Zucchini Bread with Dark Chocolate Chunks

Sometimes chocolate chunks make everything just a little bit better.

Ingredients:

Dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted & cooled
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsps. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 package dark chocolate chunks (1/2 package if you don’t want as much chocolate)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a standard size loaf pan. In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy and then add in the yogurt, buttermilk, oil, sugar, and vanilla. Combine well. Stir in the zucchini and then add in the dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Add in the chocolate chunks. Pour into the loaf pan. Bake for approximately 90 minutes, and due to variance in ovens, I’d recommend you start checking at 60 minutes and do the toothpick test. Bake in additional 10 minute increments, as needed. Once done, remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing.
