Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

When your garden gives you tons of zucchini make zucchini bread!

There’s nothing better than zucchini bread. Especially when it’s loaded with chocolate chips. I played around with this recipe a few times. Less flour, more zucchini, different oven temps and baking methods. I ultimately settled on a batter with less flour, a higher oven temp and more zucchini! I also added greek yogurt for a super soft and moist bread. You would never guess there is zucchini in this!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini BreadThis chocolate chip zucchini bread is AMAZING! Not too sweet, soft on the inside and crisp and crunchy on the corners (the end piece is my favorite!)

Perfect for breakfast or dessert!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

A couple tips I’ve found when making zucchini bread:

  • Don’t over mix the batter. Just like cakes and cookies over mixing will lead to a tougher bread.
  • Keep the oven door shut. Continuously opening the oven door will cause the bread to sink.
  • Make sure bread is fully cooked before taking it out of the oven. If the bread is undercooked it will sink in the middle.

    To save a few calories I decide to cut down on the sugars, oil and chocolate chips (1/3 cup each) and the loaf turned out amazing! So amazing I made a second loaf to freeze! With 12 slices, each serving turned out to be about 200 calories.

    I just made your recipe and it was delicious! I didn’t have Greek yogurt but was able to substitute it for sour cream and I couldn’t tell the difference. I also substituted semi-chocolate chips for dark chocolate. It tasted great! Thanks for sharing. This will be a family favorite!
