  6. Pour the batter into a greased loaf dish and place it in the oven for 55-60 minutes. Check to see the doneness by sticking a toothpick in the middle of the bread. If it comes out clean it is finished, if not bake for another 5 minutes until so.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife along the edges of the bread and pan to help release it from the sides and flip upside down to release from the pan onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely then slice and enjoy!

Enjoy warm, room temp, or even cold. Store the loaf in the fridge while you eat on it so it will keep. This bread is dense and moist and you won’t ever be able to tell there is a sneaky serving of veggies in there.

Dark chocolate zucchini bread is the perfect mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack that won’t totally derail your health goals.

    • Sure! Just do equal subs! Should taste great but just not be chocolate. Swap in a tablespoon of vanilla for the espresso powder. Let me know how it turns out!

       
  4. Going to try this before work today! Do you think I could swap a 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder for a 1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee? Would that get the espresso flavor?

     
  5. How would you do these as muffins? Temperature and timing?
