This Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is my all-time favorite grain free, dairy-free baked treat, and it’s LOADED with chocolate chips for a little something extra! It’s moist, with just the right amount of sweetness. This recipe is made with shredded zucchini, almond flour, honey, eggs, and spices, and topped with dark chocolate chips. It’s easy to make, healthy because we are using real-food ingredients, and it’s truly out-of-this-world delicious.
I don’t know about you, but I think the absolute best way to eat your veggies is when they’re baked into a bread that’s also loaded with chocolate. Just kidding! Or am I?
Yesterday I got asked on my Instagram stories if I *really* like vegetables or just use them in my recipes because they’re healthier. And the truth is… I love my vegetables! But when they’re prepared right. My motto is, if my kids wouldn’t eat them, then I won’t eat them either. Plain, mushy, tasteless vegetables aren’t my jam. But, when they’re seasoned to perfection and cooked right? I will eat them all day long!
But, of course, as much as I love my veggies I also love my desserts, so anytime that I get to combine the two is a win-win situation for me, especially when it’s in the *perfect* combination. Maybe I’m biased, but I truly believe that I’ve cracked the perfect combo here, and my chocolate chip zucchini bread is seriously the best you’ll have. It’s light, fluffy, chocolatey, and naturally gluten-free. Run, don’t walk and go make this today!
This chocolate chip zucchini bread is full of mostly pantry ingredients, like almond flour, honey, chocolate chips, and spices! The best part about this bread is that it also leaves so much room to get creative. Want to add nuts? Go for it! Swap out the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips? Sure! Even though I’m someone who loves to follow recipes exactly as they’re written, I want to encourage you to break out of that box with this one. In this case, do as I say, not as I do! Haha.
Like most of my recipes, this chocolate chip zucchini bread couldn’t be simpler. I would go as far as to say that it’s almost fool-proof! With just a few simple ingredients and a few simple steps, you’ll have the most delicious chocolate chip zucchini bread waiting for you.
I recommend storing this loaf in an air tight container and keeping it in the refrigerator. I always feel like loaves left out on the counter don’t stay fresh for more than two days, and any time I make something with almond flour, I want it to last as long as possible. It’s expensive!!
You can also freeze this loaf if you’d like, and it will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. I do recommend slicing the loaf into slices before freezing, and adding a piece of parchment paper in between each slice to keep the slices from sticking together. And by doing that, you can pull out one slice at a time, as you are ready to eat it!
