How to do it

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  2. ADD the melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, and honey, to a large bowl. Using an electric mixer on HIGH for 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy. (I do recommend using a mixer, however mixing together with a wooden spoon would also work)
  3. ADD the eggs and beat just until combined.
  4. PLACE the shredded zucchini in a paper towel and squeeze out the excess water over the sink until little to no water is left dripping off.
  5. ADD the grated zucchini to the wet ingredients, and use a wooden spoon stir to combine.
  6. ADD the VaVa Vanilla Dilettoso Mix and pumpkin pie spice to the wet ingredients and stir to combine, careful not to over mix. It's ok if a few streaks of flour remain.
  7. FOLD in the chocolate chips.
  8. SCRAPE the zucchini bread batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top.
  9. BAKE for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only moist crumb clinging to it.
  10. LET the bread cool in the pan, and then slice to serve.
