Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This gluten-free chocolate zucchini bread is so decadent, rich and delicious, but still very easy to make. I like to use gluten-free flours in this recipe because they allow the chocolate flavor to come through, but all-purpose flour will work just fine if you prefer.

The same goes for the coconut oil — if you don’t any, you can substitute another neutral oil (like avocado or light olive oil).

And, if you don’t have the mini loaf pans, feel free to bake the batter in one large loaf pan – just leave it in the oven for an extra ten minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

However you decide to make the delicious chocolate zucchini bread, I hope you enjoy it!

Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread


  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup special dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup grated carrot or zucchini
  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (+ extra to sprinkle on top)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease three mini loaf pans (approx. 6” x 3” x 2”) with coconut oil.
  2. Place all dry ingredients (flours, cocoa powder, baking soda and powder, salt and brown sugar) in a large bowl. Mix to combine.
  3. Add bananas, grated carrot or zucchini, coconut oil and egg. Mix to combine and until well-blended. Add chocolate chips and mix again. Batter will be very thick.
  4. Divide batter into three greased mini loaf pans. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top, if desired. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. Once cool, run a butter knife around the edge of the loaf to loosen it from the pan. Serve warm and enjoy!
