Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Whisk brown sugar, eggs, applesauce, and vanilla extract in a second large mixing bowl. Stir zucchini into the liquid ingredients and beat in flour mixture until batter is just combined; do not overbeat. Gently mix in cinnamon baking chips. Divide batter evenly between prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a loaf comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing loaves to finish cooling on wire racks.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This freezes well, so you can have it later in the year. Just wrap in plastic wrap (whole or sliced), then place in freezer plastic bag before freezing. Instead of 2 large loaves, you can bake 5 small foil loaf pans for giving as gifts.
