Chocolate Zucchini Bread | Zucchini Recipes

If you haven’t baked with zucchini before, you’re in for a treat! Zucchini adds moisture to baked goods and as it’s cooking, it breaks down so there are no pieces or chunks when it’s done. Best of all, zucchini is pretty flavorless so you can’t taste it in this delicious healthy treat!

  • How would you make this recipe gluten free?

  • Try that with Hersheys Dark Chocolate powder.

  • Hi Chris! We would recommend swapping the gluten products for gluten-free products. For example, you would swap out the whole wheat flour for almond flour or gluten-free baking flour. :)
