Vegan/Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread choczu


  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 6 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 cup  brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free, dairy-free milk (almond, soy, or rice milk)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini


  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. In small bowl, whisk together ground flax seed and water. Set aside.

  2. In large bowl, whisk together brown rice flour, dark brown sugar, sorghum flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and xanthan gum. Add ground flax seed mixture, oil, and dairy-free milk. Whisk to combine. Batter will be thick. Switch to a rubber spatula, and stir in grated zucchini. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.

  3. Bake until loaf is set and a cake tester comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Allow loaf to cool in pan for five minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
