Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Servings 10


  • approx. 11 cm x 25 cm loaf pan


  • 260 g zucchini
  • 150 g dark chocolate melted (for the dough)
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 1 banana ripe
  • approx. 100 ml plant milk (e.g. soy, almond or oat milk)
  • 100 ml vegetable oil
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 15 g corn starch
  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder
  • 6 g baking powder
  • vanilla
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 160 g flour
  • 30 g dark chocolate coarsely chopped (for sprinkling)


  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, cornstarch, instant coffee powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Mash banana with a fork, add plant milk, vanilla as well as vegetable oil and mix it. Take a little less vegetable milk first and add the rest as needed in the next step.
  • Add the liquid banana mixture to the dry flour mixture and mix it into a creamy dough. The batter should not be too runny, but not too firm either. If it's too firm for you, add more plant milk.
  • Coarsely grate the zucchini. Stir the shredded zucchini and melted dark chocolate into the banana flour mixture.
  • Line the baking pan with baking paper, pour the creamy batter into the pan, sprinkle with chopped dark chocolate and bake the chocolate zucchini bread in a preheated oven at 170 °C for about 1 hour. Let it cool down a bit in the baking pan, then take it out together with baking paper and let it cool down completely.


  • Use a little less plant milk first and add the rest later if needed, if your dough is not thick but too firm.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch and baking powder best.
  • Do not stir the dough too long.
  • Use good quality dark chocolate with high cocoa content.
  • Line loaf pan with baking paper.
  • Do chopstick test to check if the cake is done baking.
  • Let the chocolate bread cool thoroughly before cutting.
