Equipment

  • 9x9 pan

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 can pumpkin (about 1 - 1½ cups)
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • cups coconut sugar
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground clove
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (any type)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut the stem off the zucchini and grate it into a bowl with a cheese grater. Use the thick cut side. Grateabout 1 cup. In a bowl, combine wet ingredients: eggs, pumpkin, oil, zuchinni and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients together: flour, baking soda, powder, spices,sugar. Whisk together.
  • Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Use a thick spatula to fold togeher. add in chocolate and walnuts. You may need to use hands to mix up mixture and melt coconut chunks if it solifies a little.
  • Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 pan, mix will be thick and sticky. Use a spatula to evenly spread it in pan. and bake on the center rack for about 30 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Let it completely cool before slicing and serving. Try it with a slap of butter!

Notes

* Oven temps vary greatly, I like to cook mine on 325 for longer to get a nice even bake through the center. Be sure to check bread after 30 minutes.
*This bread is great without the nuts or chocolate chips if you prefer a lower sugar/fat content
