Paleo Spicy Chocolate Zucchini Bread

  • Author: Holley -
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 3 oz chocolate (70% or higher)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 habanero (seeded and grated- Like it hot? Leave the seeds in)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch cayenne
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp crème de tartar


  • 1 cup walnuts


  1. Grate zucchini, salt it, and set aside.
  2. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together, mixing well in a large bowl or food processor.
  3. Add honey, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Continue to mix.
  4. Squeeze out the water from the zucchini, a cheese cloth or an old, clean tea towel will help press as much moisture out as possible. If you miss this step your loaf will be mushy.
  5. Add zucchini to processor and pulse.
  6. Add habanero (or the Chili pepper of your choice) to processor and pulse.
  7. Add cayenne, cocoa, coconut flour, soda, crème de tatar and mix.
  8. Add walnuts (optional) and stir.
  9. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour the mixture in.
  10. In a pre-heated oven bake at 350 F for 40 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Any chili peppers would do for this, Thai, jalapeño, habanero; not a fan of spicy? Avoiding nightshades? This loaf is delicious with the chilies omitted as well.
