Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

This zucchini bread is so moist and delicious, you’d never know it was oil and butter free! It’s a nice way to sneak some vegetables into a tasty treat and you’re also reaping the health benefits of the cocoa powder. Just make sure what you’re using is organic and unsweetened. This recipe could also be used to make muffins, just scoop the batter into lined muffin pans and bake for less time.

 

Quick tip: Don’t let the consistency of the batter scare you...it’s supposed to be very thick!
