Dark Chocolate Zucchini Bread Coconut Glaze – Recipe for moist chocolate zucchini quick bread topped with a coconut glaze. The recipe makes a sweet homemade loaf that’s perfect for summer.
If you know me at all by now you know I’m a huge bread fan and a chocolate fan. So when I can combine the two I’m pretty much in heaven. And my thighs know it.
Last year I made this awesome double chocolate zucchini bread and fell in love. I love zucchini but with this one I was pleased that you couldn’t see and taste huge clumps of zucchini. It made me want to make it over and over again.
So this year I decided to bring it back in a powerful way with the yumminess of coconut. Huge coconut fan too. I know you’re wondering. ‘OK. What doesn’t this girl like?’ That would be…oh geez. Why aren’t I coming up with anything?
That would be this bread. And it is AH-mazing! If you like chocolate and coconut you’ll love this for sure. It’s sweet simple and perfect for breakfast or snack.
Hey, I just said you could each chocolate for breakfast. Maybe I should at least be getting a virtual high-five or something! But I’ll settle for the fact you’re reading this. Thanks for being here!
Have a great day! Hope it’s filled with good food and your favorite people around the table.
Til we meet and eat again,

- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

- 2 cups shredded zucchini gently squeezed
- 1 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup powdered confectioner's sugar
- 2 Tablespoons coconut milk
- 1/4 cup sweetened or unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly grease an 8" loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, oil, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth.
Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined.
Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the bread for 55 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (until a toothpick comes out clean).
Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a cooling rack.
For Coconut Glaze:
In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and coconut milk. Stir until smooth. If necessary add another drop or 2 of coconut milk to desired consistency or if you'd like it thicker add a bit more confectioner's sugar. Drizzle over warm bread. Cool bread completely before slicing.
