Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread (V, GF)

This Vegan, Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is delicious, easy, and is a ONE BOWL recipe!

Yummy treat with very few dishes to wash after, yes please!

At the very beginning of my interest in cooking (12ish y/o) I thought the idea of using zucchini in baked goods was so strange. That was until one of my mother’s friends brought over a Chocolate Zucchini Cake to a dinner party that was to die for. It was so long ago that I don’t even remember her name, but I will always remember that cake!

That cake is what made me open to and even love the idea of using zucchini in baked goods. One day I will have a perfected chocolate zucchini cake recipe to share with y’all but until then I hope you enjoy this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread!

Using a paper towel or clean kitchen towel, squeeze excess moisture out of grated zucchini. Fold zucchini and chocolate chips into batter.

Lightly grease a bread loaf pan with coconut oil. Then spread batter evenly into pan.

Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when poked into the center.
