Can you ever really go wrong with zucchini bread? I don’t think so! My mom used to make the BEST zucchini bread growing up, only hers wasn’t chocolate and it had walnuts in it, but I just remember the texture being super moist. I emulated that when creating this double chocolate zucchini bread, all while keeping it vegan.
This is my second post with Oatly, and I’m super excited to bring you a chocolate-filled recipe that can be eaten for breakfast, dessert or both. Oatly is my milk of choice these days because it can easily be used in place of regular dairy milk and it has a neutral taste to it. Plus, it’s nut-free!
WHY THIS CHOCOLATE CHIP ZUCCHINI BREAD IS SO GOOD
- It’s made with cocoa powder AND chocolate chips
- It’s super moist
- It comes together in under an hour
EASY ZUCCHINI BREAD RECIPE
Zucchini bread is a classic recipe, but some might argue it’s even better with chocolate. Double chocolate zucchini bread gives traditional zucchini bread a run for its money, and this recipe itself has the perfect texture. I’d say it’s a bonus that it’s made with flax eggs and dairy free milk, making it suitable for most dietary preferences.
Enjoy a slice of bread for breakfast, or even as an after dinner treat with a cup of Oatly. ….honestly, the perfect combination.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP ZUCCHINI BREAD
- Prepare the flax eggs by mixing two tablespoons of flaxseed meal with five tablespoons of water. Do this step first so that your eggs are ready by the time you need them
- Combine the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients
- Add the zucchini: I tested this recipe twice, once with the moisture squeezed out of the zucchini and once with the zucchini placed directly in with the rest of the ingredients. In the end, it didn’t make a difference, so there’s no need to squeeze moisture out of the zucchini; simply add the shredded zucchini into the bowl
- Stir the chocolate chips in by hand: semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips are preferred
HOW TO STORE ZUCCHINI BREAD / CAN ZUCCHINI BREAD BE FROZEN?
Wrap zucchini bread tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you don’t think you’re going to eat it within three days, simply place it in the refrigerator. If you’re making zucchini bread ahead of time and want to freeze it, wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil or in a plastic bag and freeze it for 2-3 months.

Made this into muffins- cooked about 30-35 minutes (not sure why it took so long). Very good! I even cut sugar to a heaping 1/4 cup and it was still very tasty.
Happy to hear this worked as muffins and that you enjoyed them!
What can be used in ace of flax seed?
My daughter is highly allergic to eggs and flax seed.
Can she do chia seeds? You could try using those instead.
Really great recipe! Everyone loves it.
This is so tasty!! The perfect cake to indulge on a rainy Sunday afternoon 🙂

I cannot find my loaf pans for the life of me. How would I change cooking time/degrees for muffins?
Hi! I haven't tried this myself, but the muffins will bake a lot faster... I'd keep the oven at 350 and check them after 25-30 minutes. Let me know how they turn out!
What else can I use instead of flax seed?
You can use 2 eggs instead of flax eggs
Mine is in the oven! The dough looks and smells delicious!! My son is gluten, egg and dairy free so i made with GF all-purpose flour. thanks so much for the recipe!!❤❤❤
How did it taste??
I am sure the chocolate will make zucchini bread much tastier. Your cake looks so moist and fluffy, I think I will give the recipe a try.
