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!

This 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!

How to make Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

  • Preheat oven: To 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan and set aside.
  • Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Combine wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, both sugars, greek yogurt and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Make batter: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold gently. Do not over mix. Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
  • Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool: Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Take the loaf out of the pan and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Serve: Slice bread and serve! I like serving this bread with some butter, nutella or peanut butter on top!
  • Store: This bread can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 days or frozen up to 3 months!

Tips for 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.
  • I always leave the peel on the zucchini. The peel has tons of nutrients and fiber.
  • I use my food processor to shred my zucchini. A couple pulses and it’s done! It’s much easier than grating!
