I’m not sure whether I should call this bread, cake or brownie… it’s too moist and delicious to be called bread but too healthy to be called cake or brownie. You wouldn’t suspect that there are actually two whole (!!) zucchinis hiding in there. At the same time, there’s no refined sugars and no butter, instead I used honey and colza oil (which is highly underrated in my opinion). You can enjoy this cake/bread guilt-free! So roll up your sleeves and let’s do this!
And always remember, it’s all about the quality of your ingredients, so make sure you use real honey (preferably from a local beekeeper) and premium dark chocolate. Trust me, you’ll taste the difference.
Super Healthy Zucchini Chocolate Bread

- 80 g colza oil
- 2 eggs
- 160 g flour (I used spelt)
- 30 g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 zucchinis finely grated
- 3 tbsp oat milk
- 100 g best qualitiy dark chocolate chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease loaf pan and set aside.
Mix honey, eggs and oil together in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Add to your honey, egg and oil mixture.
Carefully add grated zucchini, chopped chocolate and oat milk.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf tin and bake for about 50 minutes.
