Z IS FOR ZING
Desserts and baked goods often get a bad rap because they’re generally made up almost entirely of carbs. The majority of the population is afraid of carbs because they associate carbs with weight gain among other unwanted ailments. While that might be true for some carbs, not all carbs are created equally. We’re here to show you how to make a delicious chocolate zucchini bread that is “full of carbs,” but includes half of those good carbs our body needs and half of the ones that give all carbs a bad name.
Preheat oven 325°F.
In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, applesauce, almond milk, vanilla extract, and flax egg. Stir to combine.
In a separate mixing bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir to combine.
Add dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and stir until they are combined. Add in shredded zucchini, chocolate chips and coconut and stir to combine.
Lightly grease a large loaf pan and pour mixture in. Place in oven and bake for 75 minutes. The bread will be done when it is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
Makes 1 large loaf.
