One thing I am sucker for is a yummy and homemade Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread, especially one that is extremely chocolaty and super moist! (nothing worse than a dry bread, am I right?). And if you know me by now, I really love sneaking veggies into my baked treats, which always makes me feel better about indulging when I am able to add some veggies to the mix.
This bread is a perfect dessert or snack to make during the weekend and enjoy throughout the week. You can let it sit out on the counter covered for up to a few days, or you can store it in the fridge, if you prefer your bread cold! I will say though, it usually doesn’t last more than a few days anyways, as it is EXTREMELY addicting and DELICIOUS.
Another great thing about this recipe is that it is made using Gluten-Free flours (Oat and Almond Flour) as well as Dairy-Free milk (Cashew) and it is Naturally Sweetened using (Maple Syrup). You can also make this recipe Vegan by using (Flax Eggs) instead of eggs. These simple swaps, make this bread more nutrient dense and less inflammatory (like many baked goods tend to be).
I cannot wait for you to make this scrumptious bread! When you do, please leave me a comment below or tag me at #healthymommamanda.
