Summer = Zucchini! We love (yes love) zucchini! Our mouths water for it in the spring and then we can’t get enough of it. Thankfully when it is finally ready to harvest there is a ton to harvest. This chocolate bread is a great way to use it up when you need a healthy treat. Guilt free treats are our favorite!
Not only does this bread have a vegetable in it but it is also made with whole wheat flour, honey and maple syrup instead of sugar and cacao instead of cocoa. It’s wholesome and super tasty! We like to grate the zucchini in a food processor to make it even quicker to whip up.
Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Bread
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 Tbs. vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 2 cup grated zucchini
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup cacao
- 1 tsp. Real Salt
- ¼ tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ¾ cup chopped nuts, we like pecans or walnuts
Combine honey, maple syrup, vanilla, eggs and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat well. We use our KitchenAid for this. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until combined. Pour into two greased bread pans and bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes. Note: This recipe makes small loaves.
