Anyone who has planted zucchini this year is likely at the point where they have more than they know what to do with (thank Katja for loading us up 🙂 )I feel like it’s a bit oxymoronic to describe a bread recipe as “Double Chocolate.” It’s more of a bread-like dessert. With four cups of shredded zucchini and a cup of whole wheat flour between the two loafs it yields, it ain’t all bad 😉
Ingredients & Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 °F
Then spray two 9×5 loaf with olive oil spray, and set aside.
- 1 cup no-additive, whole wheat flour
- 2 cups no-additive, unbleached flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
Set aside, and in a separate bowl mix together:
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 3 tsps vanilla extract
In a food processor, or with a box grater, grate 3-4 zucchini
- previously set aside dry ingredients
- 4 cups grated zucchini
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips, or more to taste
Split batter between two loaf pans, and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick can be inserted into the middle of the loaf and come out completely clean.

I usually just add chocolate chips to my regular old zucchini bread. This sounds delicious! Now I just need to find somebody that wants to share some of their extra zucchini with me…
yum! I love zucchini bread! I have never made the chocolate variety, sounds so good.
