Whether you’re a fan of zucchini or not, this bread will satisfy your craving for chocolate any time of day. This vegan double chocolate zucchini bread makes an excellent breakfast, snack, lunch or even dessert.  Of course, the chocolate chips make it even more decadent.  My boys do not enjoy zucchini on it’s own. But, when I bake it into a quick bread they can’t get enough!

 

 

is Quick Bread really quick?

First, let’s define what makes a quick bread quick. Quick Bread is any bread that contains a leavening such as baking powder or baking soda that allows immediate baking once it is mixed.

So my answer would be, yes! However, nothing is quick enough if you are hungry. I love making quick breads, such as my vegan double chocolate zucchini bread and my vegan chocolate chip banana bread

Anyone that has ever made a yeast based dough knows that it takes skill and patience.  I love my sourdough starter too, but it takes time and preparation. That’s the freedom that a quick bread lends, no patience required (other than the 50-60 min bake time).

Some more examples of quick breads are:

 

Cranberry Ginger Chia Muffins

 

vegan protein mini muffin bites

 

dairy-free almond scones

 

As you can see, they make terrific breakfasts, snacks, lunches or desserts. Typically sweet and made with a particular flavor composition in mind. You can feed a hungry crowd fast and easy. Or just yourself, not that I’ve ever done that. Unless, you count the “one slice for you, two for me” rule, that I occasionally implement.

Go make vegan double chocolate zucchini bread before summer is gone for 2018!
