Chocolate Chip Zucchini Gluten-Free Quick Bread

The flavor in this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is amazing! It tastes just like zucchini bread should taste with a hint of cinnamon and delicious chocolate chips. The texture is moist and As Good As Gluten. 

You may remember back in May I found the best Gluten-Free Quick Bread Base Recipe from Brittany at Real Sustenance. I've been wanting to try other flavor varieties, but haven't found the time since May. Last week, I bought a HUGE home-grown zucchini for 50 cents from a local stand. When my husband recommended I make zucchini bread, I knew this was the recipe I was going to use. It turned out perfectly, and I love that I can make any quick bread variety with one simple recipe!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Gluten-Free Quick Bread
Recipe from: Real Sustenance

·2 cups GF all-purpose flour
·1 tsp xanthan gum
·1 tsp baking powder
·1 tsp baking soda
·½ tsp salt
·¾ cup granulated sugar
·1 tsp cinnamon
·⅓ cup melted butter
·¾ cup milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
·1¼ cup grated zucchini
·¼ - ½ cup chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 330˚. Grease loaf pan and set aside.

Prepare grated zucchini. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients. Mix well; the batter should be fairly thick. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow the bread to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan. Enjoy!
