Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Inactive Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 55 minutes


  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup (heaping) cocoa
  • 3/4 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips, or regular chips, chopped up[br]
  • Topping:
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil and sugars till smooth. Whisk in eggs, zucchini, buttermilk, and vanilla till well blended. In small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cocoa. Add to wet ingredients with the chocolate chips. Stir just till blended.

Spread batter into 2 8" loaf pans that have been well greased and floured. I like to line the bottom with parchment paper.

Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl, and sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove to cooling racks.

To make muffins, spoon batter into well greased muffin pans, sprinkle with topping, and bake for about 18 minutes.
