  • 1 teaspoon butter to grease loaf pan
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled or at least softened
  • 2 bananas mashed ~1 cup
  • 1 cup grated zucchini about 1 cup loose, not packed
  • 1 cup grated carrots also loose, not packed
  • 1/4 cup either full fat sour cream or Greek yogurt, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Butter a 9"x5" loaf pan and then dust with flour (I used dark non-stick pan)
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the sugars, eggs, coconut oil, mashed bananas for about 3 minutes on medium speed to fully incorporate and smooth as much as possible. Turn mixer to low and add grated zucchini, grated carrots, sour cream (or yogurt), and vanilla.
  • Fold in flour mixture and just mix until combined. Using a rubber spoon, add the walnuts and scrape down the pan.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake on middle rack for 50-60 minutes (50 was PERFECT) until toothpick comes out clean.
