A delicious way to bake with zucchini – this gluten free chocolate zucchini loaf cake is sure to become a favorite recipe!
Don’t you just love it when the garden explodes with zucchini? One day you’re admiring your zucchini blossoms, and the next you’re staring at a big pile of zucchini, wondering what to do with it all.
I love to bake with zucchini – zucchini bread, muffins, cake, and even cookies sometimes! I decided a chocolate loaf cake made with garden fresh zucchini sounded like a good idea. It’s rich, chocolatey, and comes together very easily.
I found this recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Loaf Cake by Summer, and I knew I had to try it, although I did make a few changes. I used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, but of course you should be able to use your favorite blend, or go ahead and use regular flour if you don’t need to be gluten free.
This chocolate zucchini loaf cake is:
- a healthier dessert that uses maple syrup and coconut sugar
- an easy recipe to whip up
- a perfect way to use up summer zucchini
- gluten free, with a dairy free option

*Note: I actually forgot to add the chocolate chips! So unlike me, to forget to add chocolate of all things, but I was baking with my two year old, and it was somewhat chaotic. It was delicious without them, but I think the chocolate chips would have added a little more richness.
