Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Ingredients

4 eggs at room temp

1 cup nut butter, I like almond butter or cashew best for the taste.

1 cup pumpkin puree

2 tsp vanilla bean paste or sub vanilla extract 

1/4 cup maple syrup

4 cups shredded zucchini, strained, squeezed, aired out

2 cups almond flour 

1 Tbsp Pumpkin pie spice 

2-4 Tbsp coconut sugar ( ratio depends on how sweet you like things to be)

1 tsp flaked sea salt 

2 tsp baking soda 

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 cup dark mini chocolate chips split between the two pans

Optional**

Add nuts or seeds on the top with the chocolate chips. I’d recommend macadamia nuts, pecans, or slivered almonds.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 and prep your baking loaf tins. I like to use parchment paper to line the loaf pans, it helps keep everything non-stick.

Using a mixer, I used my kitchen-aid to add eggs, nut butter, pumpkin puree, vanilla paste & maple syrup, and mix. Then add the zucchini, really making sure all the juice is out, take one last squeeze before adding. Mix all ingredients one more time to ensure everything is evenly combined.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and add in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, coconut sugar, sea salt, baking soda & chia seeds, and fold in. Only mix until combined, you don’t want to overmix.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tins and top with dark chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Place on the center rack of the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes. I put the 10 min span to have you start checking the loaf with a toothpick. Remove once the toothpick comes out clean. You don’t want undercooked or overcooked. Allow the loaf pan to cool completely before removing the loaf from the pan. 

I like really thick slices of this pumpkin zucchini bread to allow for a bunch of chocolate in each bite. This bread is delicious on its own or you can pop it in the oven on broil to crisp up the sides and add a little salted butter on top.
