 It may still be hot as all get out outside, but baking season will be here before we know it! I get asked almost weekly if I have a recipe for gluten free zucchini bread, or gluten free chocolate zucchini bread, so I finally decided to try my hand at it. I love the way this bread turned out… a gluten free zucchini bread that’s lower in sugar than a lot of other recipes and still tastes AMAZING!!

  • 3 large zucchini
  • 1 3/4 cups Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk of choice I use almond milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus extra for topping


  • Wash and dry your zucchini. Chop them into chunks and puree for 60 seconds in a food processor.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag and squeeze as much water as you can out. (This will take a few minutes. Just keep squeezing. You’ll be left with a very thick green paste.)
  • Measure out 1 cup of the zucchini paste. If you have any extra, you can discard it or save for a smoothie! Set the 1 cup zucchini paste aside.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and coconut sugar. Mix briefly to fully combine.
  • Next, add the eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla extract, and zucchini mash.
  • Mix on medium speed for 30-45 seconds until combined.
  • Stir the chocolate chips in by hand until mixed through.
  • Pour the batter into a parchment lined loaf pan.
  • Bake for 60-75 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
