4 Ingredient Chocolate Zucchini Bread


4 Ingredient Chocolate Zucchini Bread- this stuff is SO good! This gluten free version at is super moist and delicious and uses up lots of fresh #zucchini !

I love zucchini bread in the summer. It’s moist, semi-sweet, and who doesn’t have a zillion zucchinis they need to use up? It doesn’t take forever to make a delicious chocolate zucchini bread, and I am showing a method that allows you to make bread from a boxed cake mix! Really… and it is SO good! Best of all, I am using a gluten free cake mix, but any type of boxed cake mix will work for this quick bread recipe.

You can’t get any easier than four ingredients- and this is also an affordable way to make delicious gluten free bread! I use Bob’s Red Mill because I prefer to use non-GMO grains when I can, but really- any type of boxed chocolate cake mix will do- gluten free or not.


4 Ingredient Chocolate Zucchini Bread
  • 4 small or medium zucchinis, grated
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • water, depending on how moist zucchini is
  1. Grate zucchinis with a cheese grater using a small opening, place in large bowl.
  2. Crack 3 eggs and combine with grated zucchini.
  3. Stir in cake mix and combine thoroughly.
  4. Add just a little water at a time if zucchini isn't moist enough to get to a thick, bread consistency.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  6. Check bread, and if knife comes out clean, it is done.
  7. If there is a little mix on the knife, cook for another 10 minutes, checking every five minutes, or until done.

If you’d like, drizzle a little powdered sugar-water frosting over the top (be sure your powdered sugar contains pure corn starch not modified corn starch if you are GF), or you can even pour some store bought frosting over it.


TIP: if your kid is a picky eater like mine, you can also sneak in a few shredded carrots, diced spinach and generous handfulls of chia seeds and flax meal, too. My boy loves carbs, so whenever hes eating breads I try to sneak in as many veggies and healthy omega 3 packed seeds as I can 🙂

  1. My 4 zucchinis made about 4 cups if not more so it took forever to cook, like more than 1 hour, but the cake/bread tasted really good 🙂

  2. Looks wonderful! Could you tell me about how many cups of grated zucchini you need for this recipe. I grate my zucchini and freeze it in 1-2 cup portions when I have extra for recipes like this. Thanks

    1. Sandy, that’s a great idea! It would be about a cup or two- depending on how much you want. I’d thaw it fully because frozen zucchini has a lot of liquid it gives off- then add in a cup and stir. If you need more moisture, add more- start less and then add more if its not too liquid.
