Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread


Yes, there are four cups of zucchini in this recipe. It may seem like a lot, but trust me, it’s just perfect. You can put all of the chocolate chips into the batter, but I like to keep some for sprinkling on top. This also makes great muffins and mini loaves, just be sure to adjust your baking time accordingly.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans, or one 9x5 pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

In another large bowl, combine sugars, eggs, melted butter and vanilla.

Add the flour mixture to the sugar/butter mixture and stir to combine. Do not over mix.

Fold in grated zucchini and 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Spread batter in prepared loaf pans and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over top

Bake for 40-60 minutes (depending on size) or until an inserted knife comes out clean. If necessary, cover with foil during the last 10-15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.
