Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread is arguable the best way to use your garden zucchini.

This Double Chocolate Zucchini bread is kid-friendly.

Also husband-friendly and pretty much all-people-friendly. 🙂 This chocolate zucchini bread is my husband’s favorite type of zucchini bread.

Personally, I’m torn between this and pineapple zucchini bread. They’re both so good so I usually end up making at least one of each when the zucchini starts rolling in at the end of the summer.

Like cake, but healthier!

The best part about this double chocolate zucchini bread is that it tastes pretty much like chocolate cake but there’s almost 3 cups of zucchini stashed inside. I won’t tell if you don’t!

What’s this double chocolate zucchini bread taste like?

I mean besides being delicious, the texture is also really great.

The outer crust comes out thin and crispy while the inside is moist and so rich because it’s DOUBLE dark chocolate. I mean, is single chocolate ever enough?

Great for breakfast!

Quite possibly the best thing about this recipe is the fact that you can eat a boatload of chocolate and feel pretty good about it afterward. At least I do. 🙂 So I feel completely justified eating this for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

If you like the idea of eating this for breakfast, then you may want to check out my donut version of this recipe here: Chocolate Zucchini Donuts.

If this isn’t the best chocolate zucchini bread recipe you’ve ever tried then please send me your recipe! 😉 Or if you’re not into chocolate as much, try my equally as delicious pineapple zucchini bread.
