  • ½ cup (119ml) vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup (150g) packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups (approximately 152g) shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup (170g) chocolate chips plus more for the top


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x4-inch or 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
  • Add oil, both sugars, eggs, and vanilla extract to a large bowl. Stir until smooth.
  • Mix in cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Stir in flour, mixture will be thick. Add zucchini and stir until combined – mixture will get looser and more pourable after stirring in zucchini. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips.
  • Bake 50-60 minutes (9x5-inch pan) or 55-65 minutes (8x4-inch) pan, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the loaf.
  • Cool before slicing or removing from the pan. Store covered for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.



  • Be sure to shred your own zucchini using the large holes of a box grater. Do not drain or squeeze liquid out of the zucchini – you need the moisture to keep the bread moist.
  • Sugar: I like the mix of brown and granulated but you can omit the brown sugar and use 1 cup granulated if you prefer.
  • The 8x4-inch loaf will bake more domed, while the 9x5-inch pan will be flatter.
  • Feel free to add in ½ cup chopped nuts with the chocolate chips after stirring in zucchini.
