Gluten Free Zucchini Bread is a fabulous afternoon treat. Try it with a cup of tea!
Classic zucchini bread has always been a favorite of mine. Growing up I remember going in to the garden at my grandfather's house and helping him pick zucchini from the garden. He would show me which ones were ready to be harvested and which ones needed a little more time.
We would return to the kitchen where my grandmother would help me up onto a step stool to wash our green bounty of zucchini. My grandfather then showed me how to carefully grate the zucchini that would soon be turned into bread. I remember thinking that vegetables in a bread seemed like such a strange notion. We measured and mixed and then I waited for this intriguing bread to emerge.
From my first warm bite of this glorious bread, a lifelong love was formed. I've made my grandfather's zucchini bread countless times over the years but this time I decided to give his recipe a new twist. The addition of chocolate takes this Gluten Free Zucchini Bread to a whole new level. Moist, fudgy, gluten free bread, with little pockets of melted chocolate chips for a chocolate spin on classic zucchini bread.
Zucchini, you've never looked so good! With all the vegetables in there, you could almost call this gluten free zucchini bread health food. And let’s not forget that dark chocolate is heart healthy AND high in antioxidants.
Told ya this was health food!
Ok, so maybe not quite, but with vegetables, dark chocolate and being gluten free, it's looking pretty good to me. This gluten free, chocolate twist on classic zucchini bread is definitely a new favorite for me.
