Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Every year the paleo community rejoices when zucchini season comes around. The versatile squash has a wide variety of uses, and it has become a much-loved noodle replacement in paleo meals. There is yet another delicious use for the mild zucchini squash... it pairs perfectly with Paleo Baking Company baking mixes!

We've created a recipe using our Paleo Chocolate Cake and Muffin Mix that allows you to add shredded zucchini for moist, soft, and chocolately bread or muffins. It's easy, it really is.

Just add three cups of grated zucchini and one tablepoon of cinnamon to the dry and wet ingredients. Then mix, bake, and watch your kids gobble up a healthy green vegetable!

The most amazing thing about using zucchini in paleo baking recipes is that it adds an incredibly soft texture and moisture that is hard to beat. Say goodbye to too-dry cupcakes and overly-crumbly cake. Zucchini is here to save the day!


Chocolate and Zucchini? Really?

Yes, really! Believe it or not, zucchini is a very mild tasting vegetable. This fact, along with it's flexible, noodle-like texture, make zucchini a great paleo pasta substitute. It also means that it's perfect for baking. We've added one tablespoon of cinnamon to this recipe to liven up the flavor. Chocolate, cinnamon, and garden-fresh zucchini? Yes please!

You will want to fold the grated zucchini into the batter just before baking. Adding zucchini to the mix before you've combined the other dry and wet ingredients may result in lumpy batter. No me gusta!
