The Myth of Muscle Toning 

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Get baking!

Zucchini is one of my favourite vegetables because of how amazingly versatile it is. I add it into things like rice, quinoa and even savoury oatmeal to add some volume. It can be made into savoury breads or sweet cookies and muffins like this great recipe that I’ve made a few different times. You can play around with the recipe and add protein powder to up your protein intake for the day.

Here is the basic recipe.
Servings: 12 slices
Calories: 175 • Fat: 6 g • Protein: 3.5 g • Carb: 32 g
per slice

Ingredients:

  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (regular whole wheat flour or almond flour would work)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed) (or Truvia calorie free sweetener for less carbs)
  • 1-1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini (not packed)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.

Add chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, mix egg, vanilla, melted butter, apple sauce and zucchini. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.

Pour batter into the prepared 9×5-inch loaf pan

Bake 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and let it cool before slicing.

 

Enjoy!!
