Chocolate Zucchini Protein Loaf




Do you ever crave zucchini bread and brownies at the same time? Well, problem solved! This Chocolate Zucchini Protein bread recipe combines the best of both worlds!

This recipe is great for all diets like vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, keto, soy-free and overall yucky ingredient-free! It even has added protein and hidden veggies! You get your chocolate brownie fill without the guilt since there’s veggies and added protein! In traditional brownies, you use eggs, butter, and hydrogenated vegetable oil. But I substituted the eggs for flax eggs, the butter for sunflower seed butter, and the zucchini is what helps to keep the loaf moist, which is what the oil is for! This bread is kid approved, fitness junkie approved, and health-conscious mom approved! Good for all on the go who want a little pick-me-up in the morning, after school, before the gym, or even for dessert!
