    I love chocolate zucchini bread. I followed the recipe except made it with 4 eggs and a tablespoon of coconut flour. Stirred in walnuts once in the pan. It's moist and chocolatey, well worth making.

      Confused! It’s called zucchini bread - zucchini’s are green but the ingredients say yellow squash?

      • 2 years ago

        Same thing. You have green and yellow zucchini (also called squash ir in the squash family).

      Very egg forward and too moist. May try again with less egg

        I made mine in a fancy decorative Bundt pan. Looks great, tastes great.

        Confusing!! In England I would assume that a Zacchini would be known as a Courgette over here; however the recipe refers to a grated squash which is clearly yellow!!! I’d love to try this but no idea whether I’m buying a Squash or a Courgette ??? HELP

          Courgette, In the US we say zucchini, the green ones. Sometimes the options don't show properly.

          Unlike yellow squash, yellow zucchini (sometimes called "golden zucchini") doesn't taper at the neck. The only difference between yellow zucchini and green zucchini (besides the obvious color difference) is yellow zucchini is slightly sweeter in flavor. www.

          Use the Courgette. The recipe says squash but it is actually a green zucchini. Hope this helps.

          In the US a zucchini is known as a green squash. The author is using the terms as interchangeable. So when you read squash... it's the zucchini/courgette

          Yes that doesn’t make sense. You’re right. A zucchini is a couchette and is green.

        Did reduce sugar and added xantham gum but other than that, this is absolutely delicious.

          When I told my kids what ingredients were in this delicious bread, they decided it was revolting, then proceeded to eat the entire loaf!!!!!! Go figure.

            Super moist. Cut sugar in half and eliminated vanilla but still sweet enough for me! I ate it with nut butter which added another layer of flavor

              I failed to read the directions. I threw everything in the processor and turned it on. Then I read put the zucchini in last so pieces of squash remain. Well this was not my story. It came out very runny and I thought well we'll put it in oven and see what happens. I cooked at 350 for 60 minutes and it is delish. It's more like a chocolate bread loaf very moist and yummy. I'd say it's fool proof! Enjoy.

                I had a similar problem. Threw all the dry ingredients into the food processor, then read I was to add the zucchini, which was supposed to be grated. But in order to grate it, I needed the food processor…which was now full of the dry ingredients!

              I cooked mine on 1:10 that’s how I eliminated being super moist

                I add 1 scoop of protein powder as well and bake them in silicone muffin trays. Works out to a 2oz portion + 3 grams of protein per muffin.

                  Mine was way too moist. Almost soggy. But the toothpick came out dry. And I did squeeze the water out of the zucchini. I'd cook it longer, but if the toothpick was already dry, how can I tell that it's dry enough? Also, I used monk fruit sweetener and it still had that horrible fake sweetener taste/aftertaste. Is there any fake sweetener that isn't revolting? :-)

                    I used swerve. Doesn’t have that back taste some of the sweeteners have.
