This Chocolate Zucchini Breadis deliciously moist and the perfect healthy breakfast or snack to use up your summer zucchini. This quick bread recipe is easy to make with almond flour, maple syrup and bursting with a rich chocolate flavor. It's also paleo-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free with low carb and keto sweetener options.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and line an 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs then whisk in the almond butter, applesauce, maple syrup, coconut sugar, apple cider vinegar and vanilla until well combined.
Grate zucchini using a box grater. Wrap in a kitchen towel, paper towels or a nut milk bag and squeeze well to remove the excess water. Drain and add to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
Place a large mesh sieve on top of the bowl, and sift in the baking soda, almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder and salt and stir until the batter is well mixed. Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips, reserving the rest for topping.
Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
