Get the recipe for the best chocolate gluten free zucchini bread! This chocolate zucchini bread recipe uses lots of zucchini and is easy to make. This healthy chocolate zucchini bread uses a 1:1 GF flour blend like Bobs Red Mill or Namaste.

Directions

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step 1: 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a large loaf pan (I used a 9 x 5 Pampered Chef stoneware loaf pan) by greasing the pan with your preferred method.

I personally like to use either the Chosen Foods Avocado Oil spray or to rub a thin layer of coconut oil on the bottom and sides of the pan.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step  2: 

Squeeze out the zucchini. To do this, lay out a cloth hand towel. On top of the towel lay out either a clean flour sack type towel or paper towels.

Spread the shredded zucchini out on the towel. Top it with more paper towels or another flour sack style towel.

Next, roll the towel up from one side to the side across from it. Press down on the roll. 

Carefully unroll the towels, lift the top towel and gather the zucchini shreds and place them in a large mixing bowl.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step 3: 

To the mixing bowl with the zucchini, add 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2/3 cup melted coconut oil, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 4 large eggs. 

Stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until well mixed. 

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step 4: 

In a separate bowl, combine the 2 1/2 cups gluten-free flour mix, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and mix it with a whisk until well combined.

Add the dry ingredients from this bowl to the zucchini mixture bowl and stir well to combine. 

Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step 5: 

Pour batter into loaf pan and bake in 350 (F) degree oven for 60-75 minutes or until a toothpick ed in the middle comes out clean.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread Step 6: 

Allow the zucchini bread to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before turning it out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling completely. 


Enjoy!
