Whole-Wheat Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread

So one of my clients gave me a RIDICULOUSLY big zucchini. Enormous. Like an elephant trunk. I wish I took a picture of it. So what to do with this unholy piece of vegetable? At first I would cut it up and roast or fry it…but then I was still left with half of the zucchini (I would probably measure it at 2 feet). So I say to myself…why not bake something you’ve tried before? Whole-wheat chocolate chip zucchini bread, of course! I got the recipe from here and tweaked it. And I may have added a few dashes of things to make it more Falllike. This is one delicious and healthy recipe! Let’s get to it.

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Baking Time60 minutes


  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a bread pan
  • First off, let’s peel and shred that darn zucchini. Remember you only need 2 cups worth, so don’t get too crazy

And that’s really it! The zucchini adds a wonderful texture to the bread. This is one great way of tricking your kids into eating zucchini by hiding it in this beautiful bread! Make sure to let cool for a little bit before serving, I know, it’s hard. Pretty simple recipe and instructions, perfect for leftover zucchini. After the first day, put in the fridge to keep the zucchini from going bad. Use this recipe to stay hungry and fit!

    I made zuchinni bread earlier in the Summer (which I still have some frozen, now that I think about it) but now I am wishing I had added chocolate. This sounds great!

    oh my gosh….drool! I want that. Unfortunately with about a month left of the primal challenge…I have to say NO. But you better believe I will be making that afterwards!
