Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Two versions of zucchini bread just aren’t enough. Plain zucchini bread is good, but chocolate zucchini bread with chocolate chips is irresistible.  Eating your veggies was never so easy.double chocolate zucchini breadThe chocolate chips turn into molten pockets in the bread, and this bread is so chocolate-y you’d never realize there was even zucchini present.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread is made with both cocoa powder and chocolate chips to make it an extra chocolate-y serving of vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups grated zucchini

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter two bread pans.
  2. Cream the eggs, butter and oil. Stir in the sugars until fluffy.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well mixed.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips and zucchini.
  5. Split batter evenly between two bread pans. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a loaf comes out clean.

Tips/Options

I subbed in apple sauce for the butter for an overall healthier version of the zucchini bread.

Freezer instructions: let the zucchini bread cool completely. Place in a gallon freezer bag and freeze zucchini bread for up to 3 months.
