Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Is the zucchini in your garden starting to overwhelm you? Well, after you try this double chocolate zucchini bread, you’ll be glad of your extra stash of zucchini!

I made this recipe a few days ago and I couldn’t believe how good it was. It’s similar in the taste to the double chocolate banana bread I posted last year, but reworked for zucchini. The bread is full of intense chocolate flavor, and the melty chocolate chips in the middle take this bread over the top.

The texture is slightly dense and very moist, and you can’t actually taste the zucchini at all.  It doesn’t take long to make, and your house will smell amazing while it’s baking! I’ve shared this recipe with lots of people, and each time they can’t believe how good it is. This is by far one of my favorite ways to eat zucchini. 🙂

You can bet I’ll be making this bread again – in my mind you can’t go wrong with double chocolate anything!

  2. Zucchini loaf is honestly one of my favorite quick breads! LOVE this!

  3. I just made some double chocolate zucchini brownies this week! They were amazing!

  4. This looks delicious! I will try to make it tonight as I was planning on zucchini bread soon from the garden. I have to add that I was thrilled that it only called for a bit of honey instead of the several cups of sugar that quick breads often do! I usually have to rework recipes to use honey, which isn’t a big deal, but it’s nice to have no guesswork.

  5. This looks amazing! Wishing I had some zucchini to make it!

  6. I feel like I can already taste this bread, it looks marvelous!!

  7. This recipe is just what the doctor ordered! Can I make muffins with this recipe? I figure if I make them look like cupcakes my handsome husband will be fooled in to eating them!
