Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
This easy-to-make Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is the ultimate snack bread recipe your family is guaranteed to love. Since we can find zucchini year-round in our stores, I make it at all times of the year. However, I probably make it the most in the summer when zucchini seems to be everywhere you look and my neighbors even drop it off because it grows prolifically in their gardens.
This is a great recipe that is also easy for kids to make. If you have aspiring bakers then I suggest putting them in charge and supervising while they complete each step and get the loaf in the oven. They’ll love the sense of accomplishment that comes from following a recipe correctly and getting their own food on the table.
I love this particular recipe because the loaf comes out moist and tender with a fine crumb. It contains just the right amount of chocolate chips to make it sweet, without overdoing it so it feels like a candy bar. I often pack a slice in lunches or bring the whole thing out to the back yard for the kids to enjoy by the pool. It also tastes amazing when it is toasted on a griddle with a little butter for breakfast.
Print out this recipe and put it in your folder for recipes to make this spring. Once you add it to your rotation, I can guarantee that you’ll never stop making it because it will always be requested. It’s always nice to have a few recipes like these in your back pocket. And, lastly, if it truly becomes a huge hit in your house you can always make several loaves at once and freeze a few. They stay beautifully in the freezer and you can thaw them when you’re ready to enjoy them!
Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
This is a popular snack in our house. My kids always finish the loaf within hours of it coming out of the oven. I make this the most often in the summer when zucchini is growing absolutely everywhere. It’s so good in the morning toasted with a light spread of butter!
Makes 1 loaf Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Add the grated zucchini to the egg mixture and stir until evenly distributed.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture and mix until just combined.
