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!
(this Zucchini Bread post from 2014 recipe has been revised with new photos)
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?
