Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I don’t have any good stories to share that relate to chocolate zucchini bread. So we’ll just get on to this delicious recipe. Yum!

I got this yummy recipe from Nate’s aunt from her mom. She makes it as a cake, but I think bread is cuter. The only thing I added extra to the recipe is the vanilla and more chocolate chips.

  1. Did you mean 1/2 a TBS of vinegar?

    1. Sarah, thanks for noticing that for me. Yes I did mean 1/2 TBS. I fixed the recipe as well, but thanks for pointing it out.

  2. This looks delicious and we have zucchini coming out of our ears! Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! We loved having you join us for Strut Your Stuff Saturday and hope you’ll come back soon! -The Sisters

  3. Can you taste the zucchini? Or is that added to make this “better for you”?

    1. I’m not really sure if you can taste the zucchini. It doesn’t taste exactly like a normal chocolate bread or cake would, but of course it doesn’t taste just like zucchini either. I think its mostly to make it this healthier, but I think it also helps keep it really moist as well.

  4. Loaf pans are different sizes; what size did you use? Thanks.

    1. I’ve actually cooked this in 2 different sized loaf pans, I have a glass pan that is a little smaller and a metal pan that is a 9×5 I believe. Whatever size you have will work, just watch closely for the last few minutes so you don’t burn the bread.
