Move over banana bread, chocolate zucchini bread is ready to take over the “healthy sweet bread” space! Whenever I make this chocolate zucchini loaf, I think: I should absolutely make this more often. It’s easy, relatively quick to make, and uses basic baking ingredients that you will likely already have in your pantry.
If you love banana bread, this is a fun way to switch things up, sneak in some greens, and get your chocolate fix!
Zucchini In a Sweet Bread?
If you’ve never had zucchini bread and you’re a skeptic about it, this vegan chocolate zucchini loaf will definitely change your mind.
For those who aren’t so sure, zucchini bread does not actually taste like vegetables. Zucchini is naturally sweet and otherwise very mild in flavor, so it just ads volume, a touch of sweetness, and a little bit of texture. Plus, the chocolate from the cocoa powder and from the delicious chocolate chips really masks any veggie flavor from the zucchini disappear.
This vegan zucchini bread is moist, sweet, cakey, and oh-so-chocolaty. I personally love the double chocolate flavor with the added chocolate chips. If you really want to, you can omit the chocolate chips and still have a chocolaty loaf if that’s more chocolate than you normally like (but let’s face it, most of us love to indulge in all things double chocolate).
