Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I'm not sure how all of you are doing with vegan mofo but I'm having a great time!  I've been discovering some wonderful new blogs and having lots of fun reading what everyone is creating.

My friends over at Hugger Food and The Jolly Fox are doing some great posts during vegan mofo.  Hugger Food is doing a theme this year and writing about Cafe Gratitude this month.  I love reading about the new menu items as I haven't been able to get over there for awhile.  The Jolly Fox is posting up some INSANE recipes during vegan mofo that are inspiring and constantly making me want to leave work and go cook.

Ready for cake
I've always had a love for zucchini.  During the summer months they seem to come out of my garden at lightening speed.  I could be wrong but it seems like the neighbors start hiding running from me towards the end of the growing season.  Can you really have zucchini overload?

I'm always looking for new recipes that include zucchini.  Can you hear the squeal I made when I found a zucchini bread with chocolate in it?  I might have even done a little dance!

I've made some great recipes from Color Me Vegan and this is no exception.  It's a pretty simple recipe to bring together and makes two loaves.

Right out of the oven
As with many of the other baked goods I brought this to work and it was inhaled.  I love seeing how much my friends at work are enjoying these vegan treats.  I'd like to say this bread is really healthy because of the zucchini but I'd be fibbing.  Moist, rich and delicious would be accurate.

I've gotten a few requests to make this again which puts a big smile on my face.

Can you blame them?  Look at that bread!
Sinfully rich and good
What's your favorite way to make zucchini?


  1. I love zucchini too, my favourite recipes are both muffin based. There's one in the first baby cakes cookbook & another that I remember Michelle from My Zoetrope blogging about. Yours looks great though & I'll definitely be bookmarking that recipe in my cookbook.

  2. Looks amazing! :) My mom has a non-vegan chocolate zucchini cake recipe that I am looking forward to veganizing for us, so thanks for giving me an extra push with all these lovely photos!

  3. This bread looks amazingly delicious! I've heard a lot of good things about Color Me Vegan. I think it's about time I bought this cookbook.

  4. Thank you for the shout out! Chocolate zucchini bread sounds AMAZING!
