Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Grate the zucchini in a bowl and set aside.
  • Combine dry ingredients in another mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat eggs; add oil, sugar, vanilla, and zucchini in with the liquid.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and beat on low with a mixer.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and pour into a 9 x 5 inch loaf tin (greased or lined with parchment paper). Top with more chips if desired. Make a small cut lengthwise about ¼ inch deep in the center of the bread.
  • Bake for about 55 minutes minutes OR until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The bread should be still moist inside. It may need 5-10 extra minutes, depending on your oven.
  • Let the bread sit in the loaf tin for 10 minutes before taking it out and leaving on a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

TIPS:

Every oven is different as far as temperature goes, so I recommend checking the bread towards the 45-50 minute mark. It is better to check it early on than to overcook it.
Zucchini: 2 cups grated with the liquid. The batter in the end should be thick but not sticky like cookie dough (for example). It is thick but thin enough to spread it out easily in the loaf tin.
Flavor: the bread is moist and for a nice chocolatey flavor, I recommend adding more chocolate chips to your liking. I usually add ¾ cups or even up to 1 cup. The bread is not overly sweet, as is. I sometimes use ½ teaspoon of salt instead of 1. To intensify all the flavors definitely add 1 teaspoon of salt.
Cocoa powder matters: good quality chocolate powder really does improve the flavor. It should be intensely dark in color  rather than lighter one.
