Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Recipe

You got zucchinis? I have got a chocolate chip zucchini bread recipe for you.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Recipe

This uses up 3 medium zucchinis! I know people have too many zucchinis in August and this bread will freeze well.

Adding zucchini to baked goods makes them moist without using butter or oil. Zucchini has magical properties! But, you still have to use some oil and sugar to make it taste good and not end up rubbery.

I added my favorite chocolate chips as well.

I promise that I am not sponsored by the Nestle Toll House Artisan chocolate chip collection (but maybe I should reach out to Nestle). I LOVE these. The flavor and texture is different and unique and I like them more than Ghiradelli.

Obviously, if I am using chocolate chips - this zucchini bread is more of a dessert item. If you are looking for some lighter baked goods check out my zucchini breakfast muffins and healthy banana blueberry oatmeal muffins.

To grate the zucchini in no time, I break out my Cuisinart with the grater wheel.

If I haven’t sold you on a Cuisinart by now - I probably can’t. This is always being used when I am cooking because it saves me time and I can put it in the dishwasher. Chop, grate, puree…. All people who cook at home should have one!

This recipe calls for 2 loaf pans -8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2 size. If you don’t have these, use whatever pans you have. The variation in size and materials is CRAZY. Check out this guide guide to loaf pans to help you navigate the madness.

Fill up the pan you have about 2/3 full and watch the time on baking.
