Banana Zucchini Bread Muffins


This banana zucchini muffin recipe is from my mother-in-law, and it is the only way to get my husband to eat bananas and my kids to eat zucchini. I bake them into muffins because they get eaten faster than a loaf, but it's great either way.

36 muffins


  • 2 over-ripe bananas, mashed

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini

  • 1 cup applesauce

  • 3 large eggs

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ cup oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 36 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. Mix together bananas, white sugar, zucchini, applesauce, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a sifter and sift over banana mixture; add oats and mix until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool muffins completely in the tins before removing.


This recipe can also be made into 2 loaves. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, then turn off the oven and let bread sit in the oven for 15 minutes.
