  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). To create flax eggs, combine the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes to “gel up.” In a large bowl, whisk together the banana flour, tapioca starch, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Grate the zucchini by hand using a cheese grater. Peel and dice the apples into small pieces and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the bananas, milk, vanilla, maple syrup, nut or seed butter and prepared flax eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, add the zucchini and apples and stir to combine. Don’t overmix. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake the bread for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the top of the bread is nice and golden.
  4. Allow the bread to cool before slicing. Store covered on your counter for up to 3 days, alternatively, you can slice and freeze it for later!
