Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

I am a major fan of a sweet treat that makes me feel healthy because it has a vegetable in it. Healthier Carrot Cake Cupcakes or Fudgy Vegan Chickpea Brownies anyone? No, but seriously I absolutely love them!! This Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is a very classic recipe with a tiny bit of a healthy spin to it. It is fluffy, perfectly sweet & buttery, loaded with chocolate, and trust me you cannot taste the zucchini at all! It would be absolutely perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast. I had it just like that the other day and it was magical!

What you need for this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread?

  • Zucchini: This one is pretty obvious! You of course need zucchini for zucchini bread.
  • Eggs: Eggs for binding and for moisture!
  • Coconut Sugar: This is my absolute favorite sugar to bake with! It is also refined sugar free which I love. You can replace this with a different granulated sugar of your choice if you would like!
  • Butter: You guys know I am all about healthy baking, but I am also all about a good balance! When I made this zucchini bread I felt like going for the real deal, so that is what i did. And let me tell you butter makes this bread crazy delicious!
  • Whole Wheat Pastry Flour: I love this flour!! If I am not making a gluten free treat I almost always use whole wheat pastry flour. It makes a light & soft treat and adds a nice nutritional boost. I haven’t tested for this recipe, but I have found with other recipes that this flour can be swapped basically 1:1 with all purpose.
  • Almond Milk: I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my baking but you could place this with literally any milk you like!
  • Chocolate Chips: Y’all know I live for chocolate so I of course had to put some in my zucchini bread!! I love to use dairy free semi sweet mini chocolate chips.
  • Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, and Salt for lots of flavor!
  • Baking Powder for a little rise!
