I have so much zucchini I don’t know what to do with it, then I was reading some comments on this older recipe and remembered how much we all loved this so I remade it and updated the photos. Madison was one when I first played around with this and loved it then, bit I wasn’t sure how she would feel seeing small green specs (she doesn’t like zucchini) in her bread now that she’s five, but she loved it! Give this a try, I’m sure you’ll agree, and bonus, a perfect way to get your kids to eat zucchini. And yes, you can also make these as muffins although the cooking time will be less.

Low Fat Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

A super moist zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chips in every bite. Made with a whole wheat flour blend and lots of apple sauce in place of butter for results that are moist and delicious.

Ingredients:

  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (I used unbleached)
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (regular whole wheat flour would work)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1-1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini (not packed)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add chocolate chips and gently mix to combine.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix egg, vanilla, melted butter, apple sauce and zucchini. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  5.  Pour batter into the prepared 9×5-inch loaf pan. Bake 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and let it cool before slicing.
