When I think of August, I immediately think of blueberries and zucchini. Both are very plentiful this time of year. I do not have enough room in my garden to grow zucchini (each plant takes up a bunch of room) but my parents grow it and so do some friends I know. This often results in having a ton of zucchini and figuring out what do with it it all. If you go to the farmer's market this time of year, you will find a ton of zucchini for super cheap because once it starts growing, it grows like crazy.

As for blueberries, my family often goes blueberry picking in August. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, the blueberry farm near my parent's farm closed so we could not go there anymore. When we went on vacation to Ludington, MI last year, we had to go blueberry picking because the West side of the state of Michigan is well known for its blueberries. They were so, so good!

I wanted to make this easy blueberry banana zucchini bread as a way to use up some of this delicious summer produce when you have too much (or if it just sounds good and you go to the store for all of the ingredients, that works too!). I used whole-wheat flour to make it more nutritious and it works out really well. This bread is very low-fat for those of you who may be trying to watch your fat intake. It is so moist and delicious- you will love it!

    For this recipe, I used Purely Inspired Organic Protein 100% plant-based nutritional shake which worked well in this recipe to give a boost of protein and nutrients. What I like is that this protein is not too sweet and it does not take over a recipe. The protein mix is dairy, gluten and soy free. Flavors include French vanilla and decadent chocolate. Each serving has 20 grams of protein, 7 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar and is 130 calories. It contains an organic fruit and veggie blend with spinach, broccoli, flax and blueberry. It contains a blend of proteins including organic pea protein and organic brown rice protein.

    1. Ahh I love banana breads! I shared a recipe on my blog this summer, but didn't think to add zucchini and blueberries to it. Will definitely be giving this a try :)
