Cinnamon Streusel Zucchini Banana Bread Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

We’re firmly in the middle of zucchini season around here. We’ve been grilling it, making zoodles, and, of course, baking with it! Last year we made a zucchini carrot cake bread (complete with a cream cheese frosting!) that quickly became a favorite!

When I went into the kitchen to use up a zucchini that we had picked awhile ago, I had every intention of making another loaf. And then I saw two very sad bananas sitting on the counter. So my plans changed and I decided to make a zucchini banana bread!

Cinnamon Streusel Zucchini Banana Bread Recipe

I looked at a couple of my banana bread recipes and ended up taking my carrot cake banana bread and switching up the spices and swapping out the shredded carrot for shredded zucchini.

I also left off the cream cheese frosting and added a crumb topping from these blackberry raspberry coffee cake muffins. The result of the mashup of these recipes ended up in this cinnamon streusel zucchini banana bread!
