Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread – it’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for! This bread is vegan, gluten-free & nut-free PLUS down right deliciously addicting!
The other day I purchased a couple really nice looking zucchini squash with the intention of turning them into pasta with my spiral maker. As you can probably guess from the photo above, I opted for using them to make bread instead. Sure the pasta would have been a whole lot healthier, but it wouldn’t satisfy our sweet tooth nearly as well.
I’ve actually been making this recipe for years, but it’s been revised a few times to fit our changing food restrictions. It went from dairy, egg & nut-free, to vegan and over the last few years, I started making it gluten-free too. Although Xander’s allergies do not require the removal of gluten, my daughter’s belly benefits from being gluten-free. And since this is one of our favorite recipes, I HAD to share it with you all!
I’m actually eating some right now with my coffee while I’m writing this!
Doesn’t it look yummy?
Watch how easy this zucchini bread is to make.
