Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

A great way to get children to eat their veggies!

This gluten-free double chocolate zucchini bread is the perfect way to get your children to eat more vegetables! It is delicious, easy to make and it freezes well. This bread is moist with a rich chocolate flavor and chocolate chips throughout. You can make loaves or muffins, and you can choose to dust with powdered sugar or leave it plain.

Many zucchini bread recipes call for you to take an extra step and drain the moisture from the zucchini; in this recipe, no draining is needed.

You can use any commercially available 1:1 gluten-free flour blend with this recipe if you want, or make your own with one of my copycat recipes.
