  • 8 x 4 inch Loaf Pan


  • ½ Cup Flavorless Oil (vegetable, canola or avocado oil)
  • ½ Cup Packed Brown Sugar (light/dark both work)
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup Grated Zucchini
  • 1 ½ Cups All purpose flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 Cup semi sweet Chocolate Chips (or chopped nuts/raisins)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) and grease and line an 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla, together until combined. Now add shredded and blotted zucchini and fold it in too.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg over wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips and fold using a spatula until combined. Pour mixture in the pre prepared loaf pan and bake for about 50-55 minutes. After about 30 minutes I like to cover my loaf pan loosely with aluminum foil to prevent over browning.
  • Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove bread from loaf pan after 5-10 mins and set on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.


Storage Information:
  • This bread will remain fresh covered tightly at room temperature for 3-4 days.
  • Any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • This bread freezes wonderfully for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight or on counter top before slicing.  

Tips for perfect zucchini bread:

  • Always blot your zucchini to get rid of excess moisture from it. This will save your bread from turning extra wet!
  • Brown sugar helps give the bread a ton of flavor, don't sub it with granulated sugar.
  • Generally, chocolate chips do not sink into this batter as it bakes, if you wish you can sprinkle a tbsp of flour to your chips before adding them to batter.
  • Cover bread with aluminum foil loosely to prevent the bread from browning too quickly in the oven.
