I love zucchini. It’s my favorite vegetable. I love it grilled, sauteed, fried and I’ll even eat it raw. With that said, just like any food, I can grow tired of it after a while. We’ve been having a lot of zucchini lately so I wanted to do something a little different with the remaining two I had left in the refrigerator. And since I finally found my loaf pan (missing for a year and half – searched everywhere only to find it in the cabinet it was supposed to be in), I decided to make chocolate chip zucchini bread for the first time.
The recipe I used was this one from Skinny Taste because it got rave reviews for being extra moist and low in fat. And I’m so happy I tried it out. It came out so moist with the perfect amount of sweetness from the dark chocolate chips.
The first thing I like to do is gather all my ingredients on a tray. This eliminates going back and forth to the pantry and keeps everything neat and within reach.
This was my first time shredding zucchini. Dan had a couple inappropriate comments during this picture.
My favorite ingredient – dark chocolate. The original recipe doesn’t call for dark chocolate specifically, but that’s the only kind of chocolate I work with.
And even though I usually add cinnamon to everything, I refrained from adding it this time. Next time I will add a little though.
I put the bread in the oven set to 325 for 50 minutes. When I pulled it out the first time it still wasn’t quite done in the middle so I put it back in for another 5 minutes.
When it was done, all of the edges were nice and golden brown.
I let it cool for about an hour.
It came out great, very moist with the perfect amount of density.
