Keto Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This Keto Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread was super simple to make and the whole family loved it. When we can make a recipe that satisfies all three of these requirements “contains veggies” is “low carb”, and is great for “snacks on the go”, it’s a huge win. I love watching our daughter’s face light up when she loves a new keto recipe.

 

Often times people following a low carb or keto lifestyle find it challenging to get enough fiber and electrolytes into their daily eating plan. This can lead to constipation and discomfort. The process of evacuating our bowels 1-3 times a day is an important part of allowing toxins to leave our body. Increasing high fiber foods, pink salt, and water can really help keep things moving and help deal with constipation and bloating.

Zucchini is naturally high in fiber and low in calories. It’s mild in taste which makes it great for baked goods. According to WebMD it may also help prevent cancer with it’s zeaxanthin that reduces oxidative stress. It’s B6 can help with regulating blood glucose and prevent diabetes. They also play a big role in eye health.

We love zucchini as a low carb and a low calorie alternative for pasta noodles and in place of rice for stir frys. Most larger supermarkets are now offering pre-made zucchini noodles as well which saves a tonne of time. You can also purchase a vegetable spiralizer and do it yourself if you prefer to grow your own zucchinis or avoid buying packaged foods.

Check out the notes at the bottom of this post to fine tune this recipe or make it more fun by adding berries, sugar free chocolate chips, etc.

Don’t forget to squeeze out as much water as possible to get the best texture in your bread and avoid sogginess and disappointment 🙂
