  • 1/2 cup brown sugar not packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini about 1 large zucchini
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Generously grease a standard loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the vanilla, egg, and applesauce. Transfer this into the large bowl and mix until a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the zucchini using as few strokes as possible.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. Do not over mix.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared loaf pan and bake in your preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool before serving.


Bread should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator because it will start to get soggy at room temperature. It can also be frozen and thawed.
