  • 4 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, we use unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 TBSP cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2-3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Shred zucchini until you have 4 measured cups of zucchini. Pat with a paper towel to remove excess moisture if needed. 
  • Whisk together applesauce, oil, eggs and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.
  • In a large bowl whisk together remaining dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix just until combined and no white streaks appear. Fold in zucchini and mini chocolate chips, if using. 
  • Divide batter into TWO greased loaf pans and bake at 325 for roughly 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle is clean. ( If the tops are getting too brown place a piece of tin foil on top.)
