It’s that time of the year where I have more zucchini than I know what to do with. Every time I go out to my garden, I swear I have another zucchini. I can’t complain though, I love it! There are so many different things you can do with zucchini but what’s more classic than Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread? There are hundreds, if not thousands of Zucchini Bread recipes out there but I have to say, I think mine is the best! It’s moist, chuck full of zucchini (which you really can’t even detect) and loaded with chocolate chips. It is the ultimate summertime treat if you grow zucchini!
If you are looking for a healthy, refined sugar-free Zucchini Bread, you’ve come to the wrong place because this recipe may be loaded with zucchini but it still has all the good stuff like sugar and oil! It’s a treat for sure but with the amount zucchini that’s in it, you still feel like you’re getting in a good serving of vegetables so you don’t feel as bad eating it!
Tips & Tricks:
- The easiest way to shred zucchini is with a food processor with a shredding attachment. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a large cheese grater and shred by hand.
- If you have never squeezed out the excess moisture from zucchini, I like to use a cheese cloth or a really thin dish towel and put all the shredded zucchini in the center of the towel and then make a knapsack out of it and squeeze all the extra moisture out of the zucchini into the sink and then dump the squeezed out zucchini into the bowl of eggs/sugar.
- If you are not a fan of chocolate, you can substitute the chocolate chips for chopped walnuts.
