Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Bread |Gluten-Free | Queen of Quinoa

By now you know, I love chocolate. It’s one of my many weaknesses. One that tempts me each night. One that I can’t stay away from as hard as I try. One that makes me do a happy dance with every bite.

Chocolate is amazing. In everything almost everything. From fudgy quinoa brownies, to vegan chocolate cakes, to soft, gluten-free cookies. It’s chocolate that’s the star.

But most people think that chocolate can only be reserved for dessert.

Well, I’m here to tell you how very wrong they are. Chocolate is also the perfect breakfast food. Whether it’s mixed in a smoothie, in a gluten-free muffin, or in a fabulous breakfast bread, you can never go wrong with chocolate.

Feel like your breakfast could use a little chocolate infusion? Hop on over to the Balanced Platter to see my recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Bread!

    The link to the Balanced Platter isn’t working. I get “Not Found”. Could you repost the recipe, please?

    • Queen of Quinoa

      Try it now, I think it should be working. Sorry about that!

      • kelly martinez

        hi I am not able to pull it up either

  • Sarah Dugo

    Have you found a dark chocolate powder that you can use? Preferences? I’d don’t like the hassle of grating chocolate.

      Sarah – I actually get mine in bulk at a natural foods store. It’s raw and unsweetened. As far as packaged ones, I would definitely go for raw if you can find it, and if not then at least organic and fair trade. I think Equal Exchange might have one! xo Alyssa

    This looks delish! The perfect way to use up thew overwhelming amount of zucchini that seems to overrun Vermont in the early fall!

    • Queen of Quinoa

      I completely agree. My mom’s garden is still swimming in gigantic zucchini!

  • Amy

    I want to make this but am kind of lazy. Can I use store bought quinoa flour?

    • Queen of Quinoa

      Yes, you definitely can! But make sure to toast the flour beforehand or you won’t get the same flavor :)

  • The Healthy Epicurean

    This looks divine! A great idea for breakfast – I always tend to eat something oat-based as I can’t eat gluten. This would make a lovely change :-) Thank you!

  • Amy @ Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free

    Thanks for sharing my chocolate blueberry protein smoothie with your readers.
