Chocolate Zucchini Bread

You can probably tell just by looking at the photos how moist this chocolate zucchini bread is — I don’t even have to tell you! And just look how rich and fudgy! I mean, there’s no way this can actually be low carb, right??

Believe it!!

This keto chocolate zucchini bread is not only way lower in carbs than traditional baked goods, it’s also crazy tasty and pretty darn nutritious too!

We started with coconut flour for its fluffy texture and combined it with shredded zucchini to make this keto chocolate bread incredibly soft and moist.

Then we added lots of chocolate flavor AND chocolate chips (sugar free of course!)

This keto chocolate chip zucchini bread is perfect for breakfast, with coffee, dessert…oh who am I kidding?? There’s never a wrong time to treat yourself!! Especially with less than 7 grams net carbs for a big ol’ slice!

Is Zucchini Keto Friendly?

Yes! One medium zucchini contains about 4 grams net carbs, which is why it is a popular choice with keto dieters. Another plus to zucchini is its versatility — allowing it to work in a wide variety of recipes.

When lightly cooked, zucchini has a texture that resembles pasta, but with way less carbs! Shredded zucchini brings moisture to baked treats (like this keto chocolate bread!)

Though there are other vegetables that are lower in carbs, I’m in the camp that the nutritional value in most veggies is worth a couple extra carbs.

Zucchini provides a healthy dose of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B-6, among other nutrients.

Is this Chocolate Zucchini Bread Gluten Free?

Yes! Coconut flour is gluten free.

What About Dairy Free?

Yep! I’m lactose intolerant, so I’m always on the lookout for dairy free recipes. Sometimes that can be tricky with keto, where cheese is a favorite ingredient in many low carb recipes.

There is no milk, butter, etc. in this recipe. Also, the Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips that we used are vegan, so no dairy there either!
