The BEST Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread


– 1 1/2 c. shredded zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini) – 3/4 c. brown sugar – 1/2 c. vegetable oil – 2 eggs – 1 tsp. vanilla – 1 c. all-purpose flour – 1/2 c. cocoa powder – 1/2 tsp. baking soda – 1/2 tsp. salt – 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips


Step 1: Line pans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x5" loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside. Pro-Tip: It's super helpful to use binder clips to help secure the paper to the pan. When pouring in the batter, the paper will stay in place. Remove clips before baking.

Step 2: Shred Zucchini

Shred the zucchini using the smallest grater. Press out any excess water from the zucchini through a fine-mesh sieve.

Step 3: Mix wet and dry ingredients

Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately in separate bowls.

Step 4: Mix batter & add chocolate chips

Mix together the wet and dry ingredients together. Use a rubber scraper to mix the ingredients well. Batter will be thick. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Step 5: Add batter to pan

Pour the batter into lined pan. Top the batter with additional chocolate chips.

Step 6: Bake

Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes.

Slice & Enjoy!

Remove from oven, and let cool to room temperature. Slice and enjoy right away.
