Low-FODMAP Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Low-FODMAP Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread  /  Delicious as it Looks

OK, this should be the last zucchini recipe. At least for a while. I'm not going to lie. I know this recipe is for bread, but really, it's more like cake. Chocolate cake. You can't even taste the zucchini. Instead, the zucchini helps this bread retain moisture and tenderness.

This is probably my husband's favorite of the recipes I've made recently. He takes it to work with him to have as a morning snack. I eat a slice with my coffee. We are both happy. I mean, it's chocolate, how could we not be happy with that? We've also been serving it as a treat at night. Put a slice in a bowl, heat it up a little in the microwave, then put a scoop of lactose-free vanilla ice cream on top. What a treat that is!

Either way you eat this bread, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  1. Wonderful recipe, thanks for putting it out there! I made it with a mini-loaf pan. It filled 4 loaves, and only needed 45 minutes in the oven.

    1. Glad you liked it and thanks for the comment!
