  4. Add dry ingredients then mix at low speed just until combined. Fold in zucchini and chocolate chips, reserving 1 tablespoon chocolate chips for sprinkling over top of the loaf.

  5. Pour into the prepared loaf pan, sprinkle reserved chocolate chips over top.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Tent loaf with foil at about 45 minutes to prevent excessive browning on top.

  7. Cool in the loaf pan for about 3 minutes then run a sharp knife around the edges of the loaf to insure it’s loose then remove the loaf. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into slices once cool.
