  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Stir the vegetable oil, sugar, and zucchini into the eggs.

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; stir into the zucchini mixture until combined. Fold the coconut and chocolate chips into the resulting mixture; pour into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I make this into muffins as it always cooks a little more evenly for me. Also, I mix about 1/4 cup sugar and about a teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle on top before baking. :) It's so good!! Read More

This bread is pretty good and easy to make. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour and the texture of the bread wasn't too heavy. I would probably add some cinnamon to the mixture next time for added interest. Read More

This is a wonderful bread! I used 1 1/2 cup of all purpose and 1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour to make it more healthy. It also needs more moisture so to add 1/2 cup applesause and 1/2 cup of butter milk made it even better! Read More

I have tried several zucchini bread recipes lately. Most did not turn out. This one did turn out but 1 tablespoon of baking soda was too much. The loaf did rise well but it had a very soda like taste to it. My kids devoured it though even my picky eater that will not eat anything that looks like it may resemble a vegetable. I dropped my zucchini into the food processor and processed until it was in very small pieces. It was much faster than grating the zucchini. Read More

This lovely bread is not too sweet and ideal for enjoying with your coffee. The only change I made was to use one cup of regular size chocolate chips. Next time I would add vanilla extract because I thought it was missing a little something. Also despite squeezing the moisture from the zucchini the baking time for me was inadequate and I needed to add about 10-15 minutes more. With all zucchini breads I always put parchment paper on the bottom and grease and flour the bread pan for ease in removing it from the pan. Overall a nice bread and an excellent use of zucchini from your garden. Read More
