Ingredients

  • 4 C grated zucchini
  • 2 1/2 C. all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. 1, Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two 9 X 5 inch loaf pans (or one larger one).
  2. 2. Grate zucchini and set aside. (I used 4 small zucchinis to get the right amount.)
  3. 3. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. 4. In another large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, eggs, butter, instant coffee, almond and vanilla extract.
  5. 5. Slowly add in the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Do not over mix.
  6. 6. Add grated zucchini and chocolate chips and stir just until combined.
  7. 7. Pour into loaf pans and bake for 40-60 minutes (depending on size) or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  8. 8. Let cool. NOTE: Zucchini bread (like banana) is usually better the next day.
