Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This Chocolate Zucchini Bread not only is it full of zucchini and chocolate chips, but it's super moist, rich, and delicious! No one will know there's zucchini hidden in there, but this zucchini bread is still decadent and very chocolatey.

  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large eggs
  • ¾ cup butter melted
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups zucchini grated, drained in a sieve to remove excess moisture
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks


  • Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Evenly spray cooking oil in a loaf pan.
  • Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • Mix wet ingredients: In another bowl whisk the egg, melted butter and brown sugar together. Stir in the zucchini. 
  • Combine wet and dry: Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly dispersed in the batter.
  • Bake: Pour the batter in the loaf pan, transfer loaf pan to the oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.



  1. Let the loaf cool fully to room temperature, then wrap it tightly with plastic wrap, and then a layer of foil. This will last in the fridge for about 1 week in the fridge and 6 months in the freezer.
