Vegan Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Indulge in the perfect blend of moist and fudgy with our vegan chocolate zucchini bread! This delectable treat is not only egg- and dairy-free but also incredibly flavorful. Grated zucchini acts as a binder while adding a delightful moistness, making this chocolatey bread naturally (and deceptively!) vegan. Satisfy your cravings guilt-free and create one for yourself today. 

Here's what you will need:

  • 480¬†g¬†(4¬†cups)¬†all-purpose flour
  • 84¬†g¬†(1¬†cup)¬†Dutch-process¬†cocoa powder
  • 4¬†teaspoon¬†baking powder
  • 2¬†teaspoon¬†baking soda
  • 1¬†teaspoon¬†salt
  • 400¬†g¬†(2¬†cups)¬†granulated sugar
  • 212¬†g¬†(1¬†cup)¬†brown sugar
  • 200¬†g¬†neutral oil
  • 2¬†teaspoon¬†vanilla extract
  • 600¬†g¬†grated zucchini,¬†about 2 medium zucchinis
  • 226¬†g¬†(8¬†oz)¬†chocolate,¬†roughly chopped + more for topping

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a¬†9x5 loaf pan¬†with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the sugars, oil, and vanilla, and use an electric mixer to beat until fully combined.
  • Next, mix in the dry ingredients. The batter will be very dry and crumbly.
  • Lastly, use a rubber spatula to fold in the grated zucchini and chopped chocolate until fully combined and evenly wet.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, then top with more chopped chocolate.
  • Bake the bread for 10 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 350 degrees F and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow the bread to cool for a few minutes in the pan before transferring it to a wire rack completely.

NOTES

  • Before adding the zucchini to the batter, it will be very dry and crumbly. This is normal! The zucchini will add the perfect amount of moisture so this bread will bake up moist and fudgy!
  • Be sure to note that this bread should be baked at 400 degrees F for the first 10 minutes, then at 350 degrees F for the remaining time. No need to open the oven door, just lower the temperature!
  • In simple recipes like this one, high-quality ingredients can make or break the recipe. For the best overall outcome, from texture to taste, use high-quality flour, cocoa powder, and chocolate.
