One of the blog sites I follow is the chubby vegetarian (chubby vegetarian).  It is a great foodie site.  He had a recipe for chocolate zucchini bread or what I call a loaf.  It looked delicious.  Both he and the site where he got the recipe from say that a mouthful of this is to eat and moan.  I agree.  It is a really good recipe and it is quite chocolately from both the cocoa and chocolate chips.  This loaf won't last long before it is inhaled!!!

I made a few modifications.  For the sugar I used three quarters of a cup of splenda and I used chocolate chunks instead of chips.

Ready to go into the oven.

The first sample.

Chocolate Zucchini Loaf


1.5 cups Shredded Zucchini
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup high quality Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
Dash of salt
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips


In a mixer, combine the oil, sugars and vanilla. Mix in the eggs and shredded zucchini. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly add this dry mixture into the wet mixture. Beat until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Place the batter into a greased 9x5x3 loaf pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 50-65 minutes, or until done.
