  • Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread
  • Ingredients
    • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
    • ¼ cup canola oil
    • ¾ cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • ⅔ cup dark cocoa powder
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini)
    • 1 ⅓ cup whole wheat pastry flour
    • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp. dark chocolate chips

    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8x5 inch loaf tin and set aside. 1. In a large bowl, cream together butter, oil and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one at a time until completely combined. Stir in the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt and baking powder. Fold in the grated zucchini, and then add the flour and ½ cup chocolate chips to the bowl. Stir until just combined. 1. Transfer the batter to the loaf tin and spread out using a spatula or the back of a spoon. Top with 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until the bread has risen and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean. 1. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
