Zucchini Chip Bread

Oh my! All these zucchini's popping up and not all that much interesting to do with them. And this is a great way to get your kids to eat veggies. Disguised! But what's a quick bread without chocolate chips?

  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or other type of sweetener)
  • 8 drops liquid stevia (or increase sugar by 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups gluten-free blend flour (you can use the blend from here)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • optional: chopped pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 loaf pans or 4 small mini loaves. You can also do muffins if you chose. 
Mix ingredients up to eggs and blend well. I used an electric mixer. 

Now sift all the dry ingredients together. 
Combine into wet ingredients and mix well. 
Fill pans 3/4 of the way full. 
Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out dry. 
Eat and be merry!
