Lightly grease an 8.5"x4.5" loaf pan and preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana and whisk in the eggs, maple syrup, almond butter, melted coconut oil and vanilla, until combined.
Place a large sieve over the bowl and sift in the baking soda, baking powder, almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon and salt and mix until the batter is uniform.
Grate zucchini using a box grater. Wrap the shredded zucchini in a kitchen towel, paper towels or a nut milk bag and squeeze well to remove the excess water. Drain and add to the batter and stir to combine.
Fold in the chocolate chunks or chips. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread it evenly. Top with more chocolate.
Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 35 minutes. Flip out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.
