Quick breads, like banana, zucchini or pumpkin never last very long in our house.  They are such a treat and so dang delicious the whole family loves to devour them as quickly as possible.  This zucchini banana walnut flour bread is no different.  We love that it’s filled with zucchini for some veggies and moisture, banana for sweetness, and walnut flour (which you just grind from walnuts) for staying power.  No added sugar whatsoever! I always feel better eating treat like foods for breakfast knowing they don’t have added sugar in them.  I like starting my day in balance, and personally adding loads of sugar first thing doesn’t bring balance to me, or my kiddos.
