Check out my Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. Made with zucchini, cacao butter, and coconut nectar. It’s delicious, super easy, takes only 6 ingredients and 2 easy steps to make. Of course it’s vegan and gluten free.
Recently I had a big chocolate craving. I have a lot of recipes with which I usually satisfy this: my Banana Bread Brownies, or the Vegan Buckeye Brownies. Of course there are so much more dessert recipes to discover here.
But even if you know all these things are delicious, you know and feel you wanna go try a new route. So friends, I hope you all have a craving for this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread.
It’s satisfying for all chocolate lovers. And who’s not in? Perfect for breakfast, snackable, cravable, healthy, easy, mouthwatering, drool- worthy, addictive, the perfect sweet, smells incredibly, chocalately, hey you must make this for real.
Ready? You are going to love this! First prepare a baking dish with parchment paper or simply use a bit of coconut oil and grease the pan. Now head over to a bowl and combine all ingredients.
Garnish with the rest chocolate chips, bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.
After those 30 minutes keep the oven running and take the bread out of the oven. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 30 minutes. This steps is important. Otherwise the chocolate chips on top will burn and get too dark. That’s not really delicious. Believe me you don’t want that.
Please make sure to meet the baking time precisely. I tested the baking time and it’s absolutely accurate. So a shorter or longer time won’t work.
This Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread also makes a great snack not only for breakfast. If you have any doubts, believe me, you won’t taste the zucchini.
The zucchini makes it just a little bit healthier and nourishing for you. The bread has the perfect sweetness thanks to coconut nectar which works so incredibly amazing in this recipe. The cacao butter adds a lovely buttery flavor, being neutral.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m in love with coconut oil, but I really want to create a buttery flavor, which I can only achieve with cacao butter.
This has the same flavor like a Chocolate Chip Bread made with a lot of butter and eggs, but in a plant based way so everyone can enjoy and make this no matter what diet you’re following.
You can see it in the pictures it’s also amazing to enjoy with some peanut butter and some banana slices on top.
I also enjoy my Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread with some raspberry jam and blueberries on top. As you can see, I sprinkled some hemp seeds on top.
It’s just a personal preference. I really like the nutty touch in contrast to the sweetness.
See and know be creative, enjoy no limitations here, dream big.
Get excited about breakfast, dessert or for snack time with my Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
Just take a look at the ingredients you see and get the picture. It’s not only delicious and satisfying, it’s also healthy. That’s the big deal here. Dark chocolate is high in nutrients like magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, and also has a good amount of fiber.
This super food star is also high in antioxidants, great for lowering blood pressure, a blocker against the sun and more. I recommend to check this article “7 Awesome Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate“.
But that’s not all we’re getting here. Another star in the show is the zucchini. Low in calories it’s good for heart health, and also so versatile. Can you imagine you can substitute zucchinis as a low carb delicious pasta alternative?
Last but not least cacao butter is also a star of the game in this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. It reduces inflammation, improve skin health, makes a great shaving cream for us guys, or the ladies.
For real just melt it in warm water and get shaved and hydrated at the same time.
Love seeing all your remakes. See you soon, cheers, Florian.
