A wholemeal chocolate loaf with all the goodness of zucchini, dark choc chips and apple sauce. A soft, moist loaf with just the right amount of sweetness.
Heat oven to 180 deg Celsius.
Grease a loaf tin and line with baking paper.
In one bowl add all the dry ingredients, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Mix to combine thoroughly.
Lightly beat the egg with a fork in a small bowl.
In the second bowl add the maple syrup, apple sauce, egg, vanilla and the cooled melted coconut oil. Mix together and then add the bowl of dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients and mix till combined.
Sqeezwe out any liquid fromthe grated zucchini and add to the mix along with the choc chips and mix together.
Pop into the prepared loaf tin and sprinkle a few more chocolate chips on top. (just for fun).
Bake in the oven for 40-45 mins. To see if your Chock Chip Zucchini Loaf is cooked, pop in a skewer and when it comes out clean it should be done.
When cool pop your loaf into an airtight container to store. The loaf is quite delicate and may break up a bit when slicing, but the taste far outweighs the crumbs.
Swap out the dark choc chips for milk choc ones instead.
