Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread {Recipe}

If you haven’t already noticed by your overflowing gardens or the particularly green farm stands, we are in the thick of zucchini season. The thick of it! Okay, maybe it is dwindling down some – but there is still SO MUCH out there to be had!

I have been lucky enough to have some kind neighbors hand me a bunch of zucchini over the fence for the last couple of weeks. Some I have been shredding and freezing and the rest I have been grilling, and making into zucchini bread.

Last night we had some dear dear (AWESOME) friends over to see the house and play and eat. I had a bunch of zucchini and wanted to make some bread with it but wanted to spruce it up a bit and make it a little fancier. So, I tried my hand at a double chocolate version tweaking the recipe I generally use a bit. It turned out great and was a hit! Now I just need to figure out how to let H know that zucchini bread won’t always be chocolate from now on;)


Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread


2 1/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is a great nut free brand)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 2 large bread pans.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
3. In a medium bowl, whip together eggs and sugars. Add vegetable oil and vanilla.
4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until combined. It will still be a bit dry.
5. Incorporate zucchini and chocolate chips. Zucchini will moisten batter.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for ~45-50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
