Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Zucchini Bread

Wow, there is a lot going on in the title of this recipe, but don’t let any of it scare you! It’s quite simple to make and incredibly delicious. I actually fooled my friend who came over right after I made it and asked him if he wanted a piece of chocolate bread. Of course he said yes, and immediately said that it tasted like a healthy brownie, only it was really tasty. Honestly, that is exactly how I would categorize it myself: an incredibly delicious healthy brownie!

When I was brainstorming about creating this recipe, I always knew I wanted to make a zucchini bread, but never thought of adding in zucchini until I read about avocado bread. There are tons of recipes for avocado bread, so I figured I would sort of combine the two and mix in some chocolate.

This Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Zucchini Bread Recipe takes about 25 minutes to prepare and about an hour in the oven at 350¬∞. It’s a very dense bread so it requires more time in the oven and a little extra time cooling to room temperature, but I promise every send of making this bread is worth it. It is ridiculously moist and bursting with yummy chocolate flavor, not to mention the fat in it is great since it’s avocado and coconut oil.

If you are looking for a really tasty gluten free bread, look no further! This Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Zucchini Bread is the best!
