Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Bread Recipe

Do you have a ridiculous quantity of zucchini in your garden? I not only have too many zucchini but somehow I can't see them until they are HUGE! Here are some of my zucchini next to my 1 month old:

I clearly have a problem.

Luckily, even though large zucchini are really only good for making into bread, I have found pretty much the best zucchini bread recipe ever. I make it exactly the way the recipe calls for, except I add a bag of Trader Joe's Chocolate Chunks to the batter before baking. And my oh my is it good!


  • 3 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups organic granulated sugar*
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil (I use butter if I'm out of coconut oil)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 bag (approx 10 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks*
*Ingredients that I use when I make my bread that are different than the recipe as written
