Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Recipe

September 13, 2023 2 Comments

Do you have zucchini? I have a chocolate chip zucchini bread recipe for you.

This uses 3 medium zucchini! I know people eat too many zucchini in August and this bread will freeze well.

Adding zucchini to baked goods moistens them without using butter or oil. Zucchini has magical properties! But you still have to use a little oil and sugar so that it has a good flavor and is not rubbery.

I also added my favorite chocolate chips.

I promise I’m not sponsored by Nestlé Toll House’s Artisanal Chocolate Chip Collection (but maybe I should contact Nestlé). I love these. The flavor and texture are different and unique and I like them better than Ghiradelli.

Obviously, if I use chocolate chips, this zucchini bread is more of a dessert. If you’re looking for lighter baked goods, check out my Zucchini Breakfast Muffins and my Healthy Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins.

To grate the zucchini in no time, I break up my Cuisinart with the grater.

If I haven’t sold you a Cuisinart yet, I probably can’t. I always use this when I cook because it saves me time and I can put it in the dishwasher. Chop, grate, puree…. Every person who cooks at home should have one!

This recipe calls for 2 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2 loaf pans. If you don’t have these, use whatever saucepans you have. The variation in size and materials is CRAZY. Look at this guide bread mold guide to help you navigate the madness.

Fill the mold you have about 2/3 of its capacity and observe the baking time.
