!”

We couldn't agree more. Now, what are you waiting for? Here's how to make it.
