Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Add all of the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  • In a separate bowl add the eggs, applesauce, apple cider vinegar, and maple syrup and whisk together.
  • Squeeze the grated zucchini in a nut milk bag or kitchen towel to remove the excess water. Then add the grated zucchini to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until the batter is well mixed.
  • Then add in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips and mix into the batter. Pour the batter into a greased 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan and sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake the zucchini bread for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

  • This is the nut milk bag I use to squeeze the zucchini and I love it. It's great for homemade almond milk as well.
  • For the best gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly chocolate chips, grab yourself some of these
  • If you're overflowing in zucchini you can make several loaves of this bread and freeze it! I recommend slicing before you freeze so you can thaw individual slices and enjoy.
