This bread is perfect for lunch boxes, afternoon tea… pretty much anything! It’s moist (thanks to the zucchini), has just the right amount of chocolatey-goodness, and can be frozen (that’s if it doesn’t get all gobbled up immediately!!).

My Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is naturally sweetened with honey (no refined sugars in this one!!). You could also use rice malt syrup if you prefer. Oooh and the greek yoghurt gives it the BEST flavour! I LOVE using yoghurt in my breads and muffins. Sooo, so good!!

If you’d prefer a plain zucchini bread, you can always leave the chocolate chips out. But please, please, pretty pleeeease don’t!! They give the bread such a delicious flavour and texture. For a healthier alternative, you could substitute them for cacao nibs… but seriously, it’s very hard to beat the good old chocolate chips!!

This Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread needs to bake in the oven for around 40 minutes. I say ‘around’ because every oven is slightly different. I recommend checking it after 30 minutes and then keeping an eye on it. If you find that the top is browning too much, add some foil over the tin. Also, you’ll know that it’s ready when a skewer interred into the middle comes out clean (hehehe actually it may have some oozy gooey chocolate on it… but that’s fine!).

Has anyone made this gluten free? Is it a straight substitution of flour?
