One of my favorite ways to use up an abundance of zucchini is to make this dark chocolate chip zucchini bread recipe.
The zucchini and the coconut oil in the bread make the texture rich and moist, and the chocolate is so decadent and delicious that is seems more like a chocolate bread than a zucchini bread, so it’s a great recipe for converting vegetable-haters and picky eaters too!
I decided to call this recipe a dark chocolate chip zucchini bread because it doesn’t really look like your typical zucchini bread recipe. You can’t see the zucchini at all (even though there are two cups of it in there), and the color is dark like the color of chocolate cake.
I found this recipe in with my grandmother’s collection of old recipes, and I believe it was one of my great aunt’s recipes. The original recipe calls for raisins and nuts, so you could certainly use those in the recipe if you like, but my mother and I have always substituted chocolate chips in the recipe due to our incurable chocolate addiction 🙂
