Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread – Rich and chocolatey bread that uses all of that summer zucchini. You will never know there are veggies in there!
Baking with zucchini is one of my favorite things to do as soon as it starts coming in the garden. This classic Zucchini Muffin recipe has been a staple in our house for years. But I like to mix it up too!
Chocolate and zucchini go so well together, these Chocolate Zucchini Muffins have quickly become a favorite as well. So why not try zucchini in a rich chocolate zucchini bread as well!
Zucchini bread is kind of a classic staple, but what about double chocolate zucchini bread? Cocoa powder makes the bread chocolate-y, then it is studded with chocolate chips! If your plants are going crazy like mine, then you want to print this recipe now, so you can make it right away!
This chocolate zucchini bread recipe is sweetened with just honey. There are chocolate chips in there to make it sweet as well, but it is not on overly sweet bread. So you don’t have to feel guilty about having a slice for breakfast or with your coffee for a snack.
I have done a lot of zucchini recipes over the years. Some sweet and some savory. My family isn’t a huge fan of zucchini, so I like to sneak it into things. I think these Zucchini Corn Fritters are one of my favorite things to make each year though. And if you can use fresh corn with it, even better!
Zucchini makes all of your baked goods super moist and tender. It is mostly made up of water, so it your treats always come out extra delicious when you use it!
This chocolate zucchini bread bread is so easy to throw together. It is rich, dense, and chocolatey. It makes for a great snack, dessert, or send it in the lunch box. My son especially likes it if I warm it up for him, and the chocolate gets all melty. You can not taste any zucchini in there, and you can’t really even pick out any green flecks, so you could easily pass this over with the pickiest of eaters (mine is right up there). If you are worried, you can peel your zucchini before you shred it, and then no one will ever know!
If you do have lots of zucchini and aren’t sure what to do with it, it works great to freeze it. Just grate it up, squeeze out the liquid, and store in 1 or 2 cup portions. Then you can have fresh zucchini bread or this double chocolate zucchini bread all winter long!
