Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread is moist, fudgy, and delicious! It’s hard to believe there is zucchini in this bread! 

Summertime brings an abundance of zucchini around here. This year I did not grow my own as I had to kill my crop due to that dang squash bug! However, when zucchini is in the season it’s rather cheap. I love this vegetable for so many reasons but mainly because it can cross over from sweet like in this Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, to savory. 

So we are officially in a heatwave down here in southern California, and let me tell you this heat plus being 8 months pregnant is awful! I woke up at 6 am to bake this Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread bread, haha, I had to beat the heat! Trust me this bread is worth it! Its amazing, the entire family loves it! And the best part is it is refined sugar-free and made with healthy zucchini. 

How to make Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread 

This bread comes together so quickly and easily. To keep it gluten-free sub with your favorite 1:1 gluten-free flour. To make the bread vegan use a flax egg ( 1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 2.5 tbsp water) in place of the egg.  

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 5 bread pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick spray. 
  • Start by mixing together in a medium bowl your wet ingredients, zucchini, egg, apple sauce, maples syrup, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract.
  • Next add in your dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder,cocoa powder, and stir till just combined. 
  • Gently fold in your chocolate chips. 
  • Transfer batter to your prepared baking dish and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let bread cool at least 15 minutes before serving, enjoy!
