This moist and fudgy Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread makes the perfect afternoon snack whenever you are in need of a chocolate fix. Made with whole wheat flour, zucchini, cacao, and chocolate chips make it the perfect indulgence.
I love zucchini, in fact, it is one of my favorites vegetables, so it is pretty common for me to incorporate it to my salads, main dishes or soups. My favorite recipe is to make Spiralized Zucchini Noodles with tomato sauce and ground turkey, but up until this recipe I had never use it for baking.
Now that I have a toddler at home I try to sneak as many vegetables as possible into his meals. So I decided why not give it a try and add it to my Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread Recipe. I have to confess I was pretty surprised with the result the zucchini does not only add a healthy factor to the bread, but it also helps to make it moist.
How to Make the Perfect Zucchini Bread
The key to making the perfect zucchini bread is to shred the zucchini for this use you can use any grater. I use Oxo Grater and Spiralizer since it comes with plenty of accesories, but any would work just fine.
Once you have finely shredded the zucchini use a paper towel to remove some of the water before mixing it up with the rest of the ingredients.
If you are wondering if you can taste the zucchini on this recipe, rest assured that the only way of knowing this bread has zucchini is if you actually where the one who prepared it. Both the flavor and the texture of the shredded zucchini melt into the bread, creating the perfect texture and sweetness.
