Step away from spiralizing zoodles for a day to bake this Chocolate Zucchini, Raisin & Nut Bread...
A super chocolatey, chip-filled zucchini bread treat!

There’s no need to re-invent the wheel when zucchini bread tastes this good. Moist and flavorful Chocolate Zucchini, Raisin & Nut Bread is a great way to use up zucchini when you’re trying not to let any go to waste!

If you love chocolate and have a surplus of zucchini on hand, this throwback recipe, Chocolate Zucchini, Raisin & Nut Bread from my baking archives back in “The Country Gazette” days of my publishing career is the perfect treat to satisfy any chocolate craving you might have while using up more of the nutrient-rich zucchini squash that’s so abundant this time of year.

What to L♥VE about this zucchini bread...

What you’ll love even more is that this chocolate zucchini bread recipe is a super nutritious treat. The raisins provide a delicate sweetness and fiber to the bread and help replace the need for tons of refined sugar. For staying power, walnuts add a little crunch and boost the heart-healthy fats, fiber, and protein – but if walnuts aren’t your thing, go for pecans or almonds they’ll be just as good.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up a bit.

While I’m all about Zoodles, the name given to noodles made by spiralizing zucchini squash, there are times when you just need to switch things up a bit when summer’s most abundant bounty calls for a little something slightly more “Carb-O-Licious.”

Cue up this Chocolate Zucchini, Raisin & Nut Bread.

So with the help of our grandchildren, we stepped away from spiralized zucchini recipes for a day to use an old-fashioned grater to make this Chocolate Zucchini, Raisin & Nut Bread.

After grating the zucchini the old-fashioned way, we folded it into a flavor-packed quick-bread batter studded with chocolate chips, raisins, and walnuts.

The result is this extra-moist chocolate zucchini bread perfect for slicing and serving for breakfast, lunchbox treats, or for an on-the-go-snack to get you through the day.

Equipment

  • Bread Pans
  • Large Mixing Bowls
  • Box Grater, Hand Grater or Food Processor (with a grating disk)
  • Utensils (Measuring Cups and Spoons, Rubber Spatula, Whisk)

Ingredients
 
 

Shop the G-FreeDeliciously Wildtree Store!Wildtree.com/gfreedeliciously!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF
  • Grease and flour two 4 x 8-inch bread loaf pans and line with parchment paper, cutting the short sides to fit and cutting the long sides so that the parchment extends over each side of the pan about 2-inches.
  • Using the large holes on a shredder-grater, grate the zucchini (leave the skins on, but remove the seeds).
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl until light and lemon-colored; add in canola oil, sugar, vanilla extract, and mix until smooth. Stir in grated zucchini.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Stir the flour combination into the zucchini mixture.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips, raisins, and chopped walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350ºF for about 1 hour until the bread is firm to the touch and pulls away from the sides of the pan. A toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves should come out clean.
  • Transfer the pans to a wire rack and let cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes, carefully lift the loaves with the parchment onto the racks to cool completely before slicing to serve.
  • Save uneaten zucchini bread by wrapping it in plastic wrap, then storing in the refrigerator up to a week. To freeze, first, wrap the bread in plastic wrap, then wrap tightly in foil before placing in a freezer-safe zipper bag. [1]

Notes

[1] Slice the zucchini bread and place each slice with waxed paper wrapped on each side before packing to freeze. By doing it this way, it’s easy to remove a slice at a time to warm in the microwave and enjoy it at any time!
