Summertime is prime zucchini season. Whether you are growing it in your backyard garden or buying an armload from your local grocery store, now is the best time to enjoy this seasonal squash.
Whether you are using your electric spiralizer to make zoodles for a low-carb dinner or experimenting with different zucchini boat recipes, there are plenty of ways to incorporate zucchini into your daily routine this summer.
One of the most obvious ways is to make zucchini bread. While we are big fans of the classic recipe, this chocolate zucchini bread is next level. Because everything is better with chocolate, right?
In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Then, using your Hamilton Beach® food processor fitted with the shredding disc (running) add zucchini to the food chute. Your food processor shreds the zucchini in seconds, it’s such a time saver.
In another bowl, use your Hamilton Beach® hand mixer to beat sugar, eggs, butter, milk and vanilla extract until well blended. Reduce the mixer to a low and slowly add the flour mixture. Then stir in the shredded zucchini and chocolate chips. Go ahead, throw in a few extra chocolate chips while you’re at it.
Transfer the mixture to a 9×5-inch pan and bake for an hour at 350 degrees.
This chocolate zucchini bread is truly irresistible. Serve it for a sweet breakfast with a hot cup of coffee or a (secretly) veggie-packed dessert. This delicious bread will undoubtedly trick the kids into eating their vegetables this summer.
