Chocolate Zucchini Bread

It seemed, just a few short months ago, like every talk show and social media strand had a story about recipes that would help you sneak vegetables into your kids' favorite foods. Ha! Ha! little person--gotcha--you've just ingested the equivalent of a healthy salad alongside your fishstix and tater tots. Here's the cool thing about this chocolate zucchini bread recipe from Curry Girls Kitchen--you won't need to sneak anything past anyone--they'll be clamoring for it. SO go ahead, practice kitchen transparency and tell them it's got good stuff in it, then dare them not to love it...

Dry Ingredients: Mix together well, and set aside.

  • 1 Cup Flour (gluten-free will work, too)
  • ½ Cup Cocoa (If you have cocoa powder, that works too)
  • ¼ Cup Coconut flour (for high altitude)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Wet Ingredients: Blend together well in a large bowl.

  • ½ Cup applesauce
  • 1 extra large egg or 2 small eggs
  • ½ Cup brown sugar or coconut sugar

½ Cup Cane sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Grease loaf pan with coconut oil, ghee, or butter.

Mix together all dry ingredients. Blend together all wet ingredients. Slowly add dry to wet.

Last: Stir in

1 ½ Cups grated zucchini (dark green best, but any squash will do)

1 Cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Check after 30 but remember chocolate chips can fool you… try not to determine doneness if, when you insert a knife or skewer, it comes out wet.  Feel top of loaf for firmness too. Bread will be moist. This recipe also works well if made into muffins; makes a dozen muffins plus a mini loaf.
