Here is a simple recipe for a chocolate zucchini loaf with a couple of modification
So if you also have an overabundance of zucchini ( or find a good price at the farmers
market ), this recipe is moist and will freeze well if there is no one you know who
would like a, warm from the oven, slice or loaf to nibble on.
chocolate zucchini Bread
You will need:
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and gather your ingredients. Centre yourself and let
go of anything that takes your focus off the next few minutes. Deep breath in,
remembering the people you are making this for and the generous reasons you are
sharing your time and energy, slowly exhale. Repeat if needed.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl, making sure that no clumps of cocoa, brown
sugar or baking soda are left.
Combine the grated zucchini, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix ingredients together. ( If you
choose to add the wet ingredients into the dry bowl, I would suggest cracking the eggs
and mixing them first, much better than breaking them into the dry ingredients.)
Mix only until just moist. Being a quick bread recipe, mixing too long can create
great peaks on the top of your loaf.

minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool a bit before removing from the pan.
Because this loaf has a strong chocolate flavour, it is great for substituting bean
based gluten free all purpose flours.
Also the batter can be easily made into cupcakes instead or poured into an 8 x 8 pan
for a simple cutting cake, good for take to work or school lunches.chocolate zucchini
( You will need at adjust your baking times accordingly.)
Try changing the vanilla to rum extract or adding chocolate chips either into the
batter or on top before popping in the oven. This is a quick and easy way to avoid
thinking about icing.
